Fred set to miss Fluminense's Copa do Brasil clashFred will sit out this Wednesday's match
Fluminense captain Fred is set to miss the second leg of their Copa do Brasil match against Paysandu.
The 31 year old will join Ronaldinho on the sidelines as Fluminense look to protect a 2-1 first leg lead and move into the quarter finals. Only a last minute goal from Renato gave Flu the advantage in the first leg againt their Série B opponents.
Paysandu will take heart from the fact that Fluminense have lost three of their last four league games and confidence will not have improved with two key players sitting out Wednesday's clash. Fred picked up a thigh injury in the defeat against Joinville while Ronaldinho has been given a rest after a hectic schedule.
