Fluminense journey to Estádio José Pinheiro Borda on Sunday for the Serie A showdown with home side Internacional.
All Internacional v Fluminense match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - as well as up-to-date odds.
Internacional are hoping to win again after their last result, the 0-1 Copa do Brasil victory against América Mineiro.
It has been a rare occasion in recent games that Internacional have shown defensive steel. In fact, Colorado have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 7 goals during that time.
Their previous form shows that Internacional:
- are unbeaten in their last 11 league matches at home. It's been impressive.
- have not won at home in their last 2 league games.
After suffering a loss in their previous game against Palmeiras in Serie A action, Fluminense and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, Fluminense managed 50% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Palmeiras got 9 attempts at goal with 5 on target. Raphael Veiga (52', 60') was the scorer for Palmeiras.
The stats don’t lie, and Fluminense have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 7 goals in total. Defensively, Tricolor have not been doing too well. However, it remains to be seen whether such a trend will be sustained in this match or not.
Coming into this meeting, Fluminense have not registered a win against Internacional in games played away from home for the previous 6 matches in the league. Not the best of away records.
