Despite not entering the field this Tuesday, Fluminense celebrated this result. The Laranjeiras team had already guaranteed its presence in the preliminary phase of the Copa Libertadores after defeating Ceará 1-0 last Monday. But the tie between Galo and Morumbi’s team guaranteed Fernando Diniz’s team in the group stage of the continental competition.
