Fluminense in danger of relegation, third from bottomo in Brasilerao and with only one win in last ten rounds of Brasilerao. In last round loose at home agaiunst weak CSA, second from bottom.
In Championship they are also quite weak far from home ( 1-1-5 11/17), while Corinthians is undefeated at home where suffered only two goals ( 5-3-0 9/2).
Led by a temporary trainer, Fluminense could have some change tonight. Topscorer Pedro ( 5g) remain out, trainer tried 38 years old scorer Nenè ( 1+2 1g) in palce of third scorer Joao Pedro ( 7+3 3g). captain Digao ( def.4) is in race against time to be fit, hetravelled with the team but not trained during the week, so all will be decided at last moment, Frazan ( def.1+2) could play in its place.
Guests also without Ferraz ( def.7 1g) and various players not included in list for this competition, among them keeper Rodolfo ( 5+1), Yuri ( midf.7+1), Leo melo ( att.3+4),
Corinthians with changes, too, but respect Brailerao match - 2-0 against Botafogo, fourth win in a run of seven matches without defeats in league - return regular keeper Cassio and left back Avelar ( 5 1g), out Everaldo ( att.2+6 1g) and Mendez ( def. 1+1).
Considering latests performances and bad position in Brasilerao, plus some problem in line-up, i see hosts favourite to win here
