Fluminense vs Flamengo (By: Enzo)
Fluminense entered a bit poor period now, coming from four consecutive negative results. They suffered back to back losses away from home in the Serie A losing to Bahia and Atletico PR on the road, while the team also lost 1:0 away to Atletico Nacional in Copa Sudamericana - but still progressed further.
Finally, they lost on the road to Cruzeiro after penalty kicks and a 2:2 game in the Copa do Brasil to get excluded. It's a bit of negative situation, but nothing disappointing as they really couldn't do more away to Atletico PR last weekend playing with a man less for more than sixty minutes.
The team is now in the second part of the table with two victories, five defeats and surely in a situation where they need to improve strength and react.
Flamengo comes from a 2:0 victory last weekend at home against Fortaleza, not having many problems to prove that they are the far stronger side.
The game was decided thanks to two goals from Gabriel, each in different halftime, in an overall very open game where the hosts didn't switch to passive role towards the end of the game.
With a 4-1-2 record, Flamengo RJ is now inside the top positions and need a victory here to keep up the pace. During the midweek they won again over Corinthians 1:0, to seal progress into the quarterfinals of the Copa do Brazil.
- There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 5 of Fluminense's last 6 games.
Flamengo plays more open than the average club in Brazilian Serie A and with the players of Fluminense also being in a must respond situation, I definitely see this game being an open as it can get.
The hosts will surely be fired up to get something out of here, but they remain too weak and vulnerable at the back. Goals are likely, but still, this comes as more of a value bet.
