Flamengo vs Palmeiras Predictions: Palmeiras Wretched Away Form a Huge Factor

OddsDigger's Tips

Two of the Brazilian Serie A’s big hitters square up on Thursday in a compelling looking fixture at the Ilha do Urubu. Our Flamengo vs Palmeiras preview analyses a match be-tween two teams chasing Copa Libertadores qualification. As well as bragging rights, the third spot is also on offer for the victors so tensions should be high in Rio de Janeiro come kick-off.

Match Preview

The home club’s last match before our Flamengo vs Palmeiras betting tips was a 1-1 draw in Cruzeiro. That result made it no wins in two for manager Zé Ricardo. Before that brace of setbacks, Flamengo had strung together six successive wins. It’s worth noting that they have the second best defensive statistics in Serie A.

  • Palestino 2-5 Flam.
  • Vasco da Gama 0-1 Flam.
  • Flam. 0-1 Gremio
  • Cruzeiro 1-1 Flam.

Before we detail our Flamengo vs Palmeiras predictions below, let’s take a closer look at the visitor’s record on the road. Despite their impressive overall points haul so far, Palmeiras per-formances away from home have been rocky, to say the least. Cuca’s team have lost five of seven on their travels, making them outsiders with bookmakers every time they leave the Allianz Parque.

  • Barcelona (Ecu) 1-0 Palm.
  • Cruzeiro 3-1 Palm.
  • Palm. 0-2 Corinthians
  • Palm.4-2 Vitoria

Flamengo vs Palmeiras Prediction and Betting Advice

It might be a little unfair of me to say Palmeiras are sitting in a false position in Serie A, but their away record is bound to catch up with them sooner rather than later. As are their poor defensive numbers in general: only six teams have conceded more and they have kept just one clean sheet in seven. For those reasons, a home victory is the opening se-lection in our Flamengo vs Palmeiras picks. If you are thinking of dipping your toes into the goals markets, then taking over 2.5 goals would be a useful bet.
