A win in this match would send Flamengo through to the semi-finals of the championship against Atlético Mineiro. The Mengão, without Jorginho, would play against a very disciplined and hardworking Santa Cruz team - the "Tricolor Pernambucano" had its golden age in the 1970s, when "Santinha" was 4th place in the 1975 Brazilian National First Division and featured players like Givanildo Oliveira (who played for the Seleção), Ramón, top goalscorer of the 1973 Brazilian National First Divison and, later in that decade, Nunes. The highlights of the 1987 Santa Cruz, champions of the Pernambuco State Championship that year, were Gilson Gênio, left wing of the "Máquina Tricolor" in 1975/1976 (one of the greatest Fluminense squads ever), the good defender Lula and the good defensive midfielder Zé do Carmo, an important player for Vasco in the late 1980s/early 1990s and who played for the Seleção 3 times.
