Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Flamengo win and over 1.5 goals
Odds: 3/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to move one step closer to lifting the Serie A title, Flamengo will host a struggling Vasco da Gama in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been a stellar campaign, Flamengo have all but secured this year’s Serie A title. In their 32 matches this season, they have recorded 24 wins, five draws, and just three defeats, scoring 68 and conceding 26 in return. Now holding a nine-point buffer at the top of the table, it should also be noted that they hold the best-attacking record in the division. As for their recent run of results, Flamengo are enjoying a three-match winning run and are also unbeaten in their last 23 matches across all competitions. The hosts have also scored two or more goals in five of their last six matches on home soil.
As for the visitors, continuing on what has been a worrying second half of the season, Vasco da Gama have begun freefalling down the standings. In their 31 Serie A matches this year, they have recorded 10 wins, nine draws, and 12 defeats, scoring 28 and conceding 37 in return. With a points tally of 39, they now hold just a three-point buffer from slipping out of the Copa Sudamericana positions. As for their recent run of results, Vasco have won just one of their last five Serie A matchups and Thursday’s trip to Flamengo could prove to be another extremely tough test.
