Coritiba vs Flamengo Prediction

The fact that Coritiba is a promoted side, and the visitor has a better league experience backs up the case in the encounter. Besides, they will meet after a gap of three years and Flamengo has dominated in their h2h meetings earlier in their records.
Furthermore, the teams haven’t scored a goal so far this season. Since they are having trouble finding the back of the net, the winning margin will likely be low.
So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be a suitable option for the punters.
