Flamengo and Palmeiras to Draw

The current champions of Brazil will meet the current winners of the Brazilian Cup in the first round of the new season, and we expect to see an exciting match. The two teams have already met more than a month ago in the Brazilian Super Cup, which ended in a 2-2 draw before Flamengo won on penalties. With that match in mind, we expect to see another close duel and, possibly, another draw. After all, Flamengo has drawn in four of their last five games in all competitions, so we think that the trend can continue.

Flamengo and Palmeiras to Draw at Half Time

Since we expect a draw at the end of the game, we also think that the game could be equal at half time. The two teams are similar in quality and while the home team is the defending champion, Palmeiras is the cup winner. Furthermore, both teams have topped their prospective Copa Libertadores groups, so both teams are in great form. A draw at the half time sounds like a reasonable prediction.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in three of the last five games between Flamengo and Palmeiras, two of which have ended in a draw. In addition to this, both teams have scored in four of the last five Flamengo games in all competitions, so the home team seems to be struggling to keep a clean sheet at the moment. Meanwhile, Palmeiras has kept a clean sheet in four of their last five games across all competitions, but we don’t expect that to happen in an away game against current champions.

Flamengo vs Palmeiras preview: The champions vs cup winners, again

The two teams have already met in the Brazilian Super Cup and the game had to be decided on penalties after 2-2 in regular time. Flamengo eventually won that match, but let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their first-round duel:

Flamengo

The defending champions have a tough task at the start of the new season but the team is in great form at the moment. Flamengo is through to the Top 16 of the Copa Libertadores after topping their group with 12 points and they’ve won the Super Cup of Brazil, as we already mentioned. The team has also won the regional Campeonato Carioca after defeating Fluminense 4-2 on aggregate in the final. Cesar and Thiago Maia are injured and unavailable for the upcoming game.

Palmeiras

Although they’ve finished 7th in the previous edition of the Brazilian Serie A, Palmeiras has managed to win the Brazilian Cup and Copa Libertadores last season. The team has started the new season well, with five wins and a draw in their Copa Libertadores group. The loss in the Brazilian Super Cup to Flamengo after penalties was unfortunate for the team, as well as the 2-0 aggregate loss in the final of Campeonato Paulista A1 to Sao Paulo. The only player on the injury list at the moment is Luan.
