Fluminense vs Coritiba: Fluminense hosts Coritiba at the Maracanã…
Although they do have some advantage against the other contenders on the relegation zone, the two teams need to worry more about worrying more relegation than about any other objective in the Serie A.
The more critical situation is definitely Coritiba’s. The team seemed to be drowned on the relegation zone but with a great streak on the last rounds they are out of the relegation zone and are able to breathe again.
They are unbeaten on their last 4 matches, having 3 wins and 1 draw.
Thanks to those 10 points, Coritiba now has 38 points and sits in 14th place. That’s a 3-point advantage over the first team inside the relegation zone. For this match, Henrique Almeida should return to the team.
