He escaped from being booed after leaving the front in the marker and yielding the tie by 1 to 1.
The canceled performance, however, did not prevent protests. Fans have piled the clubhouse. The main targets of the complaints were the president Eduardo Bandeira de Mello and the half Diego.
It is a new chapter of the crisis that began with the defeat for Botafogo in the semifinals of the Campeonato Carioca, causing the dismissal of coach Paulo César Carpegianni and Rodrigo Caetano, responsible for the direction of football and casting the cast for the current season.
The team goes without command. Coach Maurício Barbieri has even received support from the players and the board but is only in the position because the direction did not find another option. In the game for Libertadores, the attacker was displeased Henrique Dourado, author of the red-black goal, to take it out in the second half.
For the duel this Saturday he will not be able to count on Everton Ribeiro. The player was sent off in the 2-2 draw with Vitória in Salvador in the first round and will have to comply with automatic suspension. The coach did not advance who should be the substitute. Geuvânio and William Aaron are the most highly rated.
The probable team for the match is Diego Alves; Rodinei, Réver, Juan and Renê; Cuéllar, Lucas Paquetá, Diego, Geuvânio (William Aarão); Vinicius Júnior and Henrique Dourado.

For the confrontation this Saturday, is expected the debut of veteran driver Leandro Donizete, hired by loan with Santos. The former player of Atlético-MG has the function of putting his experience at the service of the team and also increase the power of marking.
Midfield formation has been one of the most unstable. Although much of the cast has been retained from last season’s 15 games in the 2018 season, America has used seven different pair of flyers. Against the red-black, the entrance of Donizete would cause that an eighth partnership is formed. It remains to know who will be chosen by Moreira.
