CS Alagoano vs Flamengo
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 13 June 2019
Kick-off at 01.30 UK/ 02.30 CET
Venue: Estádio Rei Pelé (Maceió).
Flamengo has been flying high this season in the Serie A. After some inspiring performances, the team finds themselves in the fifth spot, just below the direct-qualification zone for the Copa Libertadores.
Apart from Palmeiras, they have returned the most goals so far in the competition. The team has kind of an obvious weak point though – their away from. If it’s not addressed early, come the final stages of the tournament, their year-long hard work might be undone.
As the next opponent for them is CA Alagoano, one of the worst teams in the league, Flamengo will be targeting a huge win to set their road-record straight.
Alagoano did a bottle-job the last day at home against Botafogo. After firing in the first goal of the game in the 62nd minute, the team looked as if they might be heading towards a win. But two goals in the dying stages of the tie by the visitors presented the three points to them.
CSA’s previous fixture was an even worse one, with them being completely shut out by Atletico MG, along with four conceded goals.

CS Alagoano vs Flamengo Prediction
Flamengo is one of the best teams in Serie A, and they are taking on one of the worst. The former will obviously take advantage of this fixture to bring some similarity to their away record, to that of their games at home.
Supporting their cause is the fact that CSA has just one win from their last nine match-days, and conceded two or more goals in three of their last four games. At home, they lost their last tie against Botafogo, after having the match almost in their pocket.
Flamengo, on the other hand, has lost just seven fixtures from their last 47 attempts and kept clean sheets in their last three ties in a row. While they have struggled a bit on the road in the last few days, the team has lost only four times in their last 23 such attempts, and the last three were against great sides.
Count on the visitors to come out on top against the squad from the low tier of the league table.
