Diego Alves is recovered from a knee injury and is available to coach Domènec Torrent. In the last match, against Athletico-PR, he was on the bench. Outside the field, there is an expectation for its renewal: after an agreement is forwarded, the board trims the last internal edges in order to conclude the deal.
Hugo has started in 10 of the last 11 matches for Flamengo. During this period, he stood out for his defenses. Against Athletico, he reappeared and saved Walter’s penalty.
Flamengo returns to the field this Sunday, against São Paulo, for the 19th round of the Brazilian Championship. The departure is scheduled for 16h (Brasília), at Maracanã.
