Our Prediction:

Flamengo – SE Palmeiras Match Prediction | 28-08-2019 15:00

Having also won 12 of their 15 home games so far this season, its clear for all to see that confidence is at peak levels in home ranks coming into this one. 3 wins in a row is an impressive enough statistic, but Flamengo have been putting in some dominant showings in recent weeks, winning said games whilst scoring a huge average of 3.33 goals a game and not conceding a single goal.

The hosts have generally played hot and cold since the start of the season. We expect Machados side to be much more solid defensively with the likes of Bruno Henrique and Felipe Melo back in the squad after suspensions. 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.

Flamengo boss Dorival Junior has done extremely will to reignite Flamengos title bid since coming in and now has the team looking as strong as theyve looked at any stage this season. The side had led the way for the first half of the campaign under Mauricio Barbieri but then dropped off significantly, but their newly found revival now has them in a position from which theyll be 1 point behind Palmeiras should they beat them on Saturday.

Head To Head

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.

Flamengo boss Dorival Junior has done extremely will to reignite Flamengos title bid since coming in and now has the team looking as strong as theyve looked at any stage this season.

Said result has all but ended Verdaos dreams of running out kings of South America, barring any miracle in the return leg on Thursday, but for now all focus can only be on this trip to Rio. The same cannot be said for Palmeiras, who had their seemingly never ending momentum whacked out of them via a devastating 2-0 defeat away to Boca Juniors in a midweek Copa Libertadores semi-final clash.

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. 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. Mauricio Barbieri is doing a phenomenal job with Mengao in this season of Serie A. 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.
