Match Preview & Team News

The hosts are sitting in 8th place, and they are six points behind the leading Internacional. After a series of good results and three victories in a row, Fluminense failed to win on the last two occasions. They missed the chance to win against Atletico Goianense and fell to a 3:1 defeat away to Sao Paulo. Nene and the lads are doing a decent job in front of the oppositions’ goal, however, their defense should have been tighter. Fluminense has already played four games at their pitch and still haven’t suffered a defeat.

Flamengo is a defending champion in the Serie A, while the visitors also won the Copa Libertadores. Their squad is the most powerful in entire South America, and they are top favorites for lifting both trophies again. However, Flamengo didn’t enjoy a good start of the campaign as they lost in two opening rounds. Nevertheless, Domenec Torrent managed to consolidate his team, and the away side started to improve its form. Gabriel Barbosa and the lads tied three wins in a row, while the visitors haven’t lost in the last six matches. They managed to climb to the 5th place being just three points away from the top spot. However, this is going to be a tough challenge, and Fla wants to continue their good run.
