Palmeiras vs. Flamengo: an early final

The Brasileirao tournament remains red hot and while the usual candidates remain at the top, some revelations want to make a splash and keep all the glory. Indeed, next Sunday one of the most awaited clashes by fans and neutrals will have Palmeiras and Flamengo who will face each other again at the Allians Parque Stadium after that remembered final of Libertadores.

This is not just another duel. It will be an unmissable clash between the two main favorites of sports forecasts not only to stay with the Brasileirao, but also to play again in the final of the Copa Libertadores de América.

On the one hand, Verdao wants to stretch their advantage even further over Mengao and for this it will be positive to rescue a draw and of course, keep the three points in the face of the unconditional support of their fans.

For its part, Mengao has no choice but to win as a visitor, taking into account the difference of nine existing points that separate it from the leader Palmeiras. To do this, those commanded by Dorival Júnior must play a match that borders on perfection.

Last Palmeiras matches

Verdao wins, likes and scores. And it is no coincidence, since Abel Ferreira's football idea prevails regardless of the opponent on duty, much less the stadium. Palmeiras has an oiled game in all its lines and continues to be the main favorite in sports predictions to be crowned in the double competition (Brasileirao and Copa Libertadores).

This superiority is due to high-ranking players in all lines and the emotional momentum that achieving the two-time Copa Libertadores championship in 2020 and 2021 meant. Now, Abel Ferreira and his team will go for glory once again, but without neglecting the domestic tournament where they remain as absolute leaders with 48 points after 14 wins, six draws and two losses in 22 games played where they scored 37 goals in favor and only received 14 being the highest scoring team and the one with the highest number of clean sheets.

The last matches of Palmeiras in the Brasileirao were as follows: they lost 0-2 against Paranense in an unexpected result, drew goalless against Fortaleza as a visitor, defeated Cuiabá 1-0 and América de Minas Gerais, 2-1 the Internacional de Porto Alegre and Ceará and thrashed Goiás 3-0 on the last day to stretch their lead to 8 points over their immediate rival, Flamengo.

It is worth noting that Palmeiras is among the best four teams in the Copa Libertadores and will have to face Athletico Paranaense in the semifinals.

Last Flamengo matches

The present of Mengao is similar to that of Palmeiras, although the results in the domestic tournament are not what the board or the fans expected, taking into account the top-level reinforcements that Flamengo added in recent weeks, such as Vidal or Everton.

Despite the supreme hierarchy of the squad, Mengao suffers from irregularity in the Brasileirao with results that surprise sports betting , especially against rivals of lesser value.

Until now, Flamengo remains as escort of Palmeiras with 38 points accumulated in 22 days where it obtained 12 victories, three draws and seven defeats that moved it away from the top of the tournament. In addition, he scored 37 goals and received 19, reflecting some defensive shortcomings and inattention that Dorival must correct as soon as possible.

The last duels of Flamengo in the Brasileirao were as follows: they beat Santos 2-1 as a visitor, lost 1-0 against Corinthians in an illogical result for sports betting , dominated 2-0 against Curitiba, thrashed 4- 0 against Juventude, beat Avaí 2-1 away, thrashed Goianiense 4-1 and defeated Sao Paulo 2-0 on the last day.

It is important to note that Flamengo is also in the semifinals of the Copa Libertadores where they will have to face Vélez Sarsfield from Argentina with the aim of reaching the final and taking revenge after the runner-up achieved in the last edition.
