Reigning Copa do Brasil champions Atletico Mineiro will look to preserve their lead when they travel to Flamengo for the second leg of their last-16 tie on Thursday at 1.30am (UK time).
The current Brazilian title-holders secured a 2-1 win in the first leg last month through goals from Hulk and Ademir, but Flamengo gave themselves a slither of hope 10 minutes from the final whistle after Lazaro struck to reduce the deficit, blowing this contest wide open.

Flamengo team news
Recently-appointed Dorival Junior doesn’t have too many injury concerns, but he will be more worried about the tactical chalk board after losing successive games to Atletico Mineiro last month in the league and this competition. The two sides didn’t differ too much in terms of personnel, with Gabriel Barbosa leading the line, flanked by new recruit Everton, who recently returned to his homeland after a spell at Benfica, and Giorgian De Arrascaeta also dovetailing in attack. Junior is unlikely to deviate too much from that set-up, but the likes of Vitinho and Diego will be itching for minutes.
Atletico Mineiro team news
Antonio Mohamed is also unlikely to shuffle the pack, with his frontline very much set in stone. For both wins against Flamengo, he deployed a 4-2-3-1 which saw captain Hulk take on the No. 9 berth, scoring and assisted twice over the two games, while former QPR loanee Eduardo Vargas occupied the right flank and Keno took on the left, with Nacho Fernandez playing ‘in the hole’. It’s a tried-and-tested system that has thus far served him well.
