FLAMENGO VS PALMEIRAS PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Flamengo has had 2 consecutive seasons crowned in Serie A and their journey to defend their throne this season will start with a highly appreciated opponent. The form and strength of the defending champion of this tournament have been shown by the fact that they are unbeaten in the last 12 matches with 7 wins and 5 draws on all fronts.
Even more impressive is that in that unbeaten streak, the Maracana home team proved their bravery. They had 12 points after 3 wins and 3 draws in the Copa Libertadores group stage. A week ago, Flamengo also had a jubilant victory over a heavyweight opponent, Fluminense at the Campeonato Carioca arena.
Last season, Palmeiras finished in 7th place and that means a place in the Copa Libertadores arena this season. The arena where they have just gone through the group stage is very successful with first place in the group. They won 15 points after 5 wins and 1 loss.
Last week, Palmeiras lost 0-2 to Sao Paulo away in a match within the framework of Campeonato Paulista. This defeat also ended the previous 10-match unbeaten away streak, including 8 wins and 2 draws. In the last match of the Copa Libertadores group stage, Palmeiras had a strong 6-0 victory over Universitario de Deportes, the opponent that in the first leg they only won 3-2.
In general, these are all very good teams in this arena and have also shown formidable strength in the continental arena, specifically in the last Copa Libertadores group stage. However, with the level of the defending champion and being able to play at home. I is not surprising that Flamengo is the team that is being appreciated more. Remember that they have won 4, drawn 1 in the last 5 home matches. Recently, the most recent was a jubilant victory over Fluminense with a score of 3-1. Therefore, the above bet is a smart choice.
Select: Flamengo -3/4 FT.
Flamengo has never scored less than 2 goals in the last 5 home matches. Most recently 3 goals against a very strong opponent, Fluminense, who finished in 5th place last season. In addition, the defending champion’s defense is not appreciated. They have not once kept a clean sheet in the last 8 home matches. This will be a concern before an attack that has just scored 6 goals in a match 3 days ago.
Select: Over 2 1/2 FT.
Flamengo vs Palmeiras prediction: Flamengo 2-1 Palmeiras FT.
In addition to the home advantage in this opening match and possessing a very good home form. Flamengo also receives trust thanks to its superior head-to-head record against this opponent. Specifically, in the last 7 encounters, they have never received a defeat. They won 3, drew 4, of which they won 2-0 in the second leg last season also at home. Adding the class and confidence of the defending champion, Flamengo’s ability to take 3 points in this opening match is quite possible.
