Flamengo vs Botafogo for the Brazilian Serie A championship match on Sunday at Jornalista Mário Filho Stadium.
Next Sunday, July 28th, 2019, Flamengo and Botafogo face each other for a match for the 12th round of Serie A (Brazil). The game kicks off at 20:00 at the Maracanã Stadium (Rio de Janeiro). The 3rd ranked against the 8th in the table.
Flamengo comes with two bad results, a 2-0 loss against Emelec in the Copa Libertadores and a frustrating 1×1 draw against Corinthians in the league.
In their last home game in Serie A and Jorge Jesus’s debut, they saw them score 6-on-1 goals in the 90th minute. An impressive offensive capability with twenty-nine goal attempts, sixteen of which made life difficult for the goalkeeper.
Botafogo is currently in a losing streak in their last four games. Their last away game was a disappointing draw, while at home they suffered a 1-0 loss to second-placed Santos.
Clashes between the two teams
Three of the last five matches have seen Flamengo win.
The last clash ended 2 to 1 in favour of Flamengo.
Botafogo has not conceded a single goal in their last five matches, while Flamengo has two games without conceding.
The hosts have been untamed at home so far in the championship and have scored sixteen goals while conceding just five.
Visitors, on the other hand, have been inconsistent in securing a win in away games.
In the 5 home matches, Flamengo was winning at halftime, and 80% (4) matches so offering an odd of 2 and knowing the teams of Jorge Jesus and the offensive power of Flamengo I see a lot of value in betting Flamengo winning at the interval!
