Team News: Flamengo
Giorgian de Arrascaeta (Hamstring Injury) and Gabriel Noga (Knee Injury) aren’t available for Flamengo manager Jorge Sampaoli.
In our view, Fla could use a 3-5-2 formation in the match, beginning the first half with Matheus Cunha, Fabrício Bruno, David Luiz, Léo Pereira, Wesley, Allan, Gerson, Everton Ribeiro, Everton, Pedro and Gabriel Barbosa.
Team News: Atletico PR
Atletico PR boss Wesley Carvalho has a number of players out of action. Pedro Henrique (Injury to the ankle) and Bento (Thigh Problems) can’t be considered.
It’s our belief that Furação will likely begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation, giving starts to Léo Linck, Madson, Cacá, Thiago Heleno, Lucas Esquivel, Erick Carvalho, Arturo Vidal, Vitor Bueno, Hugo Moura, Agustín Canobbio and Rômulo Cardoso.
We’re of the opinion that Atletico PR will have to play well to find the net against this Flamengo outfit who we reckon will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’re therefore seeing a narrow 1-0 winning margin for Flamengo at the conclusion of the game.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
