Flamengo vs Fluminense – Brazilian Serie A :Maracanã will host one of the biggest Brazilian derbies, with Flamengo facing Fluminense…
“Fla-Flu” comes at a time when both teams aren’t in great form. Of course, the expectations for the two rivals were different this season.
Flamengo invested millions to build one of the best rosters in the country. As for Fluminense, without money, they invested on some cheap signings combined with some of their core players.
So far, despite some good starts, both of these projects failed. Flamengo failed in every competition. Not even their state championship title serves as redemption at the moment.
As for Fluminense, they were a pleasant surprise in the beginning of the season but now they are on a terrible streak that is starting to put them dangerously close to the relegation zone.

Flamengo vs Fluminense – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Curiously, both Flamengo and Fluminense are depositing a lot of hopes on Copa Sudamericana. Both teams will also face off on that competition.
On the Serie A, Flamengo sits in 7th place with 29 points conquered so far. The team’s poor recent form even forced them to leave the Libertadores’ qualification spots.
With 8 points less than Flamengo, Fluminense sits in 12th place with 21 points. That’s just one spot above the relegation zone and just 1 point separating them from Sport, which is the first team on the relegation zone.
Despite the gap on the league table, I don’t see such a difference in terms of quality to justify this odds’ disparity.
I believe that the value is on the handicaps favouring Fluminense here, in what should be a tough match.
