Last Friday (21), the Superior Court of Sports Justice (STJD) defined punishments to the palm trees for midfielder Danilo and coach Abel Ferreira, due to the expulsions against Santos in a classic disputed by the second round of the Brasileirão Série A.
Coach Abel Ferreira received a one-match suspension, while Danilo had a two-game suspension due to the red card. Despite that, the palm trees races against time to try to have the steering wheel this Saturday (22).
In the last few hours, the club alviverde filed an appeal with the STJD to try a suspensive effect on Danilo’s punishment, seeking to make possible the presence of the steering wheel in tonight’s duel, starting at 21:00 by Brasília time, against Avaí.

Tonight’s confrontation is seen as fundamental to try to put the palm trees on the winning path after two consecutive draws. In addition, the triumph in this round and a possible defeat of the International this Sunday (23) allow alviverde to celebrate the Brazilian title next Tuesday.
If midfielder Danilo is not available, coach Abel Ferreira will choose Gabriel Menino or Atuesta to occupy the sector. Regardless of the decision of the Superior Court of Sports Justice (STJD), Danilo was present in all training sessions during the week.
