Corinthians vs Fluminense

Preview

Corinthians have struggled in the league lately, falling off the table quickly, and they will now focus on the domestic cup this weekend.

Last month they drew (2:2) in the first semi-final match of the Copa do Brasil.

Corinthians came from behind twice to equalize, with Roger Guedes ending his nine-game drought and scoring a late equalizer.

The club are three-time national cup winners, last lifting the trophy in 2009 after a 4-2 aggregate victory over Internacional in the final.

True, Corinthians, as a rule, plays well at home. Here they have only two defeats this season.

Fluminense, meanwhile, has had a mixed league record lately, nine points behind the top of the table.

Goals by Ganso and John Arias at the start of each half were not enough to win the first leg. Now the team will need a result away from home.

Last Sunday, the team won at home against Fortaleza (2:1). Before that, there was a draw with the leader of the Brazilian Serie A Palmeiras and a defeat against Atlético Paranaense.
