Corinthians vs Flamengo
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 21 July 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Arena Corinthians (Sao Paulo).
Flamengo has carved themselves a spot on the podium for now, but a major reason for that is their home games. This match-day though, they do not have that luxury. They have been able to record just a single win on the road this campaign, and that was against one of the squads from the bottom-most tier, CSA.
Opponents, Corinthians, meanwhile, have a game in hand and is already in a promising position in the table. With their home advantage this Sunday, fans hope for a steep rise up the rankings.
It also helps that they are unbeaten at this venue in league fixtures this season.
Corinthians vs Flamengo Head-to-head (h2h)
- Flamengo won the last three games.
- 18 of the last 23 wins went to the teams at home.
- Nine of the last eleven wins at this venue went to the hosts.
- Eight of the last nine clashes saw Corinthians failing to keep a clean sheet.
Corinthians vs Flamengo Prediction
Corinthians won the last three home ties on the trot and was unbeaten in 19 of their last 22. Also, they won six of their last eight appearances at this venue. Importantly, they are unbeaten in home matches this Serie A campaign.
Flamengo, on the contrary, has failed to impress on the road. They were winless in seven of their last nine attempts away from home, and their only such win in this competition came against one of the worst of the lot.
As such, expect the home team to at least avoid a loss.
However, taking into account Flamengo’s performance against this opponent in h2h ties over the years, and the fact that they found the back of the net in 22 of their last 24 match-ups with away handicap, backing the BTTS option should bring good returns.
