On Wednesday, Flamengo will begin their 2022 season when they take on Portuguesa for their first game of the Campeonato Carioca.

Manager Fábio Matias, who commands the Flamengo U-20 team, will be in charge of Flamengo’s alternative team as the first-team players are still on vacation.

Flamengo and Portuguesa have faced one another a total of 75 times in their storied history, with Flamengo enjoying a very dominant record of 68 wins, four draws, and three defeats.

Portuguesa earned one of their few results against Flamengo last year, when the two teams drew 2-2 with Pedro scoring a brace.
