Flamengo vs Fortaleza (By: Enzo)
Flamengo RJ comes from an important 3:2 home victory over Athletico-PR last weekend. It was a very interesting game that could have ended both ways since the guests reverted the lead from Flamengo and were 2:1 up all the way till the 90th minute.
Finally, a goal from Flamengo in the seventh minute of added time brought them the victory. The side now has three wins, a draw, and two losses, being just a point behind Copa Libertadores positions and six points behind leaders from Palmeiras.
Fortaleza improved slightly in recent matches, in Serie A as well as in the Brazilian Cup. The team comes from a 1:1 draw at home against Vasco.
It was a game where they had much more of the ball possession but were unlucky to stay behind in the scoreline from a penalty kick, still being able to level up the result towards the end.
The game could have ended better for them, only if they were the first ones to score. It was the second game with no defeat for them now, as they remain just a point above the relegation zone.
Flamengo RJ has some problems when playing on the road, as almost every season, however, they do look very concrete with the ball to their feet in front of own crowd.
No doubt that they are favorites to win, but also remain vulnerable at the back early in the season. Fortaleza definitely can hurt them once while the hosts alone remain more than capable of scoring all three.
