Flamengo to Win
Unlike previous years when each finalist got to host a game, Copa Libertadores final will from now on be played on pre-determined venue in a single match.
Of the two teams, Flamengo has been the more dominant one in the previous rounds and they’ve been the top favourite to win it all even before the start of the competition. Furthermore, Flamengo beat Palmeiras in three of their last five meetings and they’ve been in better form recently, so our prediction is for Flamengo to win this game and lift the trophy.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Only two of the previous five head-to-head duels between Palmeiras and Flamengo have gone over 2.5 total goals, but we expect to see at least three goals in this match.
After all, both teams have been pretty efficient in Copa Liberatores, but they’ve also averaged most goals per game in the Brazilian Serie A – Flamengo averaged 2.85 goals per game, Palmeiras 2.74 goals per game.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams have scored in three of the last five h2h duels between Palmeiras and Flamengo, so we can see the same thing happening in their upcoming match, even if it is the Copa Libertadores final.
In fact, we can see both teams scoring exactly because it is the final match of the most prestigious competition on the continent. Both teams have a lot of quality and if one team scores, the other will have to push even harder in offence to stay in the game for the trophy.

Palmeiras vs Flamengo preview: Can Palmeiras defend their title?
With three games left to go in their domestic championship, Palmeiras has no chance to claim the title there. However, their fans won’t be disappointed much if Palmeiras manages to win back-to-back titles in Copa Libertadores, a feat so rarely achieved. To get to the final game, Palmeiras knocked out Universidad Catolica, Sao Paulo, and Atletico Mineiro. The team has no injured players at the moment, so they will be able to field their best team in the final.
Unlike Palmeiras, the reigning champions of Brazil still have a theoretical chance to win another title in Serie A, but that’s basically a mission impossible. Flamengo’s best chance to avoid finishing the season without a trophy is to win Copa Libertadores. The team eliminated Defensa y Justicia, Olimpia, and Barcelona in the knockout stages to get to the final. Like their opponents, Flamengo also has a clean bill of health ahead of this match.
