The Barcelona SC manager Fabián Bustos will be thankful to have no fitness worries to speak of coming into this match with a completely healthy squad available for selection.

Due to a mostly full-strength group, there’s just a single fitness problem for the Flamengo boss Renato Portaluppi to be concerned with. Giorgian de Arrascaeta (Fitness) misses out for this game.
We think that Barcelona SC will need to push hard to be putting a goal past this Flamengo team who should be able to grind out a win.
We’re therefore predicting a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 advantage for Flamengo after 90 minutes.
