In the Copa do Brasil, Cruzeiro will host Fluminense at the Governador Magalhaes Pinto on Wednesday in the second leg of their last 16 tie.

The hosts have had mixed results of late and were beaten 2-1 in the first leg of the tie last month. They struggled to impress offensively, with Geovane's first-half dismissal not helping matters.

The Brasileiro Serie B side managed just five shots all game and scored with their only shot on target. Cruzeiro are the record winners of the cup competition, winning six times and will now look to turn the tie around on home turf as they target a seventh title.

Fluminense have been in brilliant form recently and deserved to have won the first leg by a wider margin, as they had 15 shots in the first half and 16 after the restart. Manoel opened the scoring with a glancing header against his former team before veteran Argentine striker German Cano got in on the act just before the hour mark.

The Tricolor's only cup triumph came in 2007, and they only need to avoid defeat to keep alive their quest of a second title.
