Flamengo vs Cruzeiro: Flamengo and Cruzeiro will take part in this Brazilian Serie A’s derby this Wednesday…
There’s one thing that ties the two teams – The expectation at the beginning of the year of great campaigns and positive results in 2017.
Analysing now, we can see that Cruzeiro has been much more successful than Flamengo on the season.
The team from Minas Gerais conquered the Copa do Brasil and curiously, after that, finally geared up in the Brazilian Serie A.
If they had started this reaction in the league a bit sooner, Cruzeiro might have been able to fulfill the expectations of fighting for the title.
Besides that, after the Copa do Brasil title, many imagined that Cruzeiro would just abandon the Serie A.
But that wasn’t the case. Cruzeiro is in 5th already with 51 points and they are coming off a win against Atlético Paranaense.

Flamengo…Flamengo…After an historical reaction on the Sudamericana against Fluminense that culminated with the qualification from the team, everyone expected a change in posture.
But against Grêmio we saw old Flamengo with the same old problems. The team took the lead but ended up being battered by Grêmio and the team is once again in crisis.
Flamengo vs Cruzeiro – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Even the spot on the Copa Libertadores is starting to be in jeopardy since Flamengo has dropped to 7th place with 47 points.
This is a match that involves a certain rivalry since we should remind the fact that both of these teams have played on the Copa do Brasil final this year, with Cruzeiro lifting the trophy.
Winless on the last 3 rounds and outside the Copa Libertadores’ qualification zone, Flamengo should have the initiative.
Which can be fatal against an organized team like Cruzeiro. This is an ideal match for both teams to score.
