Analysis of Flamengo

After 10 wins, 9 draws and 7 losses, the home team is in the 7th position, havinf won 39 points so far. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Ponte Preta by (1‑0), after in the previous match they have tied (1‑1) at home, against Avaí. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses in away matches; against 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses at their stadium. In the last 10 home league matches Flamengo has a record of 6 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 20 points out of 30 possible. In their home league matches, the most frequent final score was the 2‑0 (5 out of 13 matches). They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 11 of their 26 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

Flamengo is not going through its best moment in the Brazilian Championship, and returns to play at home after having suffered another away defeat in the competition. Now, the team is looking to control the match in order to conquer a positive result and compensate for the terrible sequence of four defeats away from home, having not scored a goal in the last three matches. However, as home team, Flamengo still has one of the best campaigns of the championship, condition in which it has the third best attack. The team also stands out for having the best ball possession average and being the second that misses the least passes, which facilitates the work of the defensive and offensive sectors. One of the team's highlights in recent rounds has been midfielder Everton Ribeiro.

Confirmed Lineup: Diego Alves, Réver, Rodinei, Juan, Pará, Lucas Paquetá, Éverton Ribeiro, Éverton, Rômulo, Márcio Araújo, O. Berrío.
Coach: R. Rueda.

Analysis of Fluminense

The away team is currently in the 16th position of the league, with 31 points won, after 7 wins, 10 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Palmeiras, by (0‑1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Grêmio, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 20 goals scored and 21 conceded; against 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 19 goals scored and 18 conceded. In the last 10 away league matches Fluminense has a record of 2 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 12 points out of 30 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 26 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 12 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 13 away matches for this competition there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 6 of their 17 goals between minutes (31'‑45'); they have conceded 7 of their 18 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Fluminense is going through a bad moment in the Brazilian Championship, since it comes from five rounds without winning and now accumulates three consecutive defeats, when its attack scored just one goal. Now the team goes to the field seeking a rather unlikely win as it has only three victories to date. However, away from home the team has one of the most efficient attacks of the competition, having scored seventeen goals in thirteen games. The team is characterized by an opportunist offensive sector, since it is the third that less finalizes, and still has managed to convert in goal. For this match, the coach will not be able to count on the defender Frazan, who is suspended.

Confirmed Lineup: Diego Cavalieri, Gum, Lucas, Reginaldo, Marlon, Gustavo Scarpa, Douglas, Henrique Dourado, J. Sornoza, Marcos Júnior, Richard.
Coach: Abel Braga.

Betting suggestion:

This clash should not be one of the most balanced of this round of the Brazilian Championship, since, although it is a classic of football in Rio de Janeiro, puts in the field two teams that have been doing different campaigns throughout the competition.
Flamengo bets heavily on counterattacks and often creates many opportunities, but fails to finish, while its defense fails in aerial balls and the interception of long balls, and also made some individual mistakes. 
Fluminense attacks a lot by the wings, but its defense shows a lot of fragility, especially in holding the counterattacks and in the coverage of the sides. 
So, by playing at home, where it has shown strength, against a defensively inconsistent team, it is a good option to bet on the victory of Flamengo.
