Flamengo tries to change the key and focus on Brazil’s Cup, where he will face Atlético-MG. In the Brasileirão, the red-black team lost by 2 x 0 and nobody managed to play well. The crowd protested a lot on the web and wants to see another stance on the field tomorrow (22), at Mineirão. In 3 games, the team led by Dorival lost two and won another.

This Tuesday (21), journalist Julia Malak brought backstage information about the eventual lineup of Mengão, which may have two novelties: the entry of Aaron in the middle of the field and Filipe Luís returning to the title. Thus, Ayrton Lucas and Vitinho come out of the starting 11.

With these news, Mengão should enter the field with: Diego Alves (Santos); Matheuzinho, Pablo, Rodrigo Caio and Filipe Luís; João Gomes, Andreas Pereira, Arão, Everton Ribeiro and Arrascaeta; gabigol.

Flamengo fans did not like these two possible changes at all because they understand that both players (Arão and Filipe Luís) are not performing something productive to return to the team. Dorival Junior tries to find a solution to get a good result away from home and, thus, decide in Maracanã.

Flamengo haven’t beaten Atlético in Belo Horizonte since 2018, when Vinicius Júnior scored a beautiful goal at Independência. At the time, Rubro-Negro was coached by Barbieri and was leading the Brasileirão. With Vini’s departure, the team lost momentum and ended up losing the national title.
