Sport Recife host Fluminense at Estadio Adelmar da Costa Carvalho on Saturday in Brasileiro Serie A action.

Recife are 17th in the standings, with just seven points from 10 games. They are flirting with relegation and haven't managed to win a game in their last five outings.

Recife played out a 1-1 draw with Atletico Goianiense in their most recent league fixture. Marcao opened the scoring for the visitors in the 48th minute, but his strike was canceled out shortly after by a goal from Goianiense's Arthur.

Meanwhile, Fluminense managed to get a draw against Ceara in their last match. Fluminense tried their level best to secure a win on home soil, but Ceara's resolute defense helped their side leave Maracana with a point.

Fluminense are 10th in the table with 14 points from 10 matches played.

Recife have been in shaky form lately, and we expect Fluminense to take full advantage of that.

Fluminense have played well away from home in the 2021 Brasileiro season and should make short work of a weak Recife side on Saturday.
