Corinthians vs Flamengo
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 30th July 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Arena Corinthians.
Arena Corinthians is set to host the derby of the Matchday No 17 in Brazilian Serie A as the league leaders are about to tackle the fourth-placed Flamengo in the most interesting clash of the week in Campeonato Brasilierao.
Timao have been the most consistent side in the competition ever since the start of the season.
Fabio Carille’s men are eight points clear at the top after they managed to return to the winning ways by beating Fluminense 0-1 on the road last Sunday.
Corinthians will come into the game in high spirits following their mid-week’s Copa Sudamericana victory over Colombian Patriotas Boyaca (2-0).
Flamengo have also been in action in mid-week when they managed to secure the advancement to the semifinal of Copa do Brasil in spite of a 4-2 defeat to Santos at Estadio Urbano Caldeira.
However, Ze Ricardo just can’t seem to be able to find the solution for his team’s poor defensive displays as Urubu failed to keep a clean sheet in five consecutive matches in all competitions.
Corinthians vs Flamengo: Head to head
The head to head statistics is all tied at 13 wins for each of the teams ahead of their 35th meeting.
Three of their last four H2H encounters saw at least three goals scored.
Corinthians vs Flamengo: Prediction
Corinthians have not suffered a single defeat in last 31 games in all competitions and we simply have to see them as favourites here.
