Still without Geromel, Grêmio announces plans to face Palmeiras

Grêmio released in the early afternoon of this Thursday (21) the list of candidates to face Palmeiras, at 9:30 pm, at the Arena, in a match valid for the 24th round of the Brazilian Championship. As predicted, Geromel remains out.

The defender, who is recovering from a muscle injury, is already training with the ball with the rest of the squad. However, he is not yet 100% ready to play again.

Geromel suffered a grade 1 injury to the biceps femoris of his left thigh in the 3-0 victory over Cruzeiro, on August 27th. The match marked the defender’s debut of the season, after eight months of recovery from a knee problem, diagnosed in January.

Defender receives tribute

Interestingly, this Thursday Geromel is celebrating his birthday. The Grêmio idol turns 38 years old.

In tribute, Tricolor Gaúcho launched a special shirt, autographed by the defender and with an exclusive stamp. There are only 120 units for sale. The number is a reference to the club’s anniversary, celebrated last week.

Kannemann is also missing

In addition to Geromel, the one who is also missing for Grêmio against Palmeiras is Kannemann. The Argentine is suspended for his third yellow card, received in the 4-4 draw with Corinthians, last Monday (18).

With this, the defense duo will be formed by Rodrigo Ely and Bruno Alves. In the lineup, there are two doubts. On the right flank, between Fábio and João Pedro, and in midfield, between Nathan and Galdino. The likely tricolor has Gabriel Grando; Fábio (João Pedro), Rodrigo Ely, Bruno Alves and Reinaldo; Villasanti, Pepê, Nathan (Galdino) and Cristaldo; João Pedro Galvão and Suárez.

Situation of teams in the Brazilian Championship

With the victories of RB Bragantino and Fluminense, Tricolor Gaúcho left the G-4 and momentarily occupies 5th position, with 40 points. If you win, you will return to 3rd place. Palmeiras, who is second in the standings, with 44, targets Botafogo. The current distance to the leader of the Brazilian Championship is seven points.
