Flamengo will be hard pressed to save Pedro for the derby match against Fluminense on Saturday. The striker still feels pain in his right knee, did not go to the field in training on Friday, and his tendency is not to play until he is 100% in the Atlético-PR duel, next Wednesday, against the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey.

His equalizer against Atletico in the first game, last Wednesday, Pedro is no longer fully in position to duel in Curitiba. The striker is still suffering from knee pain since the win over Juventus. He was out of the match against Cuiaba, for example.

Besides Pedro, coach Renato Gaucho will also not be able to count on Gabigol, who twisted his right ankle against Atletico. The couple join other embezzlers: Philip Luis (arrested), David Luiz, Bruno Henrique and Arascaeta (medical department).

As for the attack, Renato has as an immediate option Vitor Gabriel, who even went against Cuiaba. Other alternatives are Vitinho or Kenedy, as they work in a more advanced way. On the right flank, Mathiosinho should get a chance.

The potential Flamengo line-up to face Fluminense is as follows: Diego Alves, Mathuzinho, Rodrigo Caillou, Leo Pereira and René; Willian Arau, Thiago Maia, Everton Ribeiro, Andreas and Michael; Vetino (Kennedy or Vitor Gabriel).

Flamengo and Fluminense meet at 7 pm (GMT) in the Maracana. The match is valid for the 28th round of the Brazilian Championship.
