Fluminense vs Sao Paulo prediction and betting tips on November 23, 2023
It is hard to find out a similar example, thus, the situation is really curious. On Wednesday night, Fernando Diniz, being at the head of the Brazilian national team, will face Argentina in a fundamental qualifying match for the World Cup among the countries of South America at Maracanã. And his club, Fluminense, will host Sao Paulo there, already as part of the local Serie A, in just a day. How will such a match go? The analytical department of the website makes its prediction for this confrontation on November 23, 2023.
Fluminense is unlikely to show serious attitude
“The Tricolor from Rio” will not achieve anything special in the current Brasileiro draw. The club that finished the previous season in 3rd place is now clearly behind even the top 6. The gap has already reached 10 points and there is no time to win it back. Still, everything was more than compensated for by the triumph in the Copa Libertadores. The Brazilians, who had reached the final only once before, a decade and a half ago, have now taken the title. And it is pretty fair that, having eliminated all opponents in the play-offs before a penalty shootout, they defeated Boca Juniors in the decisive match – 2-1.

Sao Paulo also finally got a trophy
“The Tricolor” is a popular and successful club, even by Brazilian standards. Still, the recent years have been bleak for the grandee. After winning the Copa Sudamericana back in 2012, there were successes only at the state level for a whole decade – this is also quite a lot by the country standards (just have a look at the participants), but the team always expects the maximum. Generally speaking, this season did not promise any breakthroughs: “the Tricolor” again hung at the bottom of the top 10 in the Serie A and was quickly relegated from the Copa Sudamericana. This time, it managed to “shoot” in the cup tournament. As for the final, having beaten Flamengo on the away field and achieving a 1-1 draw in the home struggle – finally, the team lifted the trophy.
