Copa Libertadores / Corinthians Paulista (SP) vs Flamengo Preview


This highly anticipated Copa Libertadores quarter-final meeting between Corinthians and Flamengo is kicking off on Wednesday.

Corinthians Paulista (SP)

Corinthians, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 1-0 Serie A success vs Botafogo. It’s been all too rare in recent games that Corinthians have shown defensive steel. In fact, Corinthians have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 8 goals in the process.

A succession of effective displays by the Flamengo defensive players has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 2 from their past 6 fixtures in total. In that period, their forwards have scored 14. Such a trend might not follow through here, of course.


We’re of the opinion that Flamengo and Corinthians should play out a closely-fought contest here. Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. That is why we are leaning toward a close game with a 1-1 draw at full-time.
