Penarol vs Flamengo
Date: Thursday, 9 May 2019
Kick-Off 01:30 UK / 02:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Campeon del Siglo (Montevideo).
Penarol seriously halted their push for the knockout stage of the competition with a shocking 3-1 defeat away at group underdogs San Jose two weeks ago. Uruguayan champions are now lock on nine points with Brazilian runners-up Flamengo at the top of the Group D standings. Nevertheless, teams are just two points above third-placed LDU Quito who have an easy home fixture upcoming in the last round.
This is why we expect a huge buzz in and around Estadio Campeon del Siglo on Wednesday evening as this match will likely send one of these two likes to Copa Sudamericana football. Both outfits have their own weapons in the final third and we can expect a super-interesting clash in Montevideo.
Penarol vs Flamengo: Head-to-head
This will be the fourth head to head encounter between the two likes.
Penarol won each of past three meetings with Mengao with the identical 1-0 scoreline.
The streak includes this term’s 0-1 victory for Manyas in April this year.
Penarol vs Flamengo: Prediction
Flamengo conceded at least a goal in each of opening three fixtures of the new Serie A season. They are up against a side which rarely dropped points on the home curt in Copa Libertadores. Penarol have an amazing record of eight wins and one defeat in past nine home outings in this competition.
They kept five clean sheets in last six home outings in Copa Libertadores. This is why we have to recognize a massive value in backing the hosts to lose as one of the safest bets of the day at 1.57 odds.
Mengao fell 2-1 away at LDU Quito in the previous round. They drew 1-1 away at Sao Paulo in weekend’s Serie A clash. Braver punters can try with the home win at 3.00 odds, while the hosts are also worth backing to net two or more goals in the game at 3.25.
