The ‘Flu’ was able to beat his rivals by the minimum account thanks to an own goal in stoppage time of the first half. Fluminense has been amending the course in the Brasileirao, a tournament in which they are currently occupying sixth place in the classification.

This Saturday they have been playing some matches corresponding to the fifth date of Brasileirao, which despite the harsh health situation in Brazil, has managed to maintain the pace of competition in recent weeks. In that sense, Fluminense achieved a valuable victory for the minimum account over Atlético Paranaense in visiting conditions.

The ‘Flu’ had opened the scoring through Lucas Claro (25 ‘), but the conquest was annulled after being reviewed by the VAR after detecting a previous infraction. Finally, Fluminense continued to insist and found the fruits thanks to a pinch of luck, after Colombian defender Felipe Aguilar (45 + 4 ‘) sent the ball into the back of his own goal.

With this victory, Fluminense reached 7 points, ranking sixth in the Brasileirao. For its part, Atlético Paranaense, Colo Colo’s rival in the Copa Libertadores, was stuck in seventh place with 6 points, the product of the two victories with which it began its career in the tournament.

For the next day, Fluminense should receive a visit from Vasco da Gama on Saturday, August 29 at 6:00 p.m. in Chile. For his part, Parananese was scheduled to be a rival of Jorge Sampaoli’s Atlético Mineiro, but that meeting has been postponed with no set date yet.
