Flamengo vs Internacional – Brazilian Serie A : Flamengo hosts Internacional this Saturday at the Maracanã on a Brazilian Serie A’s match.
This is one of the biggest Brazilian derbies. With two teams that combined have more than a dozen of national titles conquered. Both teams’ realities are a bit different now. Especially in terms of investments.
Flamengo has been spending a lot of money in recent years but hasn’t been winning many titles. And that naturally generates a lot of pressure on the team.
So much that even with Flamengo leading the Brazilian Serie A with 7 points conquered, the team was almost assaulted on the flight to their match against Ceará on the last round.
Their fans want titles and their poor campaign in the Copa Libertadores isn’t very helpful.

Internacional on the other hand is making their return to the Serie A after an annoying season in the Serie B.
The truth is that the team still hasn’t found its best football. And the level shown this year with early eliminations from the Campeonato Gaucho and from the Copa do Brasil show that.
On the Brazilian Serie A, the team has 4 points conquered, with a victory over Bahia and a draw against Cruzeiro.
Flamengo vs Internacional – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Besides that, the team lost to Palmeiras away from home. I believe this will be a low-scoring affair. Both Flamengo and Cruzeiro haven’t been delivering that much offensively and that gets clearer and clearer with every match.
Inter should play even tighter here and Flamengo will have troubles breaking their defensive wall.
