Fluminense vs Junior build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Fluminense have done well to negotiate a tough Libertadores group so far, twice beating Colombian side Santa Fe while picking up valuable draws against River Plate and Junior. Another draw here will be enough to see Roger Machado’s side through to the knockout rounds, where Fluminense will continue their quest for a first-ever Libertadores title.
Atletico Junior head to Brazil looking to keep their Libertadores hopes alive. The Sharks are third in Group D after drawing three and losing one of their opening four games so far. Defeat here, coupled with River Plate avoiding defeat against Santa Fe would see them crash out of the tournament. But even if that happens, Junior will look to hold onto third place to advance to the Copa Sudamericana knockout rounds.
- Fluminense (vs Flamengo): Marcos Felipe; Calegari, Nino, Claro, Egidio; Yago Felipe, Martinelli; Kayky, Nene, Teixeira; Fred.
- Junior (vs River Plate): Viera; Viafara, Rosero, Ditta, Fuentes; Vasquez, Moreno; Pajoy, Gonzalez, Hinestroza; Borja.
Neither side picked up any fresh injuries or suspensions in their last match. Fluminense’s starting XI is likely to include experienced forward Fred, as well as Kayky, who is set to move to Manchester City in January.

Player to watch: Kayky (Fluminense)
With an £8m-move (plus add-ons) to Manchester City already in the bag, teenage forward Kayky is already making waves in Brazil. The 17-year-old, who can play on either wing, found the net in a 1-1 draw the last time these two sides met earlier in May, thus making him the youngest goalscorer in the Libertadores in Fluminense history.
Across all competitions, Kayky has three goals and two assists in 12 appearances for the Brazilian giants this season, a remarkable total for such a young player and a great indicator of his serious potential. With just seven months to go until he moves to England, Kayky will want to use this time to keep the goals flowing and lead his current club to glory before joining the Premier League champions.
