Flamengo faces Vasco da Gama next Saturday (17), a match valid for the 15th round of the Brazilian Championship. The game is scheduled to start at 7pm (Brazil Time) at the Mané Garincha Stadium in Brazil. Alvinegro carioca coach Vanderlei Luxemburg will have trouble creating a team that will face Red Black.
This is because in the 1-0 win over Goiás Vasco left striker Maroni. Defensive midfielder Marcos Junior received a third yellow card and was also stopped for the confrontation. In addition, Rossi has already been assigned for surgery after appendicitis and is doubtful. Striker Talles Magno is in the lineup for the friendly U17, which will be played on Thursday (15) and Saturday (10).
Vasco, however, will ask Vasco's attacker to be released from the summons. After his victory over Goias Vanderlei, Luxembourg spoke on the subject and emphasized that he was only friendly:You need to have common sense. We need a player here. It's nice! What will be important? This too will be missedVasco's commander complained.
If Vasco fails to let the player down and Rossi does not recover, Luxembourg will be left without four players against Flamengo. In Red Black, however, Gabigol and Lincoln are expected to return to the squad after recovering from muscle injuries. However, Rodrigo Cayo has yet to be named for Jorge Jesus, as well as Diego and Vitino, who are recovering from surgery.
