How to watch Flamengo vs Sao Paulo on US TV

This weekend's biggest game sees Flamengo take on Sao Paulo on Saturday.

Flamengo is heavily involved in the title race and is level on points with league-leaders Internacional after 18 games.

Sao Paulo currently sits in fifth place, eight points behind the leaders, but has three games in hand on Internacional and Flamengo.

A top four finish is important as it guarantees automatic qualification for the 2021 Copa Libertadores Group Stage, while teams in fifth and sixth have to enter at the second qualifying stage.

Flamengo vs Sao Paulo team news and preview

Last season's champions Flamengo could only draw 2-2 with Internacional last weekend and likely needs to win against Sao Paulo to stay level on points with its title rivals.

Flamego has played nine games in the last four weeks, so could decide to rotate or rest players against Sao Paulo.

Both Willian Arao and Thiago Maia need to be replaced in the starting XI as they each picked up a booking last time out and will miss this weekend through suspension.

On-loan forward Pedro Rocha is back in contention following an injury, while Gabigol has returned to training after missing a month with a sprained ankle.

Sao Paulo had eight players absent for their Copa Sudamericana game with Lanus, but hopes captain Hernanes could be passed fit this weekend.

Hernanes trained properly for the first time since picking up an injury in September, but defender Igor Vinicius is not expected to play despite restarting training.
