Preview of the second leg final in the Brazil Cup
The second leg final in the Brazilian Cup will be played at the Morumbí when Sao Paulo faces Flamengo. The series is 1-0 in favor of those led by Dorival Junior, who took advantage as a visitor despite the absence of James Rodríguez.
The Colombian would not be in the starting XI for this duel, since the coach would choose to make way for players like Wellington, Lucas Moura and Rodrigo Nestor. “I see very good players like James Rodríguez who is recovering in better condition; Alexandre Pato is coming back from a serious injury that kept him off the playing field for a long time. You have to be patient and understand that they will not go back to what they were,” said the DT.
Since his arrival in Brazilian football, James Rodríguez has played six games for São Paulo, four in the Brasileirao and two in the Copa Sudamericana, from which they have already been eliminated. So far the player has accumulated one goal and one assist. In the Brazilian Cup he has been a substitute in the two games the club has played.
For its part, Flamengo will not be able to count on Allan and Guillermo Varela who are injured and are waiting to add De Arrascaeta who has not had minutes in the last week due to an injury.
In the last three games, Jorge Sampaoli’s team has not been able to win since they tied with Goiás, lost against Sao Paulo in the first leg and lost to Brasileira with Athletico
