Erick Pulgar and Everton Ribeiro return after serving automatic suspension for the third yellow card
Flamengo faces Fortaleza this Sunday (05), at 4pm (Brasília time), in the 32nd round of the Brazilian Championship. For the Arena Castelão clash, coach Tite will have two ‘reinforcements’. These are Erick Pulgar and Everton Ribeiro.
Suspended for a third yellow card, the two players were absent from Flamengo in a game against Santos, last Wednesday (01). After serving an automatic suspension, both Erick Pulgar and Everton Ribeiro are once again available to Tite for this Sunday’s duel (05).
MISSINGS IN FLAMENGO
For the game against Fortaleza, coach Tite will have a ‘headache’ when it comes to choosing the starting team. This is because, expelled in the confrontation with Santos, Gerson and Bruno Henrique will miss Rubro-Negro. Furthermore, David Luiz and Allan, who are still recovering from injuries, will not be available in the match on Sunday (05).
FLAMENGO’S SITUATION IN BRASILEIRÃO
With two consecutive defeats, Flamengo ended up having their reaction ‘braked’ in the Brasileirão. In this way, Mengo dropped one position on the leaderboard and is now sixth in the tournament, with 50 points.
Given this, Flamengo is looking for victory against Fortaleza to continue hunting for the front group. This way, in the event of a triumph at Arena Castelão, Rubro-Negro could return to the G4 of the table and even reduce the advantage for leader Botafogo, which remains in nine.
Flamengo and Fortaleza takes place this Sunday (05), at 4pm (Brasília time), at Arena Castelão. The confrontation will be valid for the 32nd round of the Brasileirão. At the moment, Mengo is in sixth place, with 50 points. The Fortaleza team is ninth, totaling 42.
Coluna do Fla, as usual, brings the most red-black broadcast on the internet, on YouTube. However, Rede Globo, on an open channel, and Premiere, via pay-per-view, also show the Arena Castelão clash.
