Palmeiras defined Ciudad Deportiva do San Lorenzo, on the border of the neighborhoods of Flores and Vila Soldatti, as their training location in Argentina.
Flores is a neighborhood relatively far from the central region of Buenos Aires and Puerto Madero, where the club will be staying, and La Boca, where the La Bombonera stadium is located, site of the first leg of the Libertadores semifinal, against Boca Juniors.
Alviverde has worked at San Lorenzo on other occasions, such as when they faced Defensa y Justicia in the Recopa Sul-Americana, in 2021. This year, the Ciclón facilities were used by teams that participated in the U20 World Cup.
When he played in Brazil, as happened this year, when he faced Corinthians, in the Libertadores, and São Paulo, in the Sudamericana, San Lorenzo also trained at the Palmeiras Football Academy.

Palmeiras travels to Buenos Aires on Tuesday night (26) and trains in Boedo on Wednesday (27). The team returns to Brazil on Thursday, right after the match against Boca Juniors.
Just as it was for Pereira, in Colombia, Alviverde will travel to Argentina on a Placar plane, a company owned by Leila Pereira, president of the club. Leila, who will pay for the team’s travel, as her company does not yet have a license to operate commercially, will also take dozens of the club’s advisors to Buenos Aires with another plane.
Palmeiras will face Boca on the 28th, at 9:30 pm, in the Copa Libertadores semi-final. The return will be on October 5th, at Allianz Parque.
