After two consecutive weeks without playing, Verdão goes to the field looking for victory to increase the difference for the opponent in the competition. Currently, the team is the runner-up, with 35 points, four ahead of Rubro-Negro, who have two games in hand.
Palmeiras is going with full strength to the confrontation. Coach Abel Ferreira will not have any embezzlement, with the exception of lateral Jorge, who has already arrived at the club injured and has not yet made his debut.
Flamengo has a lot of problems for this match, a list of eight absences, including Gabigol and four other players considered as starters. The good news for Renato Gaúcho is the presence of Everton Ribeiro, a highlight of the Brazilian team in the matches against Chile and Peru.
