– I think it’s bizarre what will happen in this last round. All games worth anything today happen at 21:10. But there’s a fundamental game, Vasco’s, which will only happen tomorrow. With everyone fighting for a vacancy, Vasco will enter the field already knowing exactly what they need. This is an aberration, an absurdity,” he said.

Rizek explained that the decision was made due to the possible risk of holding two games simultaneously in the capital of Rio de Janeiro, one of them being the classic between Flamengo and Fluminense. Still, the journalist was unhappy with the timing. The program’s bench even discussed other possibilities, such as holding one of the matches outside Rio de Janeiro.

the classic between Flamengo and Fluminense worth the title of the Guanabara Cup. In case of a tricolor defeat, Vasco can still finish the championship in second place. In the fight for the last spot for the semifinals, Botafogo and Volta Redonda enter the field at the same time. Alvinegro duels with Portuguesa, while Voltaço faces Boavista.
