In all recent games, whatever the result, one issue predominates for Flamengo: the calendar. The club, which is in a war with the CBF, constantly talks about how much it is being harmed by the Copa América period, but it will have important days ahead. Tite will finally get what he asks for so much: more rest and training. End of the marathon

Flamengo will only play again on Thursday, against Fortaleza, in the Brazilian Championship. The club wanted more time between matches already played against Cuiabá and Atlético-MG in the last rounds, but was unable to plead with the CBF for a change to Sunday or Monday.


The team, at least, will have a day off this Sunday. With the sequence of several games in a few days, the group had not been able to have a free day since the defeat of Vasco, which took place on June 2nd. After the duel with Fortaleza, there are nine days until the next match. As the clash with Internacional was postponed, Fla will have a margin until they travel to Brasília to face Criciúma.

On the 20th, for the 18th round, the squad will already be complete. The Uruguayans Arrascaeta, Viña, Varela and De la Cruz continue in the Copa América and return to Brazil between the 13th and 15th. Tite, however, will need to assess the condition of each one to find out if they can start as starters or if they need rest. Chilean Pulgar, for example, returned to the bench and only started in the next game.



The "rest" could be fundamental in this marathon. Flamengo hopes to empty the medical department soon and understands that the injuries are the result of this wear and tear. Bruno Henrique was the latest bad news with a sprain. The player will still undergo additional tests between this Sunday and Monday. For Thursday's game, his presence is unlikely — in the following games, it will depend on developments.

Fla may make a comeback. Igor Jesus is already training with the squad and has a chance to return to the squad in the next round. Everton Cebolinha is in the transition phase with physiotherapy: after that, the attacker will still undergo physical preparation before joining his teammates — there is an estimate that he could return against Criciúma.

" I'm going to talk a little [in the sphere] guys. I went to sleep yesterday. The first day after the game you don't rest, you have the energy. I don't know if, with Bruno Henrique being clean, he can get out of contact and not get hurt. When there are excessive games, the propensity for an athlete to get injured is much greater. If the athletes' union said that 66 hours is the minimum time [between one match and another], they are wrong too. I don't know if that could have influenced him getting hurt."

Flamengo beat Vitória 2-1 last Wednesday (24), at Barradão, and took second place in the Brasileirão. Despite the result, the performance of the Rio team was criticized by former player Júnior. Commentator of the game on Globo, the club's idol pointed out a defensive problem in Tite's team.

- This victory cannot mask what we saw today. A team that wants to fight for the title has to behave differently. Flamengo has a problem with recovery when they lose the ball in front or on a counterattack. That's exactly what happened in Vitória's goal - commented Júnior.


Flamengo opened the scoring with a great goal from Arrascaeta in the final stretch of the first half. In the second stage, Everaldo left everything the same, and striker Carlinhos gave the Rio team the victory in the last minutes of the game. With the result, Tite's team reached 37 points, three less than the leader Botafogo.


It is worth remembering that Flamengo has one game less, as they have not yet played in the 17th round of the Brasileirão, against Internacional.

The transfer market remains busy and, as a result, some Flamengo players appear as possible options for other clubs. One of these athletes is goalkeeper Matheus Cunha. At the moment, the red-and-black archer is in the sights of Persepolis FC, from Iran.

According to the portal 'Transfermarkt', Matheus Cunha has his name linked to the Iran team. However, it is worth highlighting that, so far, Persepolis FC only shows interest in the athlete and has not yet made any type of official proposal to Flamengo.


MATHEUS CUNHA AT FLAMENGO

At the moment, Matheus Cunha is the Agustín Rossi's 'shadow' in Flamengo's goal. In the Brazilian Championship and Libertadores games, coach Tite has used the Argentine as a starter. However, in clashes in the Copa do Brasil, the commander has given opportunities to the number 25.

In the national knockout stage, in fact, it was the last time that Matheus Cunha played for Flamengo. On that occasion, on May 22nd, the goalkeeper participated in the red-and-black victory in the return game over Amazonas, with a score of 1-0. In the first leg, which took place on May 1st, the archer was in the starting line-up. in Mengo's goal.


MATHEUS CUNHA IN FLAMENGO'S NEXT GAME

With Matheus Cunha available, Flamengo returns to the field this Sunday to face Atlético -Go, for the 20th round of the Brasileirão. The match takes place at 4pm (Brasília time), at Maracanã.

Flamengo entered the field on Wednesday night (24), trying to get closer to the leadership of the Brasileirão. In a game of opposite moments, Fla won 2-1, with goals from Arrascaeta and Carlinhos. The decisive goal of the match came in extra time in the second half, and striker Gabigol was once again instrumental in a 'lights out' move.

In the previous round, Gabigol came off the bench and, at 43 minutes into the complementary stage, he took the penalty that defined the red and black victory against Criciúma. Previously, in the game against Vitória, the number 99 gave a beautiful assist to Carlinhos, who invaded the area and scored a beautiful goal to guarantee three more points for Fla. Therefore, it can be said that Gabi was a fundamental player in the last six points that Mengo won.


SEARCH FOR SPACE

Formerly the protagonist of Flamengo, today Gabigol is trying to regain space in the team. Involved in punishment for fraud in an anti-doping test and still experiencing a dispute over contract renewal, Gabi publicly demanded more minutes on the field.

FIGHT FOR THE LEADERSHIP OF BRASILEIRÃO

With the triumph in the 19th round, Flamengo reached the mark of 37 points in the Brazilian Championship. With this, the team returns to the direct fight for leadership of the competition. This is because Botafogo, which is currently in first place, has 40 points and one game more than Rubro-Negro. This way, if Fla wins the delayed game, it has a chance to take the lead.

Now, Flamengo's next commitment will be close to the fans. After all, on Sunday (28), Mais Querido faces Atlético-GO, at Maracanã. Until then, Gabigol will have three days of training to try to convince Tite that he deserves more minutes on the field
