Between comings and goings, casualties and returns, Dome promises the 'best Flamengo possible' for second game in 48 hours

With no time for optimal recovery, nor for the team to work on this Thursday’s game, coach Domènec Torrent promises to send the “best Flamengo possible” to face Red Bull Bragantino. Between the opening whistle of the game against Goiás, on Tuesday, and the next appointment for the Brasileirão, it is 50h for the Spaniard to hear everyone involved and define, in the midst of the absences and returns of the selections, the 11 athletes that will be starting.

– I don’t know what will happen to the athletes who are in the national teams. Let’s watch the games and talk to them. For the next game, the idea is to change a lot. Let’s ask how they feel, if they are tired, with a muscle problem. We have a lot of information with Dr. Márcio Tanure, who tells me if there is a risk of injury. We will put the best team for the next game – said the coach after the 2-1 win, with two goals from center forward Pedro.


In addition to Gabriel Barbosa and João Lucas, injured, Flamengo has another certain low for the game against Bragantino: left-back Filipe Luís received the third yellow card and will comply with automatic suspension. The young Ramon and the experienced Renê are the names available to Domènec Torrent for the role.

On the other hand, Diego will be back to the coach’s options after being left out of the match against Goiás for being suspended. Thus, Fla will have at least one midfielder in a position to act, which did not happen this Tuesday.


Recovered from the injury in his left shoulder, Diego Alves was once again referred by Dome and stayed on the bench against Goiás. Experienced and in a great technical moment until suffering the injury, on August 30, the trend is that shirt 1 regains ownership , as highlighted by Domènec Torrent on Tuesday.

– We have four wonderful goalkeepers. Today Hugo played. Everyone knows how important Diego is to the team. He is the captain and an excellent goalkeeper. He had a very difficult injury, trained three days with the squad, is coming back little by little. Let’s see what happens. We are happy with everyone. Diego is training with the team, trained very well, and is a goalkeeper with great experience. Hugo is very well. Let’s go little by little – evaluated the commander red-black.


Isla and Rodrigo Caio, holders of Chile and Brazil, respectively, this Tuesday, return to the country after disputing the South American Qualifiers and will be heard by the technical committee and evaluated by the medical department, as well as Everton Ribeiro, who was also at Tite’s service. in the last days. As for Arrascaeta, the situation is more critical, since the Uruguayan suffered a muscle injury in his left thigh and will return to the club already in recovery.

In addition to the re-presentation this Wednesday, with the starters in front of Goiás doing regenerative work, the Thursday morning will be decisive for Dome to define the lineup that will go to the field to face Red Bull Bragantino. With the coach saying that he intends to make many changes, a probable Flamengo formation has Hugo (Diego Alves); Matheuzinho, Noga (Léo Pereira), Natan and Ramon (Renê); Willian Arão, Thiago Maia and Diego; Michael, Vitinho and Lincoln.
