Date: Wednesday, 7th June 2017
Kick off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Fluminense are looking to back up the weekend’s win over Vitoria and maintain their fine start in the new Serie A campaign.
Flu will host Atletico PR in their second consecutive fixture at Maracana this Tuesday.
Abel Braga can be satisfied with the start of his first season in the top flight of the Brazilian football as the head coach of Fluminense.
The team made an upset by seeing off Atletico Mineiro 1-2 on the road in the second round.
The third match saw them struggling at the back to concede three in a narrow 3-2 defeat to the league’s newcomers Vasco da Gama , but they quickly returned on the winning ways by beating Vitoria this Saturday.
The story is completely opposite with the visitors who collected no more than a single point from the opening four matches.
Eduardo Baptista is desperate to turn the course of the season as he might well be the first man to lose his job in this term of Serie A.
Atletico showed plenty of holes in the defense in the first round when they allowed as many as six in a demolishing loss to Bahia and they are yet to improve on there.
Fluminense vs Atletico Paranaense: Head to head
Flu lead the head to head tie by six wins, but they have been winless in last two clashes with Atletico.
None of the last five H2H meetings between the two sides offered three or more goals, but the team’s current form suggests the ending of such a trend.
Fluminense vs Atletico Paranaense: Prediction
We do expect to see an open match full of goals. Each of the four games the hosts played at the start of the season saw both teams scoring.
Hurricane have huge issues at the back which is certainly something Flu is capable of exploiting with their impressive home form at the start of the new season.
