Gabigol has recovered from injury and will be available to Tite in the ‘decision’ against Palmeiras
Flamengo is prepared for another ‘decision’ in the season. At 9:30 pm (Brasília time) this Wednesday (08), Mais Querido faces Palmeiras, in the 33rd round of the Brazilian Championship. Before the ball rolled at Maracanã, striker Gabigol sent a message to the red and black fans.
On the eve of the confrontation, number 10 took to social media and made a point of ‘inflaming’ the Nation with the following phrase: “Until the end. May God’s will be done”. It is important to highlight that, due to pain in his thigh adductor, Gabigol was absent from Flamengo in a game against Fortaleza, last Sunday (05). However, having recovered from the problem, the attacker is available to Tite against Palmeiras.
‘SIX POINTS’ GAME
The clash soon is extremely important for Flamengo’s sequence in the Brasileirão. This is because, with the victory against Palmeiras, Rubro-Negro can make an important ‘leap’ in the table and, with that, return to the G4 of the tournament. At the moment, Mengo is in sixth place, with 53 points.
Since arriving at Flamengo, coach Tite has made it clear that the team’s main objective is to win a direct place in the Libertadores da América. However, a victory soon could ‘change the club’s route’ in the Brasileirão. Defeating Palmeiras at Maracanã, and Botafogo losing to Grêmio on Thursday (09), the distance to the Rio rival, who is the leader of the tournament, drops to three points.
In front of a packed Maracanã, Flamengo faces Palmeiras this Wednesday (08), in the 33rd round of the Brasileirão. The duel takes place at 9:30 pm (Brasília time), at Maracanã. Coluna do Fla, as usual, brings the most red-black broadcast on the internet, on YouTube. However, Rede Globo (open channel) and Premiere (pay-per-view) also show the match.
