O Atlético won the first leg, 2-1, at Nilton Santos, in Rio de Janeiro. With that, they play for a draw or a win on any scoreboard, this Wednesday, to qualify. As in the Copa do Brasil there is no criterion for goals away from home, if Fluminense defeats their rival by a goal difference, the spot will be decided on penalties, by more than one, they advance straight.
Those who pass the stage receive R$7.3 million in prize money and faces the winner of the confrontation between Fortaleza and São Paulo, who also face each other this Wednesday, in Ceará.
The game this Wednesday will not have the presence of fans at Mineirão. Galo even has an injunction from the STJD that would allow it to sell tickets, but chose to comply with the agreement between clubs and CBF, so that it has fans in knockout games only if the two teams can exercise the right. In addition, the club is still waiting for the publication of the ordinance of the city of Belo Horizonte regulating the permission.
