Team News: Flamengo
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the sole fitness concern for the Flamengo boss Adenor Tite to be concerned about from a near full-strength set of players. Gabriel Noga (Knee injury) won’t play.
Team News: Red Bull Bragantino
Red Bull Bragantino manager Pedro Caixinha has not got a full squad to pick from. Eduardo Santos (Torn lateral knee ligament) and Lucas Cunha (Torn lateral knee ligament) will miss out on this game.
When taking everything into account, Red Bull Bragantino could find themselves up against it to get anything against this Flamengo team who we reckon will manage to score & go ahead.
We’re going for a very even contest with a 1-0 advantage for Flamengo when the full-time whistle blows.
Should be a close one.
