Palmeiras vs Flamengo Prediction
Palmeiras were defeated by Fluminense the last match-day on the road. The low goal-scoring affair saw the hosts scoring one goal, while the visitors failed to find the back of the net even once.
In the meantime, Flamengo scripted an inspiring comeback in front of the home crowd, against Ceara the previous game week. After trailing by one goal for quite some time, the Libertadores champions fired in four goals in a row to take the win by force.
As the reigning Serie A champions, and Cope Libertadores winners meet on the pitch, an exciting goal-riot is surely on the cards. Pride will drive both teams to go after the win even though both have secured qualification to the next edition of the continental tournament.
Moreover, Flamengo are the best offensive team in the whole contest and have scored a total of 77 goals this league campaign. Keep note that the next best is just 57. They are sure to test the home defense thoroughly.
On the other hand, we have the hosts who are desperate to close out their season on a positive note. They do have the confidence of the home advantage, and the tag of being the reigning Serie A champions.
By all means, we can expect goals from both teams, and certainly more than one in number by the end of the ninety minutes.
