Domingos Antônio da Guia (born in Rio de Janeiro, November 19, 1912 – died in Rio, May 18, 2000), nicknamed "the Divine Master" was a Brazilian footballer. He is regarded as one of the greatest players in Flamengo and Corinthians history, as well as the all time best Brazilian defender.

He quickly rose to fame as one of Bangu's key players (central defender) between 1929–1932. After Bangu, Domingos moved to Uruguay's Nacional de Montevideo for a season, before brief periods at Vasco da Gama (Brazil), Boca Juniors (Argentina) and then finding a home at Rio giants Flamengo (1937–1943). A brief spell at Corinthians left Domingos to return to Bangu where he stay until he retired in 1948.

Domingos also enjoyed a successful international career, getting 23 caps for Brazil. He played in four matches for Brazil in the 1938 FIFA World Cup finals. [1]

His son Ademir da Guia played for Bangu and São Paulo.
