Flamengo vs. São Paulo: clash of opposite realities

Brasileirão matchday 13 begins and one of the most important duels will take place next Sunday when Flamengo receives São Paulo. It will be a new chapter between two of the biggest teams in Brazil that go through completely opposite presents.

On the one hand, Flamengo remains in Copa Libertadores positions and will seek a victory to get closer to the top and close the gap with Palmeiras, leader in solitude. On the other hand, São Paulo is in an extremely complex situation as it is only one point from the relegation zone. Only the three points will allow you to oxygenate yourself to prolong the Hernán Crespo cycle.

Flamengo's last matches

Flamengo's present lives up to expectations. Renato Portaluppi continues to demonstrate his experience and fight on all fronts after the local title obtained in 2020 and that he will seek to revalidate in this new season. The "Fla" ​​not only obtained the passage to the quarterfinals in the Copa Libertadores with solvency after eliminating Defense and Justice, but also remains in the vanguard positions in the Brasileirão.

At the beginning of the season, sports forecasts had anticipated that Flamengo was in a footballing condition to challenge the main favorites, Palmeiras and Atlético Mineiro, for the championship. The present turned the forecast into a reality based on the 18 points obtained by those led by Portaluppi, which placed it in sixth position in the Brasileirão.

The "urube" reaped 6 victories and 4 defeats, although he has two pending matches that in the event of obtaining the six points would bring him even closer to Palmeiras. The gap between the “verdao” and the “Fla” is ten points, so the match against São Paulo will be vital for the aspirations for the Brasileirão.

Psychic clean and jerk. Flamengo arrives in the best way after an almost perfect series against the current champion of the South American Cup. The 5-1 aggregate victory against Defense and Justice allowed the Brazilian team to advance towards the quarterfinals with absolute deservedness based on their defensive solidity and scoring opportunism.

On the other hand, the “Flu” accumulates two consecutive victories in the Brasileirão after the 2-1 against Chapecoense and a 5-0 away, against Bahia. The duel against São Paulo will be a litmus test for Portaluppi, as he will let us know what the aspirations and the reality of the team are for the immediate future.

São Paulo's last matches

Few fans would have imagined the present of the "tricolor" in the Brasileirão, since the sports predictions had placed him as one of the animating teams of the domestic tournament.

However, São Paulo is still in debt in the local tournament and seems to be flirting with relegation. Just 11 points in 12 games and one point ahead of Sport Recife, located in the relegation zone. Crespo still couldn't adapt to complicated Brazilian soccer and his team's sixteenth place clearly reflects a minor crisis, despite the last two wins in a row against Internacional and Bahia.

On the other hand, São Paulo advanced to the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores after leaving Racing Club de Avellaneda on the road. Crespo's team had obtained a poor result at home after the 1-1 in the first leg. However, in the return in Avellaneda it was effective and stayed with the series after 3-1. In this way, the “Tricolor” accumulates three games without knowing the defeat and against Flamengo they will have a good opportunity to extend the positive streak and escape to the lower zone of the Brasileirão as anticipated by the Brasileirão predictions.

History between both

Flamengo and São Paulo played 44 games for Brasileirão. The "tricolor" obtained 18 victories, tied in 15 opportunities while the "Fla" ​​dominated in 11 games.

The most recent antecedent between both teams was in 2020 with the 2-1 victory of São Paulo. For its part, the last match at the Maracana with the "Fla" ​​playing at home, the "Tricolor" won 4-1.

The magnifying glass on...

Gabriel Barbosa is the main target for sports betting to convert the first goal after his history and experience: he scored 13 goals in 14 games played during the current season. However, Flamengo has his young promise, Pedro, who at just 24 years is the team's top scorer with three goals. Rodrigo Muniz and Bruno Henrique (both with 3 goals each) are also candidates to convert against São Paulo.

The magnifying glass on...

São Paulo has Emiliano Rigoni as the top striker of the "tricolor" from his two goals and nine assists so far this season. However, the Brasileirão predictions have Igor Silveira Gomes as one of the possible scorers against “Flu” after having converted against Internacional.

Sports bets

The main sportsbooks have Flamengo as the favorite and their victory has a 1.72 odds. For its part, the tie pays 3.60 and the conquest of Crespo's team 5.00.

Regarding the “double chance” offered by sports betting, Flamengo or tie pays 1.16, tie or São Paulo 2.00 and Flamengo or São Paulo 1.28. For those who opt for the correct result, the 1-0 in favor of "Fla" ​​leaves a margin of 6.50 being the favorite result of sports bettors.

Taking into account that these are two teams with good offensive power, the option "both teams will convert" pays 1.95, while both teams do not convert has a 1.80 odds.

Finally, Gabriel Barbosa's goal at any time pays 1.66 while in case of scoring the first goal of the match, the odds will be 3.10.
