Our favourite Flamengo vs Sporting Cristal betting predictions and picks

If you are looking for some help to find the right bet for the Flamengo vs Sporting Cristal duel, you’ve come to the right place:

Sporting Cristal to Win with Handicap (+3)

While we can see Flamengo winning this game despite the fact that they already secured the first place, we can see them winning by one or maybe two goals.

After all, they only had one win by three goals in the group and with Sporting Cristal fighting for third place in the standings, we can see them putting up a good fight in this game. So, we suggest betting on Sporting Cristal with a three-goal handicap.

Flamengo and Sporting Cristal to Draw at Half Time

Since we don’t expect Flamengo to dominate the game as the bookies do, we can also see these two teams being tied at half time because of it and we feel it’s worth trying this bet out.

In any case, the odds on this market are simply too good for us to pass, even though we are aware that Flamengo is clearly a huge favourite to lead at half time.

Under 3.5 Total Goals

Although Flamengo has gone over 3.5 total goals in three of their five games in the group, we can see this match going under that line, especially since Flamengo already secured the top spot.

In addition to this, we only saw two goals in the first duel between Flamengo and Sporting Cristal in Copa Libertadores this season, so we would hardly be surprised if that happened again.

After all, both teams scored in four of the five Emelec matches in the group, while the same is true for three of the five games played by Independiente in Copa Libertadores group stages this season.

Flamengo vs Sporting Cristal preview: Can the guests put up a fight here?

Flamengo

With just nine points from the first seven games in the new season of Brazilian Serie A, Flamengo is currently not doing that well in their domestic league, which they won just a couple of seasons ago. However, Flamengo absolutely dominated their group in Copa Libertadores and they already secured first place with one round left to be played.

Sporting Cristal

At the moment, Sporting Cristal is in the last place in their Copa Libertadores group with two points, but Universidad Catolica has four points and Sporting could overtake them in the last round and get into the Top 16 stage of Copa Sudamericana. Meanwhile, the team is in good form in the Peruvian Apertura since they are without a loss in the last six matches.
