Pick: Internacional AH +0,5 @ 1.60 in Betfair / Result: (3-0)
This will be the first true test to the new Flamengo trained by Wanderlei Luxemburgo. The victory over Atletico Goianiense and draw against Avai have yet to measure exactly what changes the coach can implement on the team. Despite the last two good results the danger of relegation still haunts the team that occupies the fourteenth place with 34 points.
Playing at home the team has 4 wins, 8 draws and 2 losses with a record of 17 goals scored and 14 conceded. For this match Williams and Leonardo Moura are unavailable, Maldonado returns to the starting eleven.

International‘s chances of winning the title have slightly decreased after the defeat against Santos. But depending on a combination of results the team can get out of this round with a 4 points diference to Cruzeiro. To try to breathe Roth will have the return of several important starters such as D’Alessandro, Giuliano, Wilson Matias and Alecssandro. The only unavailable player from the usual starters is Guinazu who is suspended.

Following the martyrdom of the Rio’s clubs in with the closing of Maracana, this game will be at Engenhão. I believe that Inter may surprise Flamengo in Rio. For everything the teams showed this season International reaches this match with more credentials. Flamengo is on their fourth coach this year, a lot of changes on the team, and continues with a football without thrill. Inter has the return of key players, is a experienced and cold team and making their last push for the title they must give their best in this game. I believe the best team will win here.
