Flamengo vs Atletico GO
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 31 July 2022
Kick-off at 0:30 UK / 1:30 CET
Round 20 of Brazil Serie A is set for this weekend as Flamengo play host to the relegation fighting Atletico GO where both these sides differ by 13 points and are separated by 11 places. These two teams will be seen clashing at Maracanã, this Sunday.
Flamengo is at the 6th spot on the standing with 30 points from 19 games. They won 9 times in the league while drew on 3 and lost on 7 other occasions. The hosts are currently residing in the Copa Libertadores qualifier zone and they need just 2 more points to sneak into the direct group stage within the top four.
The hosts come into this on the back of a 2-1 win away at newly promoted Avai, last the weekend. Following the sacking of Paulo Sousa and replacing of the former Poland manager with Dorival Junior has led to an immediate much needed improvement in Flamengo’s fortunes.
On the other hand, Atletico GO resides at the 18th position on the table with 17 points. Of the 19 matches played, they won 4 times in the league while having drawn 5 and have lost on 10 other occasions. They really need to look onto their offensive side as they seems to be lacking finishing quality, netting only 18 times so far.
The visitors will go into the meeting following on from a 1-0 Copa do Brasil win over Corinthians in their last outing. A tendency of at least one team not managing to score in games involving Atletico Goianiense has become noticeable of late.
