Many athletes have been promoted to the professional ranks, others are also traded and we continue to deliver impressive results in the category, see these last few years. In these 6 years we reached at least the semi-final of the Brazilian Championship, but then there is also the final of the Copa do Brasil, the final of the State Championship, Brazilian titles, and now the Libertadores title. And even so, Flamengo's base continues to place the athlete in the professional ranks with a very aligned training process, we continue to deliver a very competitive team in the under-20s and that is what we believe. That's what we're going to continue thinking about doing. In other words, there is zero pressure on us in the competition and we know our responsibility”, said Mario, who concluded by talking about preparation.


“Our preparation was good, we returned from Libertadores on 3/18, and we managed to recover some players who were very worn out from there. Unfortunately, we lost Caio to a muscle injury. But we promote some players. We have new athletes arriving, players that we recruited in the Copa São Paulo, players that our recruitment department also brought into the club. Ultimately, we achieved a greater balance for our team, while also promoting some boys. Rayan (Lucas) and Lorran are already training directly with the professional, as well as other boys. Lorran was even involved in the professional's Libertadores debut, and Rayan is with us here to play the first game. So, our preparation was smooth, the activities leading up to the game were also smooth. We managed to do some training here at the Atlético Goianiense training center to adjust some things in the game plan and let's see how the boys will do. Let's take advantage of their good moment and try to have a great game”, he added.
