Santa Fé vs Flamengo – Copa Libertadores: On a decisive match in
Colombia, Independiente Santa Fé and Flamengo face off.
Whoever slips up will be heavily pressured on the last 2 matches.
Surely Santa Fé comes into this match with more responsibility.
The Colombian team is yet to win on the competition. They have 3 draws in 3 matches and they are 2 points away from Flamengo and River Plate.
On the previous match, they snatched a good draw in Rio de Janeiro, but let’s be honest, they were lucky to escape without being battered.
If they want to have any chance of advancing, they have to win this match, because a loss here, along with a River’s victory would mean their goodbye to the competition.
There is a tense environment on the backstage, with their manager fired and a streak of 6 winless matches that was broken last Sunday, but their exhibitions still aren’t convincing.
Flamengo is on a similar situation to their Colombian rivals.
The team that has beaten América-MG by 2-0 on the past weekend in the Brazilian Serie A comes into this match under fire from their fans, against board and players.
The environment is not good and even if the team is in 1st place, their situation is delicate, since on the last 3 matches of this group stage, they will play 2 of them away from home, with one of them being against River at the Monumental de Nuñes.
Who comes into this match in good form is Henrique Dourado, the center forward who scored on the draw against this same Santa Fé last week and that scored twice on the weekend.
Santa Fé vs Flamengo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I predict a match with goals. Santa Fé in my opinion will play their most important match here. If they win, they are in the fight, but if they lose, it’s their goodbye. I believe that the Colombians should have a more aggressive approach, even if it is more dangerous.
Flamengo has a team that sometimes is too passive, without reaction, but they tend to be very strong in transition.
I believe that both teams will score, but I find this bet safer.
