Fluminense vs Vitoria
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 6 September 2018
Kick-Off at 23:00 UK / 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Maracana, Rio de Janeiro.
There are just two points separating the two sides ahead of their mid-week round clash on Thursday evening at Estadio Maracana. Tricolor come into it encouraged with a strong performance away at leaders Sao Paulo. They were super close to get the spoils when Anderson Martins’ own goal pushed them in front ten minutes into the second half, but the ten-man Sao Paulo still managed to find the equalizer and save a point in front of the home crowd. Can Fluminense back up the generally fine display against such a strong opponent here when Vitoria come to visit Rio de Janeiro?
Leao da Barra climbed up to 13th place thanks to back-to-back clean sheet wins over Atletico and America Mineiro at home. However, they have massive problems moving the solid home form on travels where they won just 1, drew 2 and lost as many as 8 of 11 ties so far in the season.
Fluminense vs Vitoria: Head-to-head
We should see goals at Maraca according to the most recent H2H trend.
Each of last four head to head matches offered three or more goals with the option of both teams scoring as well.
Fluminense are unbeaten in last five meetings with Vitoria, winning two in the process.
At home, Tricolor won 6, drew 2 and lost 2 of 10 games against Leao da Barra.
Fluminense vs Vitoria: Prediction
Fluminense recovered from a tough 0-3 home loss to Internacional by beating Corinthians and drawing to Sao Paulo. They have to be considered favourites here knowing they’ll be up against the outfit which lost five on the trot on the road failing to score more than once along the way.
The home win is paid at the 1.75 odds, while you can alternatively go for Fluminense’s clean sheet at 2.00. Flu’s top scorer Pedro skipped the mentioned 1-1 draw to Sao Paulo away at Murumbi, but he should be back with the team here against Vitoria. He notched ten goals so far in the season and he is our top suggestion for the difference-maker here. You can back the Brazilian forward to score anytime at 2.10.
