Coincidentally, the three foreigners Sampaoli has faced with Flamengo are Portuguese, as is Pedro Caixinha. The first gringo on the path of the Argentine was Luis Castro, who won Botafogo with a score of 3-2. On 30 April, at the Maracanã, Leo Pereira scored two goals for Mez Querredo, but not enough to secure the three points. .
In the only away game against foreigners – as it will happen on Thursday (22nd) – Jorge Sampaoli beat Renato Paiva of Bahia. In Salvador, on May 13, Flamengo won 3-2, with goals from Mateus França, Gabigol and David Luiz.
Flamengo de Sampaoli’s last duel was against a foreign-managed team at the Maracanã. Miss Querido did not come off in a 1-1 draw with Cruzeiro from Pepa on May 27th. The Miners took the lead with Marlon, but Ayrton Lucas equalized in the first period.
This means that in duels between foreign coaches Flamengo scored six goals and the same number of goals conceded. In the duels that went out on the scoreboard, Robro Negro failed to win. But when he lifted Zero off the scoreboard first, Fla outplayed him.
The Sampaoli-Gringos match takes place on Thursday (22nd), starting at 9:30 pm (Brasilia time), against Bragantino, Pedro Caixinha. The duel will be at Estádio Nabi Abi Chedid, in Bragança Paulista. Column do Fla is broadcasting the match live on YouTube.
