Who Was Wrong – Lucas Fernandez and Diego

Lucas Fernandez, midfielder for Botafogo and Diego, Flamengo’s No. 10 shirt, had a more discreet performance.

Botafogo performance

Botafogo, for the first time, repeated the lineup with Luis Castro. The team has slightly changed the tagging technique and has been able to show more safety in the sector. In the offensive, Victor Sa and Givino found spaces and created dangerous plays.

Upon the return of the first half, Glorioso was still striving to maintain the rhythm of the initial stage, but after changes in Flamengo, he began to find it difficult to fit the marking. After that, he managed to reorganize himself to try to bring the opposing team back to the field of defense.

flamingo performance

Flamengo went to the field with the team called “The Substitute”, while the defending champions play in the Copa del Rey and Libertadores. However, Gabigol started the classic game, but played more openly, and Lazaro was more central. The sharpness was not what it showed in the previous games, and Robro Negro found difficulties in both creation and defense.

At the start of the second half, Dorival began to call up the “shock forces” and put Pedro and Everton Ribeiro, which made improvements and changed the face of the team. The team opened the scoring and created opportunities for expansion, but then saw the development of Botafogo.


The match started with Botafogo better and more dangerous, especially with Givino. In turn, Flamengo did not show the same expression as in previous matches, and showed difficulty in finding spaces.


Botafogo was about to open the scoring when Victor Saa invaded the area and crossed over to Junior Santos after hitting and hitting him. The striker fixed it and hit a bit under pressure, and Ayrton Lucas got the cut.

After a disagreement between Diego and Givenio, the two went down and Player 10 grabbed the ball. Marcel tried to catch her and the atmosphere became more tense between the players who came to confront each other.
