Flamengo has 45 points and started the round outside the G4. Dorival Júnior’s team comes from four matches without a win in the Brasileirão. With the draws with Ceará and Goiás, and the defeats for Fluminense and Fortaleza, he saw the chance to shorten the distance to five for Palmeiras to turn a difference of 15 points and bury the title chances. Winning is an emergency to reduce the pressure for the finals of the Copa do Brasil and Libertadores.
Bragantino enters the field with the intention of ending the fast of eight games without a win. The team, which comes from four consecutive draws, occupies the 13th place, with 35 points, tries to get away from the relegation zone and, consequently, keep alive the dream of reaching a spot in the Libertadores.

Flamengo – Coach Dorival Junior
Flamengo no longer has a gap for stumbling in the Brasileirão. With an eye on the direct spot in the Libertadores group stage without the obligation to be champion of Cups, Dorival Júnior will send a team close to the best available to the field. Only David Luiz and Filipe Luís will be spared by choice, while Léo Pereira and João Gomes are suspended. On the other hand, the selectable Vidal, Everton Ribeiro, Arrascaeta and Pedro are back.
