In the reunion between the team and Tricolores, Fluminense fans saw the team draw 0-0 at Beira-Rio, but that didn’t stop them from celebrating. The first game after winning the Conmebol Libertadores, 2-1 over Boca Juniors at Maracanã last Saturday, was precisely in the stadium that saw the heroic turnaround that qualified the team for the decision.

After the draw with Inter, André – starter in this Wednesday’s game – spoke about the mixed team that Fluminense sent to the field. According to him, there was a lot of demand from Fernando Diniz for the players to remain serious in the Brazilian Championship.
– We know how difficult it is to play a match right after a great achievement, but Diniz demanded a lot for us to enter 100% focused, trying to seek victory in this match. I think it was no different, it is very difficult to play in Beira-Rio, the Internacional team has a very qualified team. We came with a very mixed team compared to the final and ended up with most of the starters. We tried to create, but knowing that this match was going to be difficult. I think the 0-0 was a good score.
With the 2023 Conmebol Libertadores title, Fluminense already has its place in the competition guaranteed for next year. The draw keeps Flu in eighth, with 46 points. Inter is 11th with 43.
