Fluminense and Cruzeiro meet at Estádio João Francisco dos Santos, in a match for this stage of the Copa do Brasil (Round of 16). At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 2 wins and 1 draw in the last 3 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 18‑05‑2019, in a match for the Serie A, Fluminense won by (4‑1). The goals of the match were scored by João Pedro (90' and 81' ), Luciano (46' ) and Nino (44' ), for Fluminense, and by Robinho (49' ), for Cruzeiro. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, since Cruzeiro presents significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis Fluminense

The home team comes to this stage of the Copa do Brasil (Round of 16) after having eliminated Vila Nova with a away win by (0‑2) and a home win by (3‑2) in the previous round. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 24 goals scored and 11 conceded; against 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 16 conceded. They come to this match after a home win against Avaí by (2‑0). Fluminense has won 5, tied 2 and lost 3 of the last 10 home matches. In the last 20 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 7 of their 17 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

The fact that Cruzeiro is in the Brazilian second division does not mean that Fluminense will have it easy. In reality, the tricolor needs to assert the home factor to go in search of a good result and, consequently, the advantage. Therefore, playing with ball possession is very important, even more so that they will play with the support of their fans. Having quality in all sectors and leaving no spaces, the probability of getting a win will be greater.

Confirmed Lineup: Fábio, Nino, Samuel Xavier, Manoel, André Trindade da Costa Neto, Nonato, Caio Paulista, Ganso, Jhon Arias, Germán Cano, Luiz Henrique André Rosa da Silva.
Coach: Marcão.

Analysis Cruzeiro

The away team comes to this stage of the Copa do Brasil (Round of 16) after a home win by (1‑0), after extended time, and a away loss by (2‑1) against Remo. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses in away matches, with 24 goals scored and 15 conceded; against 12 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 6 conceded. In their last match, for the Serie B, they got a home win against Ponte Preta by (2‑0). In the last 10 away matches Cruzeiro has won 5, tied 1 and lost 4. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 1 of the last 4 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 30 of the last 67 matches have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 45 out of 67 have ended with Under 2,5 goals. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 12 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 4 of those 12 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 11 of them.

Cruzeiro has been enjoying a good moment in Serie B and everything indicates that they should return to the Brazilian elite. In the Copa do Brasil, even being in the second national division, the fact of having a heavy shirt and being able to overcome their opponents does not change. It won't be easy against Fluminense, but with attitude, determination and commitment, the team can get the advantage. In this way, we can say that the result of the match will pass directly through what is presented over the ninety minutes.

Confirmed Lineup: Rafael, Zé Ivaldo, Eduardo Brock, Matheus Bidu, Geovane de Jesus Rocha, Lucas Oliveira, Machado, Willian, Fernando Canesin, Rodolfo, Edu.
