Flamengo announces its lineup to face Amazonas

The ball rolls for the Amazonas x Flamengo match at 9:30pm (Brasilia time) on Wednesday (22).

Qualifying to the round of 16 of the Brazilian Cup is worth it! Amazonas and Flamengo take the field later, at 9:30pm (Brasilia time) on Wednesday (22), for the rematch of the third stage of the knockout stage. For the clash at the Arena da Amazonia, coach Tite was not surprised and chose the team the fans expected.

Watch the Flamengo lineup:

Pregnant women: Matthews Cunha, Varela, Fabricio Bruno, Leo Ortiz and Ayrton Lucas; Alan, de la Cruz and Arascaita; Gerson, Everton Cipollina, Pedro.

Reservations: Rossi, Wesley, David Luiz, Clayton, Viña, Igor Jesus, Everton Araujo, Victor Hugo, Matthews Gonçalves, Laurent, Gabigol, Luiz Araujo.

From the ‘core team’ used by Tite, Flamengo made three changes. In the goal, the coach explained that Matheus Cunha is the main player in the Brazilian Cup. So the young player plays in Rossi’s place. In defence, Leo Pereira, who was handed over to the medical department, makes way for his namesake Leo Ortiz. Finally, Eric Pulgar is still injured, and Allan will have another chance.

On the other hand, the match is considered a preparation for the farewell of Fabricio Bruno. With signing negotiations advanced with West Ham (ING), the trend is for the match with Amazonas to be the No.15’s penultimate match with Manto Sagrado. The defender’s farewell will be on May 28, against Millonarios (Colorado), in the Libertadores, at the Maracana Stadium.

Gabigol 99

If Flamengo is defined on the pitch without surprises, off it, something new. After being embroiled in controversy for wearing a Corinthians shirt to a barbecue, Gabigol’s number 10 shirt has been removed. Therefore, the encounter at the Arena da Amazonia will be the striker’s first with the number 99. However, Gabriel will start on the bench.

Since they won the first leg 1-0 at the Maracanã, Flamengo could draw on Wednesday (22). If Amazonas wins by one goal, the match will go to penalty kicks. The decisive confrontation will be broadcast via Fla Column, live, on YouTube. Narration will be by Rafa Pinedo, with commentary by Tulio Rodriguez and reporting by Leo José, live from Manaus. In addition, subscription channel SporTV and the first pay-per-view show are showing the match.
