The trauma to the right foot happened after a split at the entrance of the area at 31 minutes of the second half. Immediately, Arrascaeta turned to the bench and made the final substitution. While Pulgar warmed up, shirt 14 still felt cramps in his calf and reinforced the need for replacement. The technical commission, in turn, monitors the case with tranquility.
There is confidence that it will only be a hit and Arrascaeta will remain available for the final stretch of the season. If the diagnosis is positive, Flamengo will increase the series to 54 days and 15 games without losing players due to injury since Rodrigo Caio left the game with Corinthians, for the Brasileirão, with a knee problem, on July 10.
With good advantages in the semifinals of Libertadores and Copa do Brasil, Flamengo enters the field for the Brasileirão next Sunday, at 11 am (GMT), to face Ceará, for the 25th round. With 43 points, the team is in second place, behind Palmeiras, in first with 50 and facing Bragantino, on Saturday, away from home.
