After two consecutive defeats in the Brazilian Championship, against Flamengo and Juventude, Fluminense is looking for rehabilitation against one of the teams considered favorites to win the title. On Wednesday night, Tricolor welcomes Atlético-MG, at 21:30, at Maracanã.
For the match, coach Fernando Diniz continues without Nino, injured. On the other hand, David Braz returns after serving a suspension and takes his place, forming a pair of defenders with Manoel. Reserve left-back Mario Pineida is also out of action. Expelled even without joining Juventude, Nonato is another casualty, as well as Matheus Martins, at the service of the under-20 team, and Nathan, on loan from Atlético-MG for contractual reasons. Also returning is Jhon Arias. The attacking midfielder was absent in Caxias do Sul because he was called up to play a friendly for Colombia.

On the other hand, coach Antonio Mohamed is a bit of a mystery. The club did not disclose the list of players who traveled to Rio de Janeiro. So, there is doubt about the presence of forward Keno, recovering from injury, and left-back Guilherme Arana, who was in the Brazilian team playing friendlies in Asia.
