This match against Cabofriense will mark the debut of Ricardo Drubscky as head coach of Fluminense.
The replacement of Cristovao Borges with 53-year-old Drubscky was caused by the poor form of the home team in the previous two rounds, as Fluminense won only one point against Macae (0-1 / away) and Tigres (1-1 / home) and is now outside top 4, four points behind the fourth team in the standings (Vasco da Gama).
There are only four rounds until the end of the regular season in Campeonato Carioca and the hosts simply can’t afford to make more mistakes if they want to play at the semi-finals of the tournament.
In the point of fact, Fluminense is probably the best team from Rio de Janeiro in terms of deepness of the squad, individual qualities of the players and experience, while the fact that this team is not involved in any other tournament in this moment is definitely additional advantage for the hosts.
Guilherme Mattis (d / 2+0), Ronan (d / 0+0) and Martinuccio (m / 0+0) are still injured and will miss this match against Cabofriense, but the guests have much bigger problems with injured players in this moment: three important players in defense and in the midfielder in the face of Victor Silva (def.), Teti (midf.) and Jadson (midf.), as well as the leading scorer of the team Marco Aurelio (forw. / 3 goals).
Besides other things, Cabofriense is in really weak form lately, having won only one point in six games in March (0-1-5 2/9) and not a single point from the last four games in the tournament against Tigres (0-1 / away), Macae (1-2 / away), Madureira (0-3 / home) and Botafogo (0-1 / home).
Three points from this match are crucial for Fluminense and I think that the debut of the new head coach will have positive effect over the home team.
