It has undoubtedly proven to be one of the main national forces of recent years, increasingly conquering its place among the giants of Brazilian football.

The Vila Belmiro club is fighting for second place in the championship this year. Given the size of the investments made by Flamengo, current champion, we can say that this team worked miracles this season. The great coach Sampaoli also has a lot of merit, who managed to implement an attractive and competent style of play, even without big stars in the squad. The team has already guaranteed a place in the Copa Libertadores next year, but it is still in dispute for second place.
