Criciuma vs Fluminense build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Criciuma have enjoyed a strong start to their league season, sitting third in Serie C Group B with 17 points from nine games so far. But Fluminense will provide a completely new level of competition to what they’ve faced so far this term.
Roger Machado’s side are 10th in Serie A after 13 games, comfortably within the qualification spots for next year’s Copa Sudamericana. What’s more, Fluminense look almost certain to reach the Copa Libertadores quarter-finals with a 2-0 lead of Cerro Porteno after their round-of-16 first leg. To end this season without silverware, or at least a final, would likely be viewed as a disappointment by Fluminense supporters given their current predicament.
- Criciuma (vs Figueirense): Gustavo; Alemao, Fagundes, Marcel, Santos; Arilson, Vieira; Silvinho, Mateus, Hygor; Marcao.
- Fluminense (vs Palmeiras): Marcos; Xavier, Manoel, Braz, Egidio; Yago, Martinelli; Paulista, Nene, Teixeira; Fred.
Fluminense will be without Nino, who is away at the Olympics with Brazil, while Hudson and Raul Bobadilla are injured.
Player to watch: Nenê (Fluminense)
At 40 years old, it’s hard to believe one-time Paris Saint-Germain and West Ham United winger Nenê is still playing. But he’s not just making up the numbers, he’s actually going strong.
Nenê scored the crucial third goal in Fluminense’s 3-2 aggregate win over Bragantino in the previous round of this competition, while he also popped up with the opening goal during the recent 2-0 win over Cerro Porteno in the Copa Libertadores.
He might not be blessed with pace anymore, but Nenê still has elite end product and bags of experience. Inspiring Fluminense to a Copa do Brasil title would be some way to end his career should he decide to retire later this year.
