Sporting Cristal vs Flamengo Prediction

Sporting Cristal have been recording decent displays at home of late. They are unbeaten in 9 of the past 10 league affairs. Five of those unbeaten fixtures were spoils. They leaked goals in 8 of those 10 fixtures.

On the other side, Flamengo have won five of their past 10 on road fixtures across all competitions. Unlike Sporting Cristal, we can see Flamengo recording positive displays in competitive outings.

We can also see Flaming goals at a good rate on road. When such a run in possession for them, we can’t expect them to record a negative display in their opening Libertadores fixture.

Therefore, we back Flamengo to seal a win against Sporting Cristal when they both meet at Estadio Alberto Gallardo this Wednesday to play their first Copa Libertadores fixture.
