Sao Paulo vs Fluminense
Brasileiro Serie A
Sunday, 25th June 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo.
Can Sao Paulo see an end to their crisis and snatch their first victory in five matches this weekend when they host Fluminense at Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo?
Tricolors were off to a strong start in the new Serie A season, but the team’s form has seen somewhat of a slide in the last couple of weeks.
In Rogerio Ceni’s defense, the team had quite a challenging schedule in the recent period as they faced the likes of Corinthians and Atletico Mineiro on the home ground as well as Sport Recife and Atletico PR on the road.
However, Sao Paulo will have to work hard to fight their way to bounce back on Sunday because Fluminense will come into the game in high spirits.
The visitors stormed past Avai on Wednesday evening to end their negative run of four consecutive games without a victory.
Henrique Dorado continued his amazing form as he was the one who opened the scoreline at Estadio Aderbal Ramos da Silva to take his league tally to nine goals.
