Flamengo and Corinthians decide this Tuesday, at Maracanã, the first semifinalist of the Libertadores 2022. After winning the first leg of the quarterfinals by 2-0, Rubro-Negro is ahead in the series and can even lose by a goal difference to guarantee classification.

In addition to the spot in the semifinals, this Tuesday’s duel is also worth a prize of 2 million dollars (about R$ 10.3 million at the current price). As the qualifying goal is no longer a tiebreaker, the classification will be decided on penalties if Corinthians wins by two goals difference.

Without suspensions or new absences due to injury, Flamengo must repeat the lineup of the first game, at Neo Química Arena. The team is having a good time this season and has been undefeated for eight matches. The last defeat was precisely against Corinthians, on July 10, for the Brazilian Championship.

In search of an almost impossible mission, Corinthians must have a very offensive team against Flamengo. Vítor Pereira usually hides the lineup even from the athletes, but the tendency is for an attacking trio with Róger Guedes, Yuri Alberto and Willian – the latter recovering from tendinitis, which took him out of the first match. Another important return is that of Renato Augusto.
