Leader of the competition with 75 points, Atlético comes from victories over Grêmio, Corinthians, Athletico-PR and Juventude, and draws against Palmeiras, away from home. If they win this Sunday and Flamengo don’t defeat Ceará next Tuesday, Galo confirms the Brasileirão title without taking the field, in the complement of the 36th round.
Even if Flamengo beat Ceará, Galo’s victories over Fluminense, this Sunday, and Bahia, next Thursday, guarantee the trophy to the Minas Gerais team in advance.
Seventh-placed with 51 points, Fluminense has been rocked by consecutive victories over América-MG and Inter, and is looking for a victory to forward the classification to Libertadores. Away from home, however, Tricolor will have to reverse the record of four consecutive defeats.
