Fluminense to Win at Half Time and Full Time

Yes, Criciuma already surprised us with a win in the first leg against Fluminense. And yes, Fluminense is on a three-game losing streak in all competitions, in addition to having an important Copa Libertadores duel scheduled for next week. Still, we expect Fluminense to win this game, simply based on the difference in quality between two teams. After all, Criciuma is playing in Serie C this season. So, our prediction is for Fluminense to lead at half time and win the game in the end.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

We’ve already seen three goals in the first leg between Fluminense and Criciuma, so we expect to see the same in the second leg. After all, Fluminense will have to play offensively to overcome the deficit from the first match and Criciuma has already shown that they can put some goals past them, so our next prediction is for this game to go over 2.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

The last four head-to-head meetings between Fluminense and Criciuma have ended with both teams scoring, including their first duel in the Brazilian cup a few days ago. With that in mind, we expect to see both teams scoring in the rematch as well, despite the fact that Fluminense is the heavy favourite to win the game.

Fluminense vs Criciuma preview: Can Criciuma hold on to their lead?

The home team will try to overcome the surprising 2-1 deficit from the first leg, so let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their upcoming Copa do Brasil rematch:

Fluminense

It was clear that Fluminense is not in the top form, like they were at the start of Serie A season when they went on a five-game streak without a loss, but their loss to Criciuma in the first leg of the Top 16 round of Copa do Brasil was still a huge upset. Of course, Fluminense is the clear favourite for the second leg, but the team also has to play the second leg of the Top 16 phase of Copa Libertadores a few days after their duel with Criciuma, so they could have a problem with this congested schedule.

Criciuma

Despite the fact that they are playing in the third-tier Brazilian league, Criciuma has proven so far that they are rightfully in the Top 16 phase of Copa do Brasil. On their road to this stage, Criciuma elminated Marilia, Ponte Preta, and America Mineiro. And after the first leg against Fluminense, Criciuma has a 2-1 lead and a chance to reach the quarter-finals of the Brazilian cup.
