Venue: Estadio Luso Brasiliero, Rio de Janeiro.
Round number nine in Brazil Serie A is bringing us a big clash, a derby match of current table leaders Flamengo and the reigning champions Corinthians, who are currently third. The odds might suggest that we are about to see a one-sided match. Flamengo are big favorites for the win, being priced at 1.66 to beat the opposition and continue the impeccable campaign.
Led by an expert Mauricio Barbieri, the Flames have become candidate number one to lift the title this season. One of the most popular players in history of Peru, Paolo Guerrero is member of the offensive line, but he managed to bag only one goal so far. Youngster Vinicius Junior has had much more success s his name appeared on four score sheets. If you are after some bets in goal scorers market, he should definitely be your top choice.
Corinthians were not looking good in the last month. The first defeat happened in front of the home crowd against Millionarios in Copa Libertadores, followed with another against Internacional. The reigning champions were big favorites in both of those duels. The bad streak has ended on Thursdayh night with a narrow 1-0 home win against America Mineiro.
