This Wednesday, the Fluminense faces Corinthians, at 9 pm, at Neo Química Arena, in a game valid for the 26th round of the Brazilian Championship. With the embezzlement of two holders, Tricolor seeks to recover the points lost at home, against Fortaleza and Atlético-GO. Besides the fight for the G6, the carioca has an extra motivation: in the last duel in São Paulo, the team suffered the biggest rout in the history of the confrontation.
Fluminense and Corinthians have already faced each other 60 times for the Brasileirão. Of these, Flu won 20, while São Paulo won on 22 occasions, in addition to 18 draws. Although the history is balanced, Tricolor only won nine games in the Neo Química Arena.
In the last match at the stadium, Corinthians secured a 5-0 rout in the 2020 edition of the competition. In the first round of this edition, the teams tied for 1-1, in São Januário, in the 7th round of the championship.
Since the start of the second round, Marcão’s team has been trying to touch the Libertadores classification zone. After seven games without losing at the Brazilian Nationals, the group lost to Fortaleza and drew with Atlético-GO at Maracanã. Thus, Flu seeks position from Corinthians, 6th place with 37 points, but even if they win away from home, they cannot overtake the opponent in this round.
The situation in the table does not cheer up, as well as the Tricolor embezzlement for the confrontation. After the third yellow card, the defender Luccas Claro is suspended and did not travel with the team to São Paulo. This Tuesday, Fred cracked the toe of his left foot and is also an embezzler of Fluminense.
Thus, the mission of returning home with the three points is not an easy task, especially without its main player. However, if they win the opponent, Tricolor can resume the path of victories in a night marked by the rematch and continue in search of its main objective in the competition: a spot in the Libertadores 2022.
