Fluminense vs Flamengo Prediction
In terms of goals, both teams have been averaging at one goal so far. The host has averaged 1.1 goals while the reigning champions averaged 1.3 goals in the league this season until now. With these stats, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters.
Having a six-game unbeaten streak in the campaign and a winning streak for the past three clashes in the schedule will probably put the visitors in front. Besides, the Flu is not at their best in the league or at home to conjure a win against the titleholders.
There is no doubt in the game moving to an away win in full-time. With the home team struggling with their form, the visitors are likely to find space in the middle. The tips for Flamengo to win either half will also come in handy along with the away win.
