Lineup: Sampaoli determines Flamengo’s starting lineup with Botafogo in training next Saturday – Flamengo – Flamengo news and match

Until then, Flamengo’s holders had focused on just one coaching session, Botafogo

The defeat of Marenga by 8-2, last Wednesday (26), is certainly a thing of the past at Flamengo. The current focus is all on the classics with Botafogo, and Jorge Sampaoli will use Saturday’s training (29) to “beat the hammer” in regards to the Black and Red line-up.

This is because the starting players who played against Marenga only returned to training on the field on Friday (28th) – they made a renewal on Thursday (27th). Thus, Sampaoli will bring together the red and black team from 9 am (Brasilia time) on Saturday (29), at the Ninho do Urubu Training Center.

Jorge Sampaoli’s great doubt is related to the defensive system. This is because, currently, the manager only has Wesley on the right side, and there is potential to save the 19-year-old. In this way, the Argentine is studying the climb of Flamengo with three fixed defenders. In midfield, Arturo Vidal is also expected to start the comparison.

On Friday (28), it is important to note that Sampaoli did not bring together the “main and reserve teams”, leaving the selection of the first 11 in action on the eve of the classic. Although the Argentine has to do another, on Sunday (30), hours before he rolls the ball, the definition of the red and black team will appear, until Saturday (29).

Jorge Sampaoli departs on Sunday (30) reserved for: muscle activation, training plays, set pieces and tactical team coordination. In this way, the coach aims to be “ready” for the Clasico with Botafogo, because he knows the importance of beating the opponent. After all, Flamengo is eighth in Brazil with three points.

On the other hand, Botafogo ranks second in the competition table with six points. In this way, it is important for Flamengo to win the match, with the aim of equalizing the opponent’s points as well as “holding on” to the first place in the Brazilian championship.

Flamengo and Botafogo take the field at 4 pm (Brasilia time) on Sunday (30). The match in question will be played in the MaracanĂ£, valid for the third round of the Brazilian championship.
