Junior Barranquilla vs Flamengo – Copa Sudamericana : This Wednesday, there will be another 2017 Copa Sudamericana finalist being decided…
Junior and Flamengo will fight to see who will face Independiente. I remind you that the 1st leg finished 2-1 to Flamengo in Rio de Janeiro.
The match should start at 23:45 (London time) at the Metropolitano Roberto Meléndez in Barranquilla.
Junior Barranquilla is having a great season. Currently, they can be considered the best Colombian team, since they finished the first stage of the domestic league at the top of the table.
As for the 2nd stage (play-offs) they faced América de Cali away from home and the match finished on a 0-0 draw last Monday.
On the Copa Sudamericana, Barranquila has eliminated Deportivo Cali, Cerro Porteño and Sport Recife respectively. As for the semi-finals, they have lost to Flamengo on the 1st leg 2-1. In total, they played 7 matches, winning 2, drawing 4 and losing 1.
The club from Rio de Janeiro turns its attention to the Sudamericana after losing 2-1 to Santos in the Brazilian Serie A, and with that, they still haven’t secured a spot in the next Copa Libertadores.
On the 2017 Copa Sudamericana, Flamengo has played 7 matches, winning 5 times and drawing twice, while scoring 20 goals and conceding 6. On their last match against this Barranquilla, they got a comeback win, playing at the Maracanã.
Junior Barranquilla vs Flamengo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Junior Barranquilla has been proving they are a team with quality that, beside having good players technically such as Teo Gutierrez and Chara for example, is well-organized.
That was visible at the Maracanã, especially in the beginning of the match.
Flamengo has a slightly better team, and they are trying to conquer an important title this season, so this is their big chance to cheer up their fans that have expected so much from them this season.
I will go with both teams to score here, because we have two quality teams who have the ability to score. The Colombians need to score and that should open up some space for Flamengo to score and get closer to the final.
