Flamengo to Win
The Brazilian team was the absolute favourite in the first leg and they justified it with a 2-0 win. Now they travel to Ecuador for the rematch and Barcelona will certainly put up a fight and try to surprise them. But we don’t think that they have the quality to avoid another defeat against the defending champions of Brazil, so our prediction is for Flamengo to win this game.
Barcelona and Flamengo to Draw at Half Time
While we do believe that Flamengo will get another win to secure their spot in the Copa Libertadores final, we don’t expect them to have an easy job against Barcelona. With that in mind, our next prediction for this match is for Barcelona and Flamengo to draw at half time despite the fact that Flamengo led at half time in all three of their previous meetings.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams scored in one of the previous three h2h duels between Barcelona and Flamengo. While that’s not great, we still expect both teams to score in this game since Barcelona is down two goals and they will have to attack from the start if they want to have any chance of reaching the final. Consequently, Flamengo will have more room for counter-attacks and both teams scoring in this game sounds like a good bet to us.

Barcelona vs Flamengo preview: Can Barcelona upset the favourites?
The home team will have to chase a two-goal deficit, which should make for an interesting match. So, let’s check out the teams in more detail now:
The current champions of Brazil are the main favourite to win Copa Libertadores this season and that’s not really a surprise given their results in the first two knock-out stages, as well as their current two-goal lead in the semifinals. Flamengo is also fourth in the Brazilian Serie A at the moment, with eleven points and two games behind Atletico Mineiro. Also, the team reached the semi-finals of Copa do Brasil too.
After the loss in the first leg, Barcelona will have to find a way to overcome a two-goal deficit against one of the best teams in South America. A nearly impossible task, but miracles do happen and at least the team will get a chance to try and do this in front of their fans. Barcelona is currently in the seventh place in the standings of the second stage of Ecuadorian league, with four wins and three losses.
