Flamengo host Fluminense for their Matchday 27 clash on Thursday evening hoping to bounce back after two narrow losses and return to fine form in front of the home fans, outclassing the recently struggling rivals and possibly even sending them into the relegation zone.
Mengao have seen losses at Cruzeiro and Ponte Preta over the past three weeks but they’ve been a much better side at Maracana, earning a four-match unbeaten streak since early September with two wins and two draws on the record in their last four outings.
They’ve improved defensively and conceded just two goals in their last five outings, which will surely be worrying for the visitors who have been largely dropping points for their lack of consistency up front and failing to regularly score goals in the process.
Fluminense have suffered four straight losses since mid-September, beaten by Atlético PR, LDU Quito, Palmeiras, and Gremio. Despite going through to the next round of the Cup and seriously challenging both Palmeiras and Gremio, the streak will do no good for their morale and we do believe it will be very hard to bounce back in the city derby.
They have also failed to beat Flamengo in any of their last four head-to-head clashes since April 2017, as their rivals earned two draws and two wins in the process, which surely sees the home side betting favourites once again and pressure on manager Abel Braga, who has been leading the side in over 200 games, mounting.
Both sides have been putting on quality defensive displays recently and we now expect another narrow clash at Estadio Jornalista Mario Filho, which could prove decisive for both sides’ ambitions – where Flamengo look to break into the league’s top 6 and Fluminense chase a top 12 spot with Chapecoense just a point clear of them.
