Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 29 May 2022
Kick-off at 22:00 UK / 23:00 CET
Round 8 of Brazil Serie A will kick-start this week as the mid-side Fluminense play host to Flamengo. These two sides will lock horns at Maracanã this Sunday.
Fluminense is at the 7th spot on the standing with 11 points from 7 games. They won 3 games while having lost and drawn 2 games each. The hosts currently leads the Copa Sudamericana promotion spot and the hosts have seen netting frequently but they tend to concede more of the same.
The home side will be looking for a repeat result of the 1-0 Serie A win over Fortaleza. Their most recent results highlight the fact that much respect should be given to the Fluminense defense as the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their previous 6 outings stands just 3.
On the other hand, Flamengo resides at the 14th position on the table with 9 points. Of the 7 matches played, they won and lost 2 times each while having drawn on thrice other occasions. Their struggles at the offensive end of the pitch has also been another key factor as they have netted only 7 times goals so far.
Flamengo go into this encounter following on from a 2-1 Copa Libertadores win against Sporting Cristal in their most recent game. A series of effective showings by their defensive unit has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded stands only 4 from their past 6 fixtures combined.
