Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Serie A table, Fluminense will host Cuiaba on Sunday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Fluminense might have been disappointed to have only collected a single point last weekend, they are enjoying an extended unbeaten run. In their 20 Serie A matchups this season, they have recorded 10 wins, five draws and five defeats, scoring 31 and conceding 22 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 35, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat third in the standings and holding a three-point buffer from dropping out of the top-six. As for their recent run of results, despite being last seen playing out a 2-2 draw away at Santos, Fluminense are unbeaten in each of their previous 12 matchups across all formats, recording 10 victories. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Sunday’s hosts have won each of their last five straight home fixtures.
As for the visitors, only continuing on what has been a downbeat run of form, Cuiaba find themselves at the heart of a relegation scrap. In their 20 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded just five wins, five draws and 10 defeats, scoring 14 and conceding 21 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 20, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat 17th in the standings and one-point adrift of finding a route out of the relegation zone. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 1-0 loss at home against fellow strugglers Fortaleza, Cuiaba have collected just a single point from any of their last four Serie A matchups. Given the recent gulf in class between Sunday’s opponents, we’re backing a home victory here.
