Fluminense vs Corinthians Prediction
Corinthians remain undefeated in their last 3 h2h meetings with this rival. They are also unbeaten in 5 of their last 7 away league fixtures coming here. The hosts also come here on the back of a 6-game unbeaten run across all competitions.
Meanwhile, Fluminense haven’t beaten Corinthians in their previous 3 league matches. The hosts has not able to net in 5 games this season and that accounts to 36% of the games where they have not been able to find crucial goals.
Considering their previous h2h stats and current form, we feel that an away win or draw seems a realistic option here.
