Fluminense will have a nice chance to keep the good form going and see off Bahia in the 12th round of Brasilierao this weekend when they travel to Arena Fonte Nova.
The victory would see the visitors joining the top six teams in the standings which is enough of a motivation for Abel Braga and his men.
The league’s newcomers showed a promising form at the start of the season, but the last couple of weeks confirmed their lack of potential to stay competitive in the top flight of the Brazilian football.
The head coach Jorginho is currently going through a tough period as his side is winless in last six Serie A fixtures.
