Flamengo – Coach: Jorge Jesus
During a week with the headlines for negotiations with Balotelli, Jorge Jesus had the peace of mind to work on the team at Ninho do Urubu and received good news: Gabigol is back. Brasileiro's top scorer has recovered from a muscle injury and is confirmed to try to score for the first time against Vasco with the Flamengo shirt.
Without the suspended Rafinha, Rodinei is the natural replacement. The only question is in the midfield: retaining Cuéllar or returning with Éverton Ribeiro. The Colombian has an indefinite future at the club evaluating proposals from Saudi Arabia's Al Hilal and Italy's Bologna. Despite the imbroglio, the delegation in Brasilia accompanies.
Already Ribeiro is in full physical form and in the natural environment is the team's starting lineup. Jorge Jesus worked both formations. If he chooses shirt 7, Willian Aaron resigns and acts as the first steering wheel.
