Vasco RJ vs Flamengo RJ by JerryDrake
VASCO DA GAMA - FLAMENGO
Flamengo are not yet qualified to next Libertadores stage but first they have to play the first leg of the Carioca finals with Vasco against which they are undefeated in the last 7 meetings.
The first part of the Carioca championship finishes with the Guanabara Cup. Flamengo and Vasco are the team which won most titles: Flamengo 19, Vasco 11. Flamengo won 3 titles out of the last 7 editions, Vasco won their last cup in 2003. Since then Vasco played and lost three finals.
As Flamengo will have to play in the Libertadores Vasco have a good opportunity to start winning again in the State of Rio de Janeiro.
Flamengo can play for two draws in the double final because they made more points in the regular season. For this reason Vasco must win tonight.
Some players of Flamengo are tired because of the game played in Guayaquil and the travel to Ecuador and back and the coach stated that he will have to let them have a rest and think of the Libertadores game: „This is only the first final, it is not decisive“. It is not clear yet which players will not play except the injured ones which I wrote in the list.
