Fluminense vs Sao Paulo build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Having finished fifth in 2020, Fluminense will be pushing for a similar placement this term to seal progression for the Copa Libertadores group stages, as a title challenge seems out of their reach. The four-time Brasileirão winners are currently 14 points adrift of league leaders Atletico Mineiro in eighth, but they enter this contest on a run of four unbeaten games under recently-reinstated Marcao, so will feel confident of pushing up the table and keeping pace in the top-five race.
For Sao Paulo the table represents the bleak reality of their current demise near the foot of the table. The six-time Brasileirão champions are languishing precariously outside the relegation zone by just the single point after 18 matches, tentatively looking over their shoulders in unfamiliar territory. Hernan Crespo must stem the tide and get his side back to firing on all cylinders, or risk the unthinkable, though a relegation dogfight seems very much on the cards as it stands.
- Fluminense (vs Chapecoense): Felipe; Xavier, Claro, Nino, Barcelos; Trindade, Felipe, Martinelli; Henrique, Lucca, Bobadilla.
- Sao Paulo (vs Juventude): Volpi; Alves, Leo, Miranda; Vinic, Nestor, Luan, Reinaldo; Benitez, Rigoni, Luciano.
Dani Alves recently departed Sao Paulo after issues over his delayed salary, so he will no longer be available to Crespo. Former Brazil U23 international Walce also remains sidelined for the visitors with a long-term ACL injury.

Player to watch: Nene (Fluminense)
One of football’s most unfortunate players not to be capped at international level, Nene was a sensation during his successful stint at PSG but was unable to receive that first-ever call-up to Brazil. During his time in Paris, between 2010 and 2013, the scintillating forward netted 48 goals in 112 games, winning the Ligue 1 Top Scorer award in 2011/12 after finding the back of the net 21 times. At the age of 40, Nene is still going strong, now representing Fluminense, whom he joined from Monday’s opposition Sao Paulo in 2019. The veteran attacker will no doubt be itching the make the turf and nab a goal or two. With his current club vying desperately to inch into the top five, the experience, know-how and attacking penetration of Nene will be crucial to that quest.
