The players returning from the national team were off this Friday and did not participate in the activity at the beginning of the day, at Ninho do Urubu. The trio will re-appear on Saturday morning at CT and will be re-evaluated, but the forecast is that it will be available to Renato Gaúcho.
The expectation is that the coach will send an squad with Diego Alves, Isla, Rodrigo Caio, Léo Pereira and Filipe Luís; Willian Arão, Andreas Pereira, Everton Ribeiro and Vitinho; Michael and Gabriel.
David Luiz is making good progress in recovering from a thigh injury and already works with physiotherapists on the lawn, while Bruno Henrique and Arrascaeta are still undergoing treatment.
With 45 points, Flamengo is the vice-leader of Brasileirão, behind Atlético-MG, which has 56 and two games more.
