Flamengo received a very hard blow before facing Barcelona of Ecuador in the Copa Libertadores de América. Another one after the crushing defeat suffered against Independiente del Valle in the same country. The “Mengao” reported that six of their footballers gave positive to the tests to which they were subjected, although “All are asymptomatic, isolated and supervised by the medical team”.

In any case, despite the positive news regarding the health of each one, the six will be low for the Spanish Doménec Torrent, questioned after the huge fall against the current champion of the South American Cup. According Globe Sports, the infected are Bruno Henrique, Michael, Matheuzinho, Diego, Filipe Luís and Mauricio Isla.
In that sense, the “Mengao” took letters so that the Catalan DT had more alternatives to visit the Guayaquil residents. He summoned four footballers, who traveled with the negative result in hand to Ecuadorian soil. Joao Lucas, a 22-year-old right back, will occupy the “Huaso” square. Nathan, Guilherme Bala and Rodrigo Muniz they complete the payroll.
