Occupying the top of the Serie A classification with 48 points, the team led by the Portuguese Abel Ferreira arrives refreshed for the confrontation, as it is out of the Copa do Brasil. This break was important for Palmeiras, which will feature the return of an important reinforcement, midfielder Gustavo Scarpa.

“[Precisamos] think only about how to beat Flamengo, as it will be an extremely difficult game, probably the hardest of the year. Let’s do our best and see what happens”, declared the player in an interview with TV Palmeiras.

With the team rested, and with only midfielder Jailson missing, the expectation is that Abel Ferreira will put on the field what he has best: Weverton; Marcos Rocha, Gustavo Gómez, Murilo and Piquerez; Danilo, Zé Rafael and Raphael Veiga; Dudu, Gustavo Scarpa and Rony.

For Flamengo, the match is an opportunity to reduce the nine-point difference to Verdão. For this, it is enough for the team led by Dorival Júnior to reach the seventh consecutive triumph in the Brazilian, where the coach sent an alternative team to the field in the last clashes.

Now, facing the leader of the competition, the question is: what will be the starting lineup of Flamengo this Sunday, a doubt that Dorival himself said at a press conference: “It is very difficult to know what I will do [diante do Palmeiras]. I’m thinking of changing as needed. We will have a decision Sunday and another Wednesday [pela Copa do Brasil contra o São Paulo]. We have nowhere to run. It’s a quick assessment, but I still can’t say anything”.

If the coach chooses to put the best player on the field, Flamengo will face Palmeiras with: Santos; Rodinei, Fabrício Bruno (David Luiz), Léo Pereira and Filipe Luís; João Gomes, Arturo Vidal (Thiago Maia), Everton Ribeiro and Arrascaeta; Gabriel Barbosa and Pedro
