Chelsea-bound Wallace set to start for Fluminense against Duque de Caxias


Fluminense's right-back Bruno is not fully fit and will thus be rested as the Tricolor face Duque de Caxias for the Rio de Janeiro State Championship this Saturday.

Chelsea-bound Wallace will replace him, this will be his second game for Flu this season as he made his debut against Audax last weekend.

The full-back was part of Brazil's squad in the South American Under 20 Championship and has not been given much playing time since it was agreed he will join Chelsea in August.

Fluminense will also be missing national team players Diego Cavalieri, Jean and Fred, who are in Europe for Brazil's friendlies against Italy and Russia. Colombia's national team player Valencia is also unavailable.

Deco will be back to the first team as manager Abel Braga hopes he recovers his fitness. The midfielder however felt pains in his knee during the week.

Fluminense's expected lineup is: Ricardo Berna; Wallace, Leandro Euzébio, Gum and Carlinhos; Edinho, Diguinho, Wagner and Deco; Wellington Nem and Samuel.
