With two goals in the league and 11 in the national championship, Tony is not training with the squad because of the injury which he acquired during the warm-up session before the championship game of last Saturday, which Petro drew nil-nil with Williet de Benguela, in the top division match for the first round of the second leg of the 2019/2020 championship.

To fill his place, coach Toni Cosano has Yano and Jacques Tuyissengue at his disposal.

Tony was in the initial line-up of Petro's last four games in the African League, in which they occupy the last position of the group with two points.

Petro de Luanda have been working in Luanda in their field, Catetão, in closed doors and are to end the preparation period this Friday (24), at the 11 de Novembro Stadium, where they will give a press conference to speak about the Saturday game.

In the first round (first leg bout), Petro lost 3-0, on the opponent's ground.
