Flamengo to win
Fla has been playing like a team that aspires to the top places, for example, the draw against the reigning champions of America. Considering that the home side has not shown a good level, we think that Flamengo will not only keep their unbeaten record but will take all three points.
Over 2.5 Goals
Flamengo’s defensive line is enjoying a sweet moment, scoring in most of their matches. Athletico Paranaense will play at home again and will surely take the opportunity to score for the first time.
So we are expecting a spectacle full of goals.
BTTS – Yes
Before the goalless draw against Palmeiras, Fla had three straight games putting the ball back in the net. On the other hand, the home side scored five goals in the Copa do Brasil, so we predict that both will score in the next match.
Athletico Paranaense vs Flamengo Preview: Paranaense is looking for their first points
Athletico Paranaense has failed to build on their good start to the Copa Libertadores in the Brasileirao, losing both of their matches. They must now face a Flamengo side that has had a better start to the league.
In the first two games, El Furacao has conceded five goals and has failed to score their first goal of the campaign. In their last league outing, they hosted Athletico Mineiro who ran out 1-0 winners, although they could have scored more.
Although they are currently third in the group, Flamengo has not started expectedly, having already dropped four points with two draws and only one win. The coach Paulo Sosa will have a difficult challenge before the third matchday of Copa Libertadores.
In the previous match, Fla faced a tough Palmeiras, who is the current Libertadores champion, in a match where no harm would come to them. Both teams did not risk too much in defense and although there were many shots, most of them were not on target.
