Without conceding any goals, Flamengo, led by Tite, will undergo a “fiery test” with a rare defensive duo | Flamingo

“Era of Tait” in Flamingo It’s just the beginning, but if there’s one thing that stands out in the first two games, it’s defensive consistency. With a more organized team on the pitch, Rubro Negro came away with victories against Cruzeiro and Vasco without conceding a single goal.

The Flamengo team, led by Tite, did not concede any goals and will have the third defensive duo in 3 matches

To try to keep the red and black net intact, the task on Wednesday, against Gremio in the Arena, will fall to a rare defensive duo: Pablo and Leo Pereira. Together for a year and a half FlamingoThe two played only eight matches alongside each other, and in only two did they start.

The memories of these confrontations are not good: the 1-0 defeat against Atletico-PR in the Arena da Baixada, in the Brazilian championship last year; And 2-1 against Fluminense at the Maracanã, in the 2023 Guanabara Cup.

Pablo and Leo Pereira will form the third different defense in the third match under Tite. In the first match, coach Leo Pereira did not have to stop, and used David Luiz. Against Vasco, the coach thought of the starting lineup with the duo Leo and Fabricio Bruno, who in turn received a third yellow card and is now also absent from the team.

Although there is little connection between the red and black duo, it could be worse: Pablo and Leo Pereira will not have a difficult task to mark Suarez. The former Uruguayan star for Barcelona is also suspended due to the third yellow card and will not face Flamingo This Wednesday, at 9:30 pm (Brasilia time), in the 29th round of the Brazilian League. Everton Galdino is a potential alternative in Gremio’s attack.

As Tite himself likes to say, a team’s defense is not limited to the last line, but starts from the attackers (although the greatest responsibility for a very leaky defense always falls on the defenders). In this context, Pablo and Leo Pereira are looking for the duo’s first win in the starting lineup, which will leave the team. Flamingo Temporarily they are only six points behind leaders Botafogo, who have one match in hand.
