Bom dia, and welcome to our coverage of one of the world's biggest derbies. It's Fla-Flu, and it's live!

Yep, so it's derby day in Rio, there are 12 games left for both sides so plenty to play for. Flamengo are 7th, a win here would point them within a point of a Libertadores qualifying spot, while Flu are fifth bottom, one point clear of a relegation trapdoor that still concerns everyone up to Flamengo

It's a public holiday in Brazil so there has been a decent afternoon of football with four Serie A games. Here are the results Corinthians 3-1 Coritiba Atletico Mineiro 1-0 Sao Paulo Avai 1-2 Vasco da Gama Grêmio 0-1 Cruzeiro As well as the big derby, Ponte Preta v Santos and Vitória v Sport are also being played in 15 minutes

Fluminense will kick us off! 0-0 (1)

Parà has the first chance of the game, big header that is from the corner but while it has the power, it doesn't have the precision. 0-0 (4)

And now Flu get their first crack, think it was Scarpa who shot from 25/30 yards out. Comfortableish save for Diego Alves though. 0-0 (6)

And Diego Alves called into action again, this time Marcos Junior riding a challenge before forcing a save. 0-0 (7)

Marcio Araujo with the foul, Scrarpa fouled and will take the free kick, the ball is eventually cleared. 0-0 (10)

Trying to work out if the crowd is big or not. Loads of empty seats, but it is being played at the Maracana. 0-0 (13)
