Fluminense

 

Fluminense sit in mid-table after 15 matches, with their big disappointment being not being able to convert more of their six draws into wins. They have been an entertaining team to watch though, being involved in 47 goals in 15 matches, as they create and concede a host of chances.

They were held last time out by Cruzeiro in a 1-1 draw in which both teams created a host of chances. Flu needed a penalty to equalise, their sixth of the season so far, but continuously showcase a potential vulnerability in defence, conceding 1.88 xG.

 

It is becoming a recurring theme that they concede a lot of chances in matches, and have one of the highest expected goal against (xGA) figures in the league. With the table toppers visiting and with hoe clinical they have been so far this season, Fluminense need to tighten things up or they face being heavily beaten.

Corinthians

 

The league leaders have drawn their last two matches to allow Gremio to reduce their lead dramatically, after it was briefly looking like they were running away with the title. Carille’s men remain unbeaten, and have been performing very well despite not picking up all three points in recent outings.

  

Performances remain consistent 

 

Last time out they were held by newly promoted Avai, but they were unlucky not to get all three points, with Infogol calculating they would win this match 52% of the time according to chances created.

 

It was the same story in the game prior, as they were held 2-2 by Atletico Paranaense, but were very unfortunate also not to get the win, creating a host of chances (2.56 xG) while conceding few (0.49 xG) – with Infogol calculating Corinthians would win this game 81% of the time, showcasing how well they have been playing recently.

  

In-form: Corinthians playing well 

 

Conclusion

 

Fluminense are a very unpredictable team, playing very well in one game but very poorly in the next, struggling to find any consistency so far this season. Corinthians are playing very well and have found a solid level of performance, and are expected to do so again and get back to winning ways.
