In this Monday, Fluminense x Atlético-MG face off at 8 pm (GMT), in São Januário, for the 17th round of the Brazilian championship. The teams live very different moments in the season and in Brasileirão. While Galo is competing in three competitions and fighting for titles in all of them, Flu only has the national competition and fights not to enter the relegation zone.
O Tricolor Rio lives a troubled moment in the season, disqualified in the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores, the team lost coach Roger Machado, and because of bad performances in the national competition, is in 16th and already flirts with the relegation zone, only one point behind the Z4’s first place, Grêmio.
Despite having the match against the same Fluminense for the Copa do Brasil, Rooster should go with the starting lineup for tonight’s duel. The Minas Gerais club is the isolated leader of the competition, with 37 points, and hasn’t lost for nine rounds and if he wins the Flu, he will have an advantage of eight points in the lead of the Brasileirão.
