Flamengo and Athletico Paranaense: A Riveting Rematch Awaits in Brasileiro Serie A

Key Stats
– Flamengo remain unbeaten in their last five competitive matches, signalling a turnaround in form.
– Athletico Paranaense have drawn five of their last six Serie A outings, showcasing their fighting spirit.
– Bruno Henrique boasts eight goals against Athletico Paranaense, making him Flamengo’s key man for the clash.

As we enter Matchday 23 of the 2023 Brasileiro Serie A, the stakes couldn’t be higher. Flamengo, the pride of Rio, square off against Athletico Paranaense in what’s dubbed as a thrilling rematch of the 2022 Copa Libertadores finalists. The scenic Estadio Kleber Andrade is primed to witness this battle.

Form Guide and Recent Events

Flamengo, fresh off an exhilarating 2-1 victory against table-toppers Botafogo, have propelled themselves into a commendable fourth position. This win, coupled with their newfound momentum—being unbeaten in their last five competitive matches—has seen Flamengo emerge as the dark horse of the campaign.

However, their recent resurgence wasn’t without its hiccups. The well-publicised confrontation between assistant coach Pablo Fernandez and striker Pedro created ripples across the footballing community. Since then, the atmosphere within the team has changed. There’s a newfound unity, evident in their gameplay. With only a two-point gap separating them from second-placed Palmeiras, the sky is the limit.

Athletico Paranaense’s journey has been marred by inconsistency. Having drawn five of their last six Serie A matches, they seem to be teetering in terms of form. Still, they remain a formidable side, just one point shy of qualifying for the 2024 Libertadores.

Managerial Mastery

Jorge Sampaoli, Flamengo’s master tactician, has been instrumental in revitalising the side. Even amidst controversies, his side has shown resilience, winning three of their last four matches and securing a berth in the Copa do Brasil final. Despite their defensive frailties, with Flamengo conceding a concerning 27 goals (tied highest among top half teams), Sampaoli’s strategy and mid-block system promise an intriguing tactical battle.

On the other side, Wesley Carvalho’s Athletico Paranaense has shown glimpses of brilliance but has faltered in crucial moments, often relinquishing the lead in away fixtures.

Player Spotlight

With Flamengo’s Guillermo Varela still recuperating, and Giorgian de Arrascaeta and Luiz Araujo nursing thigh injuries, all eyes will be on Bruno Henrique. His decisive goal against Fogo makes him a key player for this fixture. Historically, Henrique has been a thorn in Paranaense’s side, netting eight times against them.

For the visitors, Pedro Henrique’s absence due to injury will be deeply felt. Yet, Vitor Roque, fresh from his latest strike, is in sublime form. With 11 goals this season, he’s chasing the golden boot and will be keen to add to his tally.


1. Match Outcome: Given Flamengo’s recent home form and the visitors’ inconsistencies, Flamengo seem to hold the upper hand. However, a Draw seems justified, given Athletico’s recent run of drawing games and the similar quality levels between these two top teams.

2. Correct Score: Reflecting on the teams’ defensive records and recent attacking flair, a 2-2 draw feels like a plausible scoreline.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Given the form and historical record, Bruno Henrique seems primed to be on the scoresheet for Flamengo.
