Flamengo vs Gremio
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 19 August 2020
Kick-off at 23:15 UK/ 00:15 CET
The Vultures are the defending champions of the competition, and they easily have been the best team in the league for the past few years. They secured the title the last season in such a dominating manner that they had a lead of 16 points over the second-placed team, by the time it came to an end.
They also had scored a total of 86 goals in the process, while none of the other squads had managed to even touch the 65-goal mark.
However, this time around, they have made a slow start to their campaign, and for the reason will be desperate to win this Wednesday.
They are taking on Renato Portaluppi’s men this week, and considering that the title-holders have a fantastic h2h record against them, expect the reigning champions to secure a much-needed win and calm their fans down.
Flamengo vs Gremio: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Domenec Torrent’s men recorded wins in five of the past six games.
- They have kept clean sheets in four of the former six clashes.
- The latest clash at this venue had ended in a massive 5-0 win for the hosts.
- They had also recorded 14 of the preceding 17 wins at this venue.
- In fact, the combined scorecard for the past three fixtures at this stadium is, 10-1, in favor of the hosts.
Flamengo vs Gremio: Prediction
Torrent’s men have been the best team in the Serie A by a mile the last two years. They have been in terrific form as well lately, disregarding their slow start to this campaign.
In fact, they had won 12 of their former 15 overall fixtures, and had won 28 of their last 30 appearances at this stadium.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in six of their preceding eleven trips on the road. On top of that, they have also been thoroughly dominated by the title-holders in h2h clashes – and particularly so at this stadium.
By the looks of things, expect a winning performance from Flamengo this Wednesday.
