With an advantage, Fluminense seeks to advance to the group stage with the Argentine Cano

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 28 Fluminense will seek with Argentine striker Germán Cano to advance to the group round of the Copa Libertadores on Tuesday in Rio de Janeiro, where Millonarios needs a win to reach the third phase after being defeated by the Brazilians in the first leg After beating Millonarios 1-2 in Bogotá, the Rio de Janeiro tricolor only needs a draw to continue in the tournament, while the Bogota club needs a win with more than two goals to advance or a simple victory to reach the penalties. Although Fluminense has the advantage, the Colombian “ambassadors” can surprise in Rio. Millonarios, the club with the most points as a visitor in the Colombian league, will not be an easy rival for Fluminense, who already faltered in Bogotá and won the first leg more by luck than merit. On the field, the Bogotanos showed a better performance in the first leg and even had the advantage from the beginning, but the expulsion of Venezuelan Eduardo Sosa, who left the team incomplete in the 18th minute, made the situation difficult. Coach Abel Braga has already announced that the starter may undergo some changes for the Colombian John Arias – who could replace William Bigode – and Matheus Martinelli, who entered Bogotá in the second half with an outstanding performance. Paulo Henrique Ganso is also almost certainly on the field, after the good performance he showed on Saturday in the Rio de Janeiro championship, when the tricolor won 2-0 against Vasco. The Argentine Germán Cano, who gave victory to Fluminense in Bogotá, is more than confirmed and will command the attack of the Cariocas this Tuesday after the injury suffered by Fred in his debut in the Libertadores. The striker is Fluminense’s top scorer and his overwhelming game is well known by the “ambassadors” who suffered from his scoring when he played for Independiente Medellín. The team that qualifies this Tuesday in Rio at the San Januario stadium, where the ticket office was sold out, will have to face the winner between the Paraguayan Olimpia and the Colombian Atlético Nacional, to continue to the group stage. Possible alignments: Fluminense: Fábio; Nino, Felipe Melo, David Braz; André, Yago Felipe (Matheus Martinelli), Calegari, Cris Silva, Mario Pineida; Luiz Henrique, Willian Bigode (John Arias) and Germán Cano. Coach: Abel Braga. Millionaires: Álvaro Montero; Andrés Roman, Andrés Llinás, Juan Pablo Vargas, Omar Bertel; Stiven Vega, Larry Vasquez, David Silva, Eduardo Sosa, Daniel Ruiz, and Diego Herazo. Coach: Alberto Gamero.
