Over 2.5 Goals

Fluminense vs Sao Paulo Preview: Three Points For Defining The Future


The Flu visited Ceara on the previous matchday, where they developed a good strategy to get the three points. Fernando Diniz’s team relied on ball possession to control the pace of the match. With 70% ball possession, Fluminense kept their opponents away from their own goal. However, it was not very successful offensively, as most of Flu’s shots were deflected, and only 5 on target. In the 72nd minute, Jhon Arias assisted German Cano to score the only goal of the match.

Sao Paulo

In the previous match, Sao Paulo obtained a bitter draw, as they let the three points slip away with only 10 minutes left in their match against Atletico Mineiro. Coach Rogerio Ceni opted to play in a direct manner, which is the reason why they had less ball possession than their rival, but more shots. Even so, the difference between one team and the other was the accuracy of each shot, in that aspect Atletico Mineiro was a little better than its rival.
