Fluminense will host Ceara on Saturday - Brasileirao 2022

In the 16th game week of the Brasileiro Serie A, Fluminense will host Ceara at the Estadio do Maracana on Saturday.

The hosts are enjoying a good run of form, trouncing second-placed Corinthians 4-0 in their last game. Strikes from Manoel and German Cano gave the Tricolor a two-goal lead at the break. The Argentine striker doubled his tally midway through the second half before Fred came off the bench to complete the rout.

Fluminense are sixth in the league standings with 24 points from 15 games. They will look to continue their strong run this weekend as they seek their first league triumph in a decade.

Ceara, meanwhile, have struggled to pick up league wins this season. They held on for a 1-1 draw against Internacional in their last league game, marking their fifth straight draw in the competition. However, they secured a quarterfinal spot in the Copa Sudamericana with a 5-1 aggregate win over The Strongest.

The Vozao have picked up just 18 points from 15 games and sit 15th in the league standings. They are just one point above the drop zone and will look to widen that gap this weekend.
