Fluminense vs Flamengo Match Preview
Fluminense sit just above the relegation zone early in the new campaign and they’ve struggled to find great confidence boosters as they host city rivals Flamengo with a four-match losing streak behind them, including a mid-week Copa do Brasil loss at Cruzeiro (on penalties after a 2-2 draw).
Flu have seen Bahia (3-2) and Athletico PR (3-0) both secure the points on the road and also saw a narrow 1-0 loss at Atletico Nacional along the way, which still saw them make their way past the Colombian rivals on the back of a 4-1 home win. Indeed, they’ve been tougher to beat at Maracana but bouncing back now will be no easy task we feel.
Indeed, Flamengo come into the match in a better place and on the back of a winning streak earned in front of the home crowd, where they beat Athletico PR (3-2), Fortaleza (2-0), and Corinthians (1-0) in three outings across competitions since late May.
Mengao will now be very motivated to impress once again and Jorge Jesus should have no trouble lifting their team spirits, led by in-form Gabriel Barbosa and Bruno Henrique in the final third. We thus hope to see them outgun the rivals and extend the streak on the day.
With that in mind, we’re going for Flamengo to bag an exciting win and keep up with the top of the table, where an Away win comes at 4/6 with Paddy Power and has seen many big hitters lumping already.
We do feel we’re in for goals and they’ll have to impress up front, as we expect a high-scoring contest as we also go for Over 2.5 Goals FT which could prove the best approach to the fixture at 13/10 with bet365.
