Flamengo vs Fluminense FC Preview

Flamengo vs Fluminense FC 

Competition – Brazil Serie A

Stadium – Estadio do Maracanã

Date: 12th October 2017

Kick-off time – 21:00 GMT

7th in the table Flamengo will look to get into the top five when they host Fluminense in this game.

Flamengo have gathered 39 points from 26 games after winning 10, drawing 9 and losing 7 of those matches.

They are five points ahead of Athletico-PR and 5 points behind 4th placed Cruzeiro.

This game could take them above Botafogo who have just 1 points more than them.

After winning impressively against Sport Recife and Chapecoense in mid-September, they have slumped to a run of 3 games without a win including their Cup loss to Cruzeiro in the Brazilian Cup.

They will be hoping top scorer P Guerrero can get a couple of goals in this game and help them get back to winning ways again.

Fluminense are disappointingly placed 16th in the league table and they will be desperate to get up the table and avoid a late relegation scare.

They have taken just 31 points from 26 league games so far and have a negative goal difference of -2.

They come into this game off the back of a 1-0 loss at Gremio which was their 4th consecutive loss.

They have scored just two goals in that run of games while conceding 7 and with just one point separating them from the relegation zone they need a win in this game to keep them out of trouble as a loss and a win for other relegation battlers could see them drop into the relegation dogfight with 12 games left to play.
