Flamengo vs Fortaleza Match Preview
Flamengo returned to the winning ways with a thrilling 3-2 win over Athletico Paranaense as Bruno Henrique and Rodrigo Caio completed a comeback in the final minutes of the contest, keeping hold of their perfect records at Maracana and now hosting Fortaleza for their Matchday 7 clash surely hoping to build on the performance.
Mengao have thus bagged four wins in four home outings across competitions this term and although they’ve struggled for such consistency on the road, sit within reach of the top of the Serie A table. They have been conceding goals on the regular but Marcelo Salles’ men managed to outgun the rivals here, as we now expect more of the same.
Fortaleza will be no easy rivals to deal with, though, and they come into the match on the back of a five-match unbeaten streak of their own – where they enjoyed a busy schedule and held off Vasco da Gama (1-1) in Serie A and beat Botafogo (0-1) in Copa de Nordeste this week already.
Leao have been finding the net on the regular and this also adds to our belief we’re in for another exciting occasion in Rio, although we don’t see them building on solid head-to-head records against Flamengo on the day.
We will thus back Flamengo to outgun the rivals and bag all three points in an exciting occasion, as we go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 13/5 with Bet365 – which seems like more than just a lively longshot at this point.
Indeed, we’ve seen such clashes at this ground on the regular lately and this also has us going for a high-scoring contest with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 17/20 with Paddy Power, which could as well prove the best approach to the fixture at this point as Flamengo’s fourth such occasion at Maracana in a row.
