Corinthians vs Flamengo – Copa do Brasil :After a shaky start in the Serie A
Corinthians turn their attentions to the Copa do Brasil, where they have already eliminated Ferroviário, Ceará and Chapecoense.
The side that lost the final in 2018 against Cruzeiro is now looking to get on the path towards success, having to eliminate Flamengo on the 8th finals in order to achieve that.
Fábio Carille’s team is coming off a goalless draw on the reception to Grêmio on the last round of the Brazilian Serie A, the 2nd consecutive draw after the 1-1 away from home against Vasco da Gama and the 3rd unbeaten match.
On Sunday, Corinthians visits Atlético Paranaense before the first leg of the next stage of the Copa Sudamericana, at home, against Deportivo Lara.
Flamengo comes into the Copa do Brasil looking to avenge their elimination from the last edition precisely against Corinthians, on the semi-finals.
Despite only having won half of the 4 matches already played in the Serie A, Abel Braga’s team is only 3 points away from the lead.
Flamengo is coming off a 2-1 victory on the reception to Chapecoense, on a match that marked their return to victories after 3 winless matches, where “Mengão” drew against Peñarol away from home (0-0 that gave them qualification on the Libertadores’ group stage – and they have Emelec coming up on the 8th finals) and with São Paulo, having also lost against Internacional.

Corinthians vs Flamengo – Betting Tip and Prediction: :
On a match that doesn’t decide anything, because the decision is reserved for 3 weeks, when Flamengo hosts Corinthians, the teams will look to take the best possible result for the 2nd leg.
Playing at home, it is likely that Carille’s side will look for the victory, but it will be hard to overcome this Flamengo, not so much due to the team’s quality, because they have conceded often away from home, but due to the offensive firepower of the away side.
I believe that the two teams will prioritize their defensive systems and offer us a tight match, knowing that any mistake can make their situation very difficult for the 2nd leg.
