Fluminense – Statistics & current form
Fluminense didn’t catch the easiest opponents at the start this season. On the first three match days, the Fluzao met top teams such as Gremio, Palmeiras and Internacional. Accordingly, it was not surprising that Fluminense had a mixed start to the season.
Revenge for the state championship?
As in previous years, the calendar year for Fluminense started with the state championship in Rio de Janeiro. As expected, the Fluzao qualified for the playoffs, where coach Odair Hellmann’s team only lost in the final to their great arch-rivals Flamengo RJ. For eight years, Fluminense stayed away from winning the Campeonato Carioca title.
Since Hellmann’s team has also been eliminated from the Copa Sudamericana, the South American counterpart to the UEFA Europa League, only the Copa do Brasil and Serie A remain for Fluzao in this competitive season. In the latter, Fluminense last won two times in a row.
Marcos Paulo – the team’s offensive star?
Fluminense suffered a 3-1 defeat against FC Sao Paulo last match day. Marcos Paulo, after all the most expensive player in the Fluzao squad, delivered a manageable performance and was replaced in the second half. It remains to be seen whether Hellmann will also bet on the youngster in the derby.
At the Fla-Flu-Derby, Fluminense’s 43-year-old trainer will have to do without Frazan, Dyego, Hudson and Evanilson. There are no further failures to complain about at Fluzao. If Fluminense wins against Flamengo, odds in the odds of the 4.00 mark are paid out for tip 1.

Marcos – Egidio, Claro, Nino, Calegari – Yuri, Dodi – Silva, Nene, Araujo – Marcos Paulo
