Santos is undefeated for six matches in the Brasileirão. The retrospect, however, is not the best. There are five draws and only one victory. In addition, in the last four games inside Vila Belmiro in the season, Peixe lost one and drew another three. In seventh place, with 19 points, Fabián Bustos’ team tries to get back to the G-4.

After the victories over América-MG, for the Brazilian, and over Tolima, for the Libertadores, Flamengo de Dorival Júnior gave a chill in the pressure after the defeats to Atlético-MG. In ninth place with 18 points, the red-black team overtakes Peixe in the event of a victory and glues to the G-6. The coach will again have a lot of embezzlement.

After 10 absences in the duel against Deportivo Táchira, for the Copa Sudamericana, coach Fabián Bustos should have almost the entire squad for the game against Flamengo. The coach himself, who served a suspension against Corinthians last Saturday, returns to the bench.

With the squad quite worn out because of the trip to Colombia, the trend is for changes for this Saturday’s game. There is a chance that Arrascaeta and Gabigol will not start the match.
