Millonarios vs Fluminense to Draw
While Millonarios are in full swing in their domestic championship where they have won seven games in a row, the Brazilian Serie A is yet to start. Of course, Fluminense is not sitting idle since they are playing Campeonato Carioca, where they have won seven of their first eight games.
Still, that competition is not as competitive as Serie A and it is not wrong to ask the question how fit Fluminense players are at the moment. But Brazilian teams are usually so above other South American teams, so we tend to bet on them in most cases. All things considered, a draw in this match sounds like the best bet.
Millonarios vs Fluminense to Draw at Half Time
Since we expect this match to end in a draw, we can also see them being tied at half time. After all, a draw is the most common half time result for matches that end without a winner.
Another reason why we expect a draw at half time is the fact that we don’t expect to see many goals in this match, so a scoreless draw at half time sounds realistic.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
As we already mentioned, we don’t see this game ending with a lot of goals, so our next prediction is for this match to go under 2.5 total goals.
After all, Millonarios have averaged just 1.38 goals per game so far in Colombian Primera A, while Fluminense averaged 2.00 goals per game last season in Serie A.
Millonarios vs Fluminense preview: A very interesting matchup
After reaching the finals of Torneo Apertura and missing them by one point in Torneo Finalizacion last season, Millonarios were second in overall standings in Primera A and that puts them into the second stage of qualifiers for Copa Libertadores. The team is in good form since they are currently second in Torneo Apertura after eight rounds and they are on a four-game winning streak as well.
The team from Rio de Janeiro was seventh in the Brazilian Serie A last season, two points behind Bragantino and a direct spot in Copa Libertadores group stages. In any case, the team is currently playing games in the regional Campeonato Carioca, where they’ve won seven of their eight games. Although this competition is not as competitive as Serie A, Fluminense seems to be in good form right now.
