Fluminense receives Red Bull Bragantino, this Sunday (4), at Maracanã, at 4 pm (Brasília time). The teams arrive at different times for the duel for the ninth round of the Brasileirão. While Tricolor has been without victories and goals for five games, the Paulistas have been undefeated for seven duels. The winner of the match could enter the G4 depending on a combination of results.
Where to watch Fluminense vs RB Bragantino
The match will be broadcast by Globo, on open TV from 3:40 pm, in addition to the Premiere subscription channel, from 3 pm.
How does Fluminense arrive?
The Laranjeiras team is experiencing its worst moment of the season. That’s because the team comes from five games without winning and without scoring, counting the Brasileirão, Libertadores and Copa do Brasil. Including, suffering elimination in the national knockout, after setback to the archrival by 2 to 0, last Thursday (01). In this period, by the way, Fluminense comes from four consecutive defeats.
In Serie A, Tricolor is in ninth place with 13 points. If it manages to win a triumph over Massa Bruta, the team from Rio can return to the classification zone for Libertadores. For this, therefore, you need to root for a stumbling block by Flamengo and Grêmio, in addition to a tie between Atlético and Cruzeiro in the Minas Gerais classic.
Coach Fernando Diniz will count on the return of midfielder Felipe Melo. He was left out of Fla-Flu for the Copa do Brasil, after receiving a red card in the first leg. On the other hand, the commander will not have left-back Marcelo available, due to a muscle injury in the right calf. Other absences due to injury are defensive midfielder Alexsander, left-back Jorge, forwards Keno and Marrony.
How does RB Bragantino arrive
Massa Bruta accumulates an unbeaten record of seven matches in the Brasileirão and Sul-Americana. The Bragança team, incidentally, won their last three matches. In Serie A, the team from São Paulo occupies the tenth place, with the same 13 points.
Coach Pedro Caixinha will have problems climbing the team. After all, he has eight embezzlements that are in the medical department. In this case, defenders Léo Ortiz, Lucas Cunha and Natan, left-back Luan Cândido, midfielders Raul and Bruninho, as well as forwards Laquintana and Talisson. Another casualty is defender Kevin Lomónaco, who has been removed from the team, as he was cited as a suspect for involvement in the match-fixing scheme.
