A few uneventful minutes missing at the end. //
A win by Flamengo will practically decide the Champion of the 1979 Rio de Janeiro State Championship. Flamengo is the leader of the final phase and Vasco is the 2nd place. The "Mengo" will play without Zico, but will count on the young Tita, a future Brazilian legend, to wear the number 10 and lead a team with Brazilian football icons like Júnior, Carpegiani and Adílio. The "Vascão" will rely on Roberto "Dinamite", the top goalscorer of the Brazilian National Championship of all time, Leão, a WC and Brazilian legend, Marco Antônio, a 1970 Brazil national team member, and the maestro Zé Mário.
