Fortaleza vs Flamengo Tips and Prediction
Juan Pablo Vojvoda and his squad have had a difficult time climbing the domestic ladder after spending much of the season towards the bottom of the standings.
They haven’t been able to further their advantage in recent games, despite being in a far better position to stay in the top division.
In their three domestic games this month, Leao do Pici have only managed to earn one point, and in their most recent game, they let a 1-0 lead at Juventude slip away.
They are in a risky situation going into this midweek game since a win may place them in a tie for a spot in the Copa Sudamericana next season, while a loss might return them to the relegation zone.
Fortaleza’s recent domestic recovery has been greatly aided by their home-field advantage, despite the fact that they lost their most recent league match 3-1 against Botafogo at Arena Castelao. Fortaleza had won six of their previous seven home games while recording one shutout prior to their loss to Fogo.
One thing you can say about this group is that they don’t seem intimidated when facing the stronger teams in the top division, as evidenced by their victories over Flamengo, Corinthians, and Internacional as well as their ability to hold the league’s top scorers, Palmeiras, without a goal in a draw back in July.
They may not be scoring as effectively as they did during their previous domestic season, but they have demonstrated a lot greater dedication to goalkeeping this season than they did last, having only allowed 29 goals thus far, 16 fewer than they ultimately gave up in 2021. Rio de Janeiro may soon receive several trophies, but Flamengo’s chances of winning the triplet seem to be dwindling.
Dorival Junior’s team has lost all three of their league games, and they are now clinging to a spot in the Libertadores for the upcoming season. They are currently just one point ahead of Corinthians for a spot in the tournament’s group stage.
Mengao have given up the first goal in each of their domestic games this month, and they haven’t done so since August, when they drew 1-1 with Palestra.
The joint third-highest scoring team in the league has scored a goal or fewer in each of their previous five domestic matches, suggesting that they may have been more focused on those competitions than Serie A after securing their spots in the Copa Libertadores and Copa do Brasil finals.
With five clean sheets in their last nine away games across all competitions, Flamengo has appeared much more at ease on the road.
If Urubu loses on Wednesday, their winless streak will have lasted four straight domestic games, which would be their longest winless streak since going four games without a victory in a row in 2017.
Going into this match, Fortaleza will want to put on a defensive display in order to counter a shining Flamengo side with good attacking players with them . We can see Flamengo taking away all the points here .
