Flamengo to Win

Despite winning the title last season and constantly being at or near the top in recent years, Flamengo didn’t have much success in matches against Sao Paulo. In fact, Sao Paulo has beaten Flamengo in their last four meetings and some of those wins were pretty convincing. However, our prediction for this match is for Flamengo to win the game – they are in great form and this seems like the perfect opportunity to break their bad streak against Sao Paulo.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The last four head-to-head duels between Flamengo and Sao Paulo have gone over 2.5 total goals and there’s no reason to expect anything different in this game. Also, Flamengo averages 2.6 goals per game in Serie A this season and they’ve been especially efficient lately, averaging almost three goals per game in their last five league matches. That being said, Sao Paulo averaged just 1.67 goals per game so far in the league, but we still expect them to honor the tradition and play a high-scoring game against Flamengo.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in three of the previous four matches between Flamengo and Sao Paulo, so we expect to see the same thing in their upcoming game. After all, both teams are in good form at the moment and that usually means that both teams can find the net, at least in our experience.

Flamengo vs Sao Paulo: One of the biggest derbies in Brazil

It’s always exciting when two big names of the Brazilian football meet, regardless of their current form. Still, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their upcoming duel.

Flamengo

The current champions of Brazil are doing very well this season and especially in the past few weeks. In the league, Flamengo is currently sixth, but they are two games behind most other clubs in Serie A. Also, Flamengo eliminated Defensa y Justicia with a couple of wins to reach the Copa Libertadores quarter-finals. All in all, the team has four wins in the last five matches in all competitions and they are completely healthy at the moment.

Sao Paulo

Things are not going that great for Sao Paulo this season, at least in Serie A. The team only has two wins in the first twelve matches, both of which recorded in the last three rounds. In any case, Sao Paulo is currently in the 16th position in the league, one spot above the relegation zone. On the bright side, the team just secured a spot in the quarter-finals of Copa Libertadores after they eliminated Racing Club 4-2 on aggregate. So, it seems that Sao Paulo is finally getting into form.
