Team News: Flamengo
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Flamengo manager Rogério Ceni to be concerned about due to a largely intact set of players. Thiago Maia (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.
Team News: Internacional
Inter de PA boss Abel Braga has not got a full squad to pick from. Rodrigo Moledo (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Gabriel Boschilia (Knee Injury) are not able to play.
We envisage that Internacional will manage to find the back of the net against this Flamengo team, however that is unlikely to be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We reckon that it will be a close game with a 2-1 advantage for Flamengo by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
