Fluminense 1-0 Palmeiras – no excuses

Mano Menezes lined up an alternative starting-eleven against Fluminense. Who of our non-regulars would grasp the opportunity to show willingness to remain in 2020? Only Mayke. Another terribly lame performance from a team that couldn’t be bothered to push Fluminense down the relegation ladder, nor overtake Santos – who lost 2-1 to Fortaleza – for second place. Shame on you!

Weverton; Mayke, Luan, Vitor Hugo and Vitor Luiz; Thiago Santos, Matheus Fernandes and Raphael Veiga (Lucas Lima); Hyoran (Dudu), Willian (Gabriel Veron) and Luiz Adriano.

Everything else.

Next challenge
There are unfortunately another three rounds to go. Flamengo await at the Allianz Parque on Sunday, 1 December. Unless he want’s to start looking for job elsewhere, Mano Menezes better show he retains the capacity to influence the squad at least emotionally.
