LDU Quito – Fluminense: Preview & Prediction
While Fluminense had to play for the Brazilian Championship, LDU had the free schedule. He had the opportunity to train with the aim of starting the whole week.
His last appointment for the Ecuadorian Championship came on September 9 when he defeated Macara 2-0 with home points with 12 points (three wins, three draws and three losses). He is nine points behind Delfin, the leader, who has held one more match.
A yellow card in the first leg cost Fluminense the loss of the player who has been most important to the club in the 2017 season. Center forward Henrique Dourado is suspended. The damage can be double. In addition to not having the top scorer of the Brazilian Championship with 14 goals scored, the striker will also be a serious embezzlement in an eventual penalty shootout. He is the main collector of the club with use of 100%.
The choice of his substitute also became a problem for coach Abel Braga. By characteristic, the young Pedro, who entered several times in the vacancy of Dourado throughout the season, appears like main candidate. However, his poor performance in those matches may cause coach Abel Braga to opt for other solutions.
Among these possibilities would be newly hired Robinho, Peu or even Marco Junior, more experienced. The possibility of the team acting without reference man in the attack can not be ruled out. In that case, the midfield would consist of five athletes with sprinter Wellington Silva at the front.
