It's the second away game in a row for Fluminense, but there's smiles all around after the 2-1 victory versus Flamengo (placed 3rd) in the Serie A last time out. A loss against São Paulo was the result prior to that, in a home game.

Fluminense goalie Marcos Felipe was high and low in the Flamengo game, contributing seven saves towards the victory. The end of the last match, against Flamengo, was very satisfying as Yago Felipe scored the winning goal deep into overtime.
