Flamengo to Win with Handicap (-1)

While the reigning vice-champions of South America have been pretty convincing so far and they are sitting at the top of the standings in their group, they still have to clinch the first place. Meanwhile, Universidad Catolica is third, but their chances of progression are not great.

That being said, both teams have been struggling in their domestic championships so far, but Flamengo is simply a much better team and we can see them winning this game by two or more goals.

Flamengo to Win at Half Time and Full Time

We already said that we expect Flamengo to win the game by two or more goals, so we also expect them to lead at half time before securing the win at the end.

After all, that was the case in the first duel between Flamengo and Universidad Catolica in Chile, so we don’t see any reason why that can’t happen again with Flamengo hosting the game now

Over  2.5 Total Goals

We’ve seen five goals in the first duel between Flamengo and Universidad Catolica in the group stages of Copa Libertadores, so we expect the same thing to happen on Tuesday.

Furthermore, Flamengo averaged 3.75 goals per game in the group this season, while Universidad Catolica averaged 2.75 goals per game in Copa Libertadores so far.

Flamengo vs Universidad Catolica preview: Can the guests put up a fight?


Last year’s finalists of Copa Libertadores are on their way to the next stage of the competition since they currently have ten points from four games and they are three points ahead of the closest team. Meanwhile, the team is struggling at the start of the new season in Serie A with just six points from the first six matches.

Universidad Catolica

The Chilean team has four points from the first four rounds in Copa Libertadores group stages and that’s only enough to put them in third place at the moment, three points behind Talleres de Cordoba and six behind Flamengo. Universidad Catolica is not doing that well in their domestic championship either since they have lost three of their last five games there.
