Flamengo faces Fortaleza this Wednesday (28), at 7pm, at Castelão. The match is valid for the 28th round of the Brazilian Championship. Coach Dorival Júnior will not be able to count on anything less than ten players, as he has six called up, two injured and two suspended.
With that, the Flamengo coach will have to improvise to take Rubro-Negro to the field. Dorival should mix starters, reserves and even U-20 players. Without Everton, Pedro, Arrascaeta, Varela, Vidal, Pulgar, Marinho and Cebolinha, the team should go to the field with at least one big surprise.

Journalist Venê Casagrande published a video this Monday (26) on his YouTube channel and revealed the team he trained in today’s activity. According to Venê, Dorival tested two variations in the training. In both, he used U-20 youth.
In the first option, the team formed with Santos, Rodinei, David Luiz, Leo Pereira, Filipe Luís; Thiago Maia, João Gomes, Victor Hugo and Matheus França; Gabigol and Matheusao. In this case, Gabigol plays circling, but Matheusão plays a role similar to Pedro’s.
In the other trained formation, Dorival replaced Matheusão with Peterson, another gem of the base divisions. In this case, the team is more like Flamengo with Bruno Henrique. Gabigol plays more centrally and Peterson opens on the left.
