Fluminense will have absences and returns against Vasco

Fluminense will have news to face Vasco, on Saturday (16), at 4pm, at the Nilton Santos Stadium. After the FIFA Data, Tricolor returns to the field very differently, with some absences and other returns.

Starting with the bench, where Fernando Diniz, who spent the period without games with the Brazilian team, is suspended for his third yellow card. The person who will lead Fluminense is assistant Eduardo Barros, who also accompanied the Tricolor coach in the 2026 World Cup qualifying games.

On the right-back, Samuel Xavier is another certain absence, also due to suspension. His immediate reserve, Guga, will be the replacement. Besides him, Flu will also not have other players for the game.

The midfield will be greatly affected, as Paulo Henrique Ganso will not be involved. The number 10 suffers from pain in his knee, felt in the victory over Olimpia, at Defensores del Chaco, in Paraguay, in the quarter-finals of the Libertadores, and is not fit to play.

Tricolor prioritizes the midfielder’s rest with a view to the Libertadores semi-finals against Internacional.

Another doubt is midfielder Leo Fernández, who suffered a blow in training on Tuesday (12) and is trying to recover in time. The Uruguayan could be used precisely in Ganso’s place. Without him, Diniz has doubts in the starting lineup.

Marlon and Marcelo are options for Fernando Diniz at Fluminense

If it won’t have Ganso and Samuel Xavier, Flu has new options. In defense, after serving a suspension against Fortaleza, Marlon is released and could be an alternative to Fernando Diniz.

Already on the side, after a long hiatus that involved a muscle injury and suspension in the Libertadores, Marcelo is 100% and can return to the team. In his absence, Diogo Barbosa had good performances, and some say he even left a flea behind Diniz’s ear.

Questions about choosing the Fluminense starter

If he had all the pieces at his disposal during the FIFA Data, Fernando Diniz returns with doubts about choosing the team. Without Ganso and probably with Leo Fernández also out, the coach needs to decide who to play from midfield to forward.

If you decide to maintain the system with two center forwards and two wingers, Alexsander should be chosen to play alongside André. Martinelli and Daniel run on the outside.

But if only three attackers are used again, two of those mentioned can be chosen, in addition to Lima, who returned to his original position, on the right midfield, in Paraguay, and assisted Germán Cano’s goal that secured the Tricolor’s place in the semifinals. of Libertadores.
