Flamengo vs Corinthians for the Brazilian Serie A championship match on Sunday at Arena Corinthians Stadium.
Next Sunday, July 21st, 2019, Corinthians and Flamengo are facing a game to count for the 11th round of Serie A (Brazil). The game kick-off is scheduled for 20:00 at the Arena Corinthians Stadium (São Paulo). The 8th ranked against the 3rd of the table.
Flamengo has won a place on the podium for the time being, but the main reason for that is home games. On this day of play, though, they do not have that luxury. They managed to record only a single victory in the league away from home, and this was against one of the league’s weakest teams, the CSA.
The opponents, Corinthians, in turn, have a game behind and is already in a promising position on the table. With the advantage of playing at home on Sunday, fans are looking forward to a win and continuous increase in the league table.
Another plus point is that they are unbeaten at this spot in the league games this season.
Clashes between the two teams
Flamengo has won the last three games. 18 of the previous 23 wins went to the home team. 9 of the last 11 victories at this location went to the hosts. 8 of the last 9 clashes have seen Corinthians concede goals
Corinthians have won their last three home matches and were unbeaten in 19 of their previous 22. Besides, they have won six of their last eight games at this location. Importantly, they are undefeated in home games in this Series A campaign.
Flamengo, on the other hand, could not impress in the away matches. They were without wins in seven of their last nine games away from home, and their only success came against one of the worst in the group.
However, taking into account the performance of Flamengo against this opponent and knowing the teams of Jorge Jesus, I think we will have a spectacle with many goals. Bet on over 2.5 goals.
