Fluminense vs Sport – La Liga: Fluminense hosts Sport Recife at the Maracanã this Saturday on a Brazilian Serie A’s match…
These are two teams that come with different motivations going into these final rounds of the competition. Fluminense was able to achieve mathematical salvation on the last round with the victory over Ponte Preta.
Abel Braga’s team occupies the 14th place with 46 points gained. If they win the 2 remaining matches and count on a mathematical combination of other results,
they can even dream about qualifying for the Copa Libertadores, if the number of qualifying spots really is extended to 9.
On the other side we have a Sport that was dreaming of better things this season.
The team has built an expensive roster. But they arrive at the final stretch of this Brazilian Serie A fighting against relegation.
Sport in in 18th place with 39 points and they need to get points in these 2 matches because they are at risk of being relegated if they fail to do so.

Fluminense vs Sport – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Okay, mathematically, Fluminense can still think about eventually qualifying for the Copa Libertadores upon the possibility of the expansion? Yes. But realistically, that’s very hard since they have a lot of teams above them.
Still, if there has been a team in this Brazilian Serie A that was always synonym of overs, goals and both teams scoring it was definitely Fluminense.
Much thanks to the imbalance that the team presented since the beginning of the year. A lot of youth and not too many signings led to that.
On the other hand, Sport is completely desperate for two wins on the last two matches to dream about escaping relegation.
And Sport’s attack is good, despite the low productivity on the last matches. Therefore, I believe we will have an encounter with goals.
