Fluminense vs Atletico MG Prediction Today
With Maracanã, their preferred stadium, being used for other events, Fluminense had to appeal to Plan B. This should further diminish the public presence, which is no longer following the club’s matches in the Brasileirão.
Even because, the tricolor does not have much more to do in the competition. On the previous day, the team was run over in the classic with Flamengo. It led 3 to 0 without giving any impression that could even reach the draw. He was parked in the 37 points (ten wins, seven draws and 12 losses). He dropped to ninth place on the leaderboard.
There are eight points left to ensure that they remain in Serie A, which is their priority goal in the tournament, and another three or four to ensure their presence in the G12, which would guarantee participation in the 2019 edition of the Copa Sudamericana, . Anything beyond that would be an exaggerated goal in the face of the club’s economic situation and the technical resources available to coach Marcelo Oliveira.
The club’s top priority in the final stretch of the season is really the 2014 version of Sula. On Wednesday, October 24, Fluminense will host the Uruguay National in the first leg of the quarterfinals. The duel will influence the team’s lineup against Atlético-MG.
Ecuadorian midfielder Sornoza, the only creative midfielder available in the squad, is likely to be out of the game. He was left out of the last matches of the Brasileirão for being serving the national team. It has resurfaced, but will probably get more time to rest and have better playing conditions on Wednesday. So you should stay on the bench against the Rooster.Who will return to the team is the right-back Léo. He was suspended for the accumulation of yellow cards against Flamengo and already has conditions of play. In this case, Marcelo Oliveira can not afford to spare the athlete. There is no other specialist in the position available. Gilberto follows the care of the medical department. In the classic with the red-black, Mateus Norton was improvised in the position and the rival took advantage to create his main plays in the match by the sector.
On Wednesday, October 17, in full preparation for Sunday’s game, Atletico MG surprised to announce the resignation of coach Thiago Larghi. He had been in charge since the start of the season when Oswaldo de Oliveira was dismissed. It was only slightly better than 56%.
The crowd had been asking for his dismissal for some time. However, it was hoped that this would happen immediately after a match. The 0-0 draw against América-MG registered on Sunday, October 14, would even be enough to motivate. The almost three-day delay period is a surprise. But it was time to close the signing of Levir Culpi, who will lead the club for the fifth time. He should be in Maracanã to watch the match, although there is no certainty that he will stay on the bench. From his last passage through the Rooster, Levir directed, among others, Fluminense himself, from where he left in a turbulent way.
With 46 points (13 wins, seven draws and nine defeats), Atletico-MG is in the sixth position of the Brasileirão closing the zone of classification for the 2019 version of the Copa Libertadores. It has four points of advantage in comparison with Santos, seventh place .
