After missing the victory in the match with Fortaleza, away from home, Juventud considers the duel against Fluminense as another decision. It will be the club’s fifth game as a home team looking for their first home win. In the previous four games, there were two draws and two defeats. At the moment, Alviverde is in the penultimate position, adding seven points.
Fluminense, on the other hand, is trying to recover from a failure at Flamingo’s home and is betting on starting as an unimaginable visitor to Brasileirão.

The final victory at the stadium was in the 2005 Serie A 4-3. Since then, there have been two draws and one defeat in three local matches.
