Flamengo puts the pieces together to save the rest of the season. Although the Brazilian title is still possible in mathematics, internally threw the club in the towel, but there is still a direct place in Libertadoresna to conquer. Not enough shed of the player, coach Dorival Junior has to break his head to set up the team, for the first time full of concealment under his direction.
Lucas Paquetá, Willian Aaron and Renê are suspended. With that, after six matches, Dorival must change the formation. It worked well in a positive succession of victories, but fell in return in the last three games – two of them direct confrontations in Brasileirão. In addition to the defeat of Botafogo, on Saturday, there were two moves (against São Paulo and Palmeiras). For the confrontation of Thursday against Santos, three advance of his titular.

"There are three important players, of course, it's worrying. It's natural that they should be missing, but we need to find solutions within the group." Flamengo has an excellent casting. "We have good options." Everyone is prepared, and I have no doubt that whoever enters will be able to represent Flamengo. We have a team built against Santos, says Dorival, without a clue of the chosen ones.

Trauco (Peruvian national team)
Geuvânio, injured, and Trauco, with the Peruvian national team and Lincoln, with the team under 20, consume list of problems, even if they are not headlines. The page, however, would be the natural alternative for the Rene wave. On Tuesday, Dorival is expected to start sketching the team, in training at 4:00 pm, in Urubu's Nest.
Who goes to Paquetás place?
Huaman's main player in Flamengo and top scorer of the team in Brasileirão, Paquetá will be out for the first time since Dorival landed in Gávea in late September. Chance for Diego to start as an appetizer for the first time during the coach's command.

That would be the natural option, but the ruin of Willian Arão could make Diego take the place of the wheel, a bit more retreated. In that case, Marlos Moreno would enter the team, with Vitinho playing more centralized. It's a possible but unlikely line-up, because Dorival would have to cheat with the location of several players.
Who enters Aaron's wave?
Famous by Dorival last week, Rômulo is a favorite for the position. It would be the first major opportunity for the flyer, which only played a few minutes with Fla-Flu with Dorival.

He disputed position with Paraguay's Piris da Motta. In this formation, Cuellar would play a little more advanced to help in the creation. The young Jean Lucas would be another option, but he has not been used and rises like an underdog.

Who enters the Rene?
Most likely, Dorival Junior improves to Pará on the left, with Rodinei returning to the starting line-up. The shirt 2 enjoys the coach and has gone through the last two games.
One possibility would be to use Michael, the left rear of the U-20. However, in a few recent matches, the young man did not train with professionals in the other, which virtually could not be used in the fifth between the holders.

A third possibility, even more distant, would be to use the team with three defenders. After the training of this second, Rhodolfo spoke to the Technical Committee.
