In a duel between teams at the top of the table, Madureira and Flamengo face each other this Monday, at 9 pm (Brasília time), in Volta Redonda, for the 8th round of the Guanabara Cup. While Rubro-Negro is the current vice-leader with 16 points, Tricolor Suburbano occupies the fifth position, with 11, and is the only undefeated in the Carioca Championship.
The main novelty of Flamengo for the match will be the return of Rodrigo Caio, who recovered from a serious injury in the adductor of the right thigh. The defender has trained with the team in the last few days and should make his debut in the 2021 season. The trend, moreover, is that he will be a starter alongside Willian Arão in the red-black back.
