The former Liverpool goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri has said that playing against Flamengo is extremely tough at all times during the season, but it is especially tough now because they will be coming on the back of two morale boosting victories against Atlético GO and Atlético Mineiro.
Atlético Mineiro have been viewed as one of the teams capable of challenging for the title due to the incredible form of the former Barcelona superstar Ronaldinho. However, Flamengo managed to beat them 2-1 in the last match. This will make them the favourite to win the match against Fluminense especially given that this match is at home.
Hence, the Fluminense goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri has said that his teammates should have the utmost concentration when it comes to playing against Flamengo. Fluminense have been top of the table for quite a while, while the victory for Flamengo in the last match against Atlético Mineiro helped them extended the lead at the top of the table to 6 points. Despite the team being the favourites to win the title this season, Diego Cavalieri has warned that they should not take Flamengo lightly. Diego Cavalieri has highlighted the presence of Vagner Love as one of the main reasons to take Flamengo as one of the tough teams.
“I want to analyze the team Flamengo, which will probably be as it always was. Always a tough game complicated. A game of this size that we can decide our ways. Victory We know the need for both of us, when for them. It’s always difficult to face them, mainly because it is a great club. We know today that has players who can make a difference. Always very difficult. I have not seen those who were out, but they must have suffered a little bit,” said Diego Cavalieri.
