Now, Fluminense is expected to play in the South American championship, joining Brazilian teams Atlético-GO, Ceará, Cuiabá, Santos, Internacional, and São Paulo.
After winning the first match 3-1 in Rio de Janeiro, Fluminense can lose by a one-goal difference to move on to the group stage. Coach Abel Braga is likely to keep the team that defeated the Paraguayans last week.
The match will be held at the Nilton Santos stadium in Rio, for a spot in the third stage prior to the CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores, the last before the second phase.
Massa Bruta beats Inter at the end and takes the spot straight to continental competition. Tricolor and Coelho win, respectively, Chapecoense and São Paulo and go to the preliminary round.
