If it wins Bahia and Juventude, both at Maracanã, on the second and fifth, respectively, the Tricolor will make a huge leap in the leaderboard.
The Team of Warriors can win up to three positions this Monday, beating Bahia and going to 21 points. It surpasses Bahia (18), Juventude (21) and Cuiabá (20), who face Fortaleza away from home (a tie already benefits Tricolor). With that, Flu can close the round in 13th place.

Tricolor would have one more victory than the northeast (6 against 5) and would inherit the 8th place.
