In the second classico (derby game) of the year, Rio giants Flamengo take on Vasco da Gama for the first round of the traditional bragging and baiting that lasts until the last kick of the national championships in December. This, however, is for the first leg of the state championship, the Taça Guanabara, and while it might not draw some of the huge crowds of the latter stages, the first game between these two sides is always a hotly contested affair. A taxi from Centro will cost around R$40, trains also run from Central Station for the hardier fans.
