We enter the 33rd matchday of the Brasileirão, meaning that the end of the season is near. Now more than ever, every clash is of great value, although this particular matchup is always special. Two of the most powerful teams in Brazil face as Flamengo and Palmeiras meet with the first place, and maybe the title, at stake.
The ‘Flu’ has had quite a shambolic year. However, even with great instability and without a defined idea of play, the pure power of their squad has taken them to this point with chances to win the league.
The ‘Verdão,’ on the other hand, comes with a fearsome form. Now they face one of the hardest challenges left in their quest for revalidating the Brasileirão title.
Wednesday, November 8th at 7:30 pm ET at the Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro
Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Flamengo?
Flamengo are just 6 points behind the first place. However, things are very tight at the top, so, at the moment, they are outside the group of four with direct tickets to the next Copa Libertadores.
They can be quiet as Athletico-PR, a fairly inconsistent team, is the only club with chances of taking them away from the top six, but they are 4 points away. However, having to fight for a place in the most important club competition in the Americas to the very end is not an ideal scenario, so they will want to straighten the path quickly, and this is the perfect chance.
Why Bet on Palmeiras?
Palmeiras are unstoppable and already tied to Botafogo on points at the top of the Brasileirão. Although it is the runner-up by goal difference, there is no stronger club in Amazonian soccer, and they hope to extend the consecutive victories as long as possible.
Although they’ll visit one of the most fearsome stadiums in the world, their confidence is sky-high, so their rivals must be very careful. The ‘Verdão’ is going like a train to prevent ‘O Fogo’s’ Cinderella history from having a happy end, so we must wait to see if any team is capable of stopping them.
Betting Analysis: Flamengo vs. Palmeiras
On the one hand, a team that is under pressure and in need of a victory plays at home and has a consolation prize in the ‘Plaza de la Libertadores.’ On the other hand, a team that wants to fight for the title at all costs.
We do place our betting token on the victory of Palmeiras. Although disorganized and with no standout names in attack, they have good individual talents and a higher level of competitiveness. This will be key in a tense match with many things at stake.
If you place $100 on a victory for Palmeiras, you could get $200 for a total payout of $300.
