Thiago Maia doesn't worry, Vidal is high and Varela misses Flamengo in the Libertadores final

The starting midfielder has already trained on the field for part of this Monday’s activity, but the Chilean will only work with the ball in Ecuador. Uruguayan side is vetoed by the medical department for the decision

Flamengo’s medical shift started the Libertadores last week with the good news that Thiago Maia doesn’t worry about getting Athletico-PR, Saturday, in Guayaquil. Arturo Vidal, who underwent a leg procedure, is discharged this Monday, and a muscle injury takes Guillermo Varela out of the decision.

After leaving the last of the Copa do Brasil complaining of pain in the knee, Thiago Maia underwent intensive treatment in recent days and was already on the field this Monday. Preserved in the duel against Santos, when he will be replaced by Pulgar, the midfielder did activities on the field and participated in a few minutes of training with the ball along with his teammates.

On the other hand, Arturo Vidal woke up on Monday still hospitalized after a procedure to drain liquid right leg and is discharged from the healthcare facility in the afternoon. He is expected to undergo treatment at the CT on Tuesday, but activity in the field will only take place in Ecuador.

For people close to him, the Chilean has already made it clear that he will not lose the last in any way and will be available to Dorival. The circumstances, however, indicate sacrifice and there are opportunities for an online forum for the last matches of the Brasileirão to be prepared for 2023

Finally, an injury to the posterior muscle of the left thigh takes Varela off the back. The decision not to try to recover him for the decision was made by consensus by the player, the coaching staff and the medical department in view of the proximity of the World Cup. With the risk of worsening the injury and with two players available for the position, the Uruguayan travels to Ecuador to encourage his teammates.

Flamengo and Athletico-PR decide the Libertadores on Saturday at 5 pm ( Brasília), at the Monumental Stadium in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
