Our Prediction:

Corinthians will win

Corinthians – Fluminense Match Prediction | 20-08-2019

Theyve won 9 of their last 12 home games against Flamengo and with the visitors in a distracted state, they could well improve upon that record, with a 1-0 margin of home victory on the cards. All things considered, we feel that backing Corinthians provides good value on Sunday and at current prices, is something were more than happy to do. Its likely to be a tight game, but Corinthians should have just enough to edge it.

His return to the club, after previously steering Timao to the Serie A title back in 2017, had started in fairly slow fashion but results are now starting to come, with the team having lost just 1 of their last 5 league matches and now up to 8th in the table. Whilst they might not be playing the most swashbuckling of football at the moment, Corinthians seem to be finding their feet under the watch of Fabio Carille.

A 1-0 home win over CSA last weekend marked a good return to action following the Copa America break for Corinthians and extended their strong run of home form, which has their prospects looking bright coming into this game. Indeed, Corinthians have now won their last 3 home games and are still yet to concede a goal at the Corinthians Arena in Serie A this season, more than illustrating their strength as hosts.

Void bets occur when the bet is not decided as a win or loss and the stake is returned to the player. a common void bet occurs in tennis when a player retires through injury. This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g. Note: bookmakers' policies on voided matches changes so we always recommend players to check the specific terms of bookmakers they bet with to ensure they understand under what circumstances they void bets.

That has damaged the feel good factor that was building around Mengao and confidence is slightly dented coming into this trip, which Flamengo dont appear fully focused on either. Indeed, although its an important game for the visitors, they have a big Copa Libertadores trip to Emelec in midweek and that could see them make rotations here in Sao Paulo.

So this being the 1st leg i see them able to take the 3 points. The hosts did 3 wins and 0 defeats in the last 5 matches played and at home are pretty good team. Guests on other hand did 2 defeats in the last 2 matches played and so away where aren't good team i don't see them well and will lose for me. The hosts are Corinthis and guests are Fluminense and these are 2 teams from Brazil. Hosts are favourite and will be able to win and so my bet is the straight home team win FT.

Flamengo Team News

All things considered, its backing Corinthians on the -1 handicap that captures our attention and is exactly where our money is going. Fluminense have conceded an average of 1.91 goals a game over their last 12 outings on the road and with Corinthians having won 3 of their last 4 home games by 2-0 margins, thats not a scoreline thats hard to envisage being repeated on Friday.

Having also won 6 of their last 8 home matches, confidence can be very high coming into Fridays match and those taking to the pitch will be assured of the ability to get the job done. Arriving unbeaten in 9 matches across all competitions, of which theyve won 6, the hosts are currently in excellent shape and are starting to look like a real force once again under boss Fabio Carille.
