The victory was built very calmly, even though the main players entered the field for the first time after the end of the pre-season.
In the next round, the leaders of the Guanabara Cup will face Madureira on Monday (5), at 9pm. The departure should be at Maracanã, but there is still no confirmation due to the possibility of expanding sanitary restrictions.
“Arrascaneta” commands Fla and scores
Flamengo played a good game in Volta Redonda and there was no performance that was out of place. Dragging, however, was left. In the middle and on both sides of the field, the Uruguayan appeared with good passes and scored a great goal after giving a dribble under the legs of the defender from Bangkok.
Diego Alves back
Back after recovering from a thigh injury, a bruise that took him out of the final stretch of the Brazilian’s octa campaign, goalkeeper Diego Alves was just a spectator on the field. Had it not been for a lacking defense charged by Marcelo Mattos, shirt number 1 would not have had any work.
Flamengo takes over the match
With a lot of movement, Fla’s starters took the first test of the current season seriously. Against a closed rival, Rubro-Negro smashed Bangu in his defense field and added up lost chances. Ceni’s team did not let the alvirrubros breathe and took over the game with a lot of mobility and a strong pace.
Bangu bets on the boom
With five men posted on the defensive line, Bangu tried to block the entrance to his area and force Fla to use the sides to try to penetrate. The defensive strategy even worked reasonably well, but Alvirrubro was unable to build a move that even threatened Diego Alves. After Flamengo’s first goal, the team tried to get out a little bit more, but it took no danger.
Against a team that put all players behind the ball line, Rubro-Negro used the aerial ball as a constant weapon in the match. Bruno Henrique opened the scoring with a header, but the team had already concluded on other occasions from the top and brought danger to goalkeeper Paulo Henrique.
At 47 of the initial stage, Diego crossed and Bruno Henrique headed for the goal. At 21 of the final stage, Arrascaeta made a beautiful cut in the defender and shot low to enlarge. At 39, Gabigol kicked in the angle and closed the account.
Despite the games marathon in Volta Redonda, Raulino de Oliveira’s pitch was in good condition and was not an “opponent” for both teams.
On the day that the military coup of 1964 is remembered, Flamengo did not let the date go by and left a message in favor of democracy on their social networks.
