Team News: Corinthians
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just one fitness concern for the Corinthians boss Tiago Nunes to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Danilo Avelar (Cruciate Ligament Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Flamengo
Due to a mostly available squad, there is just the lone fitness worry for the Flamengo manager Domènec Torrent to be concerned about. Giorgian de Arrascaeta (Muscle Injury) won’t be in action.
We feel that over the course of the game, Corinthians will need to push hard to register a score against this Flamengo outfit who we think will likely be able to grind out a win.
We’ve gone for a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 victory for Flamengo at the end of the 90.
Should be a close one.
