Palmeiras vs Flamengo
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Thursday, 14 June 2018
Kick-Off at 01:00 UK / 02:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Parque, Sao Paulo.

A real buzz is expected in and around Allianz Parque on Wednesday evening when Palmeiras host Flamengo in the most exciting of clashes in the mid-week round of Brasilieirao. Mengao will come into the game in much higher spirits, but last term’s runners-up will certainly represent a massive test challenge to their five-win streak in Serie A.

Mauricio Barbieri is doing a phenomenal job with Mengao in this season of Serie A. The team is six points clear at the top of the standings after winning 8 and losing only 1 of their 11 opening ties in the league. The schedule during the five-win thread was by no means an easy one since Flamengo played the likes of Corinthians and Fluminense in the process. They did have an easier fixture on Sunday evening when Diego and Felipe Vizeu contributed to a comfortable 2-0 victory over league newcomers Parana at Maracana.

Palmeiras vs Flamengo: Head-to-head

  • Palmeiras lead the head to head tie by five victories coming into their 32nd encounter with Flamengo.
  • Verdao are unbeaten in last seven clashes with Flamengo, winning three along the way.
  • Palmeiras scored two or more goals in seven of last eight outings with Mengao.

Palmeiras vs Flamengo: Predictions

Palmeiras’ impressive attacking form in H2H matches with Mengao could easily come to an end here given the visitors have been very tough to break down lately. Flamengo kept six clean sheets on the bounce in all competitions which is why we have to fancy the 1.61 odds offered for Palmeiras not to score more than a single goal in the Matchday derby.

The hosts have generally played hot and cold since the start of the season. Such statement was best confirmed at the weekend when Verdao shockingly failed to capitalize on impressive back-to-back wins over Sao Paulo and Gremio playing only a 2-2 draw away at Ceara. We expect Machado’s side to be much more solid defensively with the likes of Bruno Henrique and Felipe Melo back in the squad after suspensions.

In all, we expect a very tight affair on such an important occasion for both sides. The Under 2.5 goals FT is a standout bet in such circumstances with the odds set at 1.72 odds.

Palmeiras vs Flamengo: Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.72
  • Palmeiras Under 1.5 Team Goals @ 1.61.
