The team led by coach Dorival Júnior arrives for this duel without major ambitions, considering that the team has already mathematically ensured its permanence in the national elite and has also guaranteed a direct place in the group stage of the next edition of the Copa Libertadores after winning the unprecedented title of the Brazilian Cup.
However, Tricolor from São Paulo wants to say goodbye to its fans in 2023 in the most honorable way possible, aiming to rediscover the path to victory after a bad result in the last round.
However, the São Paulo team will have to deal with the absences of Galoppo, Calleri, Igor Vinícius, João Moreira and Marcos Paulo, who are injured and are certain absences for this round.
In the last round, the team from São Paulo visited Atlético-MG in Belo Horizonte and despite showing commendable intensity in their performance, even wasting good scoring opportunities, the team was unable to avoid defeat by the score of 2-1 to the Atleticans, in a match that followed the 1-0 victory over Bahia, a round earlier.
Only 1 victory, 2 draws and 2 defeats were recorded in the last 5 official matches of the season, beating Bahia, drawing with Santos and Cuiabá, in addition to losing to Atlético-MG and also to Fluminense.

There were 12 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats in the 18 times the São Paulo team entered the field as home team in this edition of the Brasileirão, totaling 28 goals scored and 13 conceded.
While on the other side is the Flamengo team, which will reunite with its former coach Dorival Júnior, with whom they were very successful in winning the Libertadores and the Copa do Brasil last season.
Rubro-negro from Rio has faced many difficulties since the beginning of 2023, when it was still led by Vitor Pereira and, then, Argentine Jorge Sampaoli also failed in an attempt to make the Flamengo team improve its performance.
The Cariocas have the experienced Tite in their current command, since the former coach of the Brazilian team agreed to bring forward his vacation to take over the red-and-black team, which continues to need to score to maintain its place in the G-4 of the competition.
In the last round, Flamengo did well by defeating Cuiabá in front of their fans by the score of 2-1, at Maracanã and wants to repeat the good performance to win this Wednesday.

There were 3 wins, 1 draw and only 1 defeat in the last 5 official matches of the season. During this period they beat Cuiabá, América-MG and also Red Bull Bragantino, in addition to drawing with Fluminense and losing to Atlético-MG.
Playing as a visitor, the Flamengo team recorded a campaign with 9 wins, 4 draws and 5 defeats in the 18 games played in the Brasileirão, totaling 30 goals scored and 25 conceded.
Owner of the best campaign as a visitor in the competition, the Flamengo team seeks to maintain this position, as they need victory to confirm their place in the group stage of the next edition of the Copa Libertadores and any stumble could end up costing them dearly in the event of victories of its other competitors.
As São Paulo no longer has any great ambitions for this season, the expectation is that Flamengo, owner of a more valuable and numerous squad, will be able to stand out to achieve their main objective.
