Mengao head into the clash as clear form favourites following the run of three subsequent victories. Such thread left Mauricio Barbieri’s side four points clear at the top of the Serie A standings. The rock-solid defense is what brought earned Flamengo such a phenomenal start to the campaign. The nominal visitors kept their net untouched in last four matches in all competitions, a streak that stretches to mid-May and the goalless draw with River Plate away from home in the Copa Libertadores derby.

Fluminense vs Flamengo: Head-to-head

Flamengo were the more successful outfit in the history of the Fla-Flu Rio de Janeiro derby.

Mengao lead the head to head tie by six wins coming into landmark 60th encounter with Fluminense.

Both teams were on the scoresheet in five of last seven head to head contests.

Fluminense vs Flamengo: Predictions

The hosts also made a promising start to the season under Abel Braga, but they will come into this low on confidence after clinching just one point from last two league outings. Braga’s team disappointed heavily on Monday evening when they fell to the rock-bottomed Parana 2-1 away from home. Team’s star man Pedro skipped the clash through injury and he is expected to miss the derby with Flamengo as well just three days later.

Fluminense are short of attacking options without Pedro in the squad and we just can’t see them finding the back of the net against the rock-solid defensive line of Flamengo’s here. Mengao are thus worth backing to win the match at 1.66 as well as to keep a clean sheet at 2.10.
