Criciuma is set to face Fluminense in an exciting Brasileiro clash at Estadio Heriberto Hulse. This match is crucial for both teams as they look to improve their standings in the league.

Here’s a comprehensive preview, including predictions and team news.

Current Form

Criciuma

Criciuma ended a two-game winless streak by defeating Cruzeiro at home but could not maintain their momentum, losing 2-1 to Vitoria.

They currently sit 14th in the league with 16 points from 13 games, just four points clear of the relegation zone.

However, they have played fewer matches than most teams around them. Criciuma boasts a solid home record, being unbeaten in their last four matches at Estadio Heriberto Hulse, with two wins and two draws.

Fluminense

Fluminense has had a dismal season, finding themselves at the bottom of the Brasileiro Serie A.

Despite being the reigning Copa Libertadores champions, they have struggled, with only one win in the league.

Following the sacking of coach Fernando Diniz, Mano Menezes has taken charge, managing to secure a draw against Internacional but subsequently losing to Fortaleza.

They have yet to win an away game, with two goals scored and 12 conceded in away matches.

Team News

Criciuma

The home side will be without Felipe Vizeu due to a thigh injury and Jonathan Lemos who has a hamstring problem.

Tobias Figueiredo is also out with a groin strain. However, Allano is available after suspension, and Wilker Angel returns from Copa America duty.

Fluminense

Fluminense will miss Jhon Arias, who is on international duty with Colombia, and German Cano, who is suspended.

They have a long injury list, including Lele, Isaac, Andre, Manoel, Felipe Melo, Vinicius Lima, David Terans, Lucas Calegari, and Marcelo.

Prediction

Given Criciuma’s strong home form and Fluminense’s ongoing struggles, Criciuma is favored to win this match.

They are building momentum and will look to capitalize on their opponent's poor away record. A 1-0 victory for Criciuma seems likely.

Criciuma has the upper hand and could use this opportunity to move closer to the Copa Sudamericana spots while Fluminense desperately seeks to turn their season around.

The match promises to be a pivotal encounter for both teams.
