CSA – Can CSA get something out of Flamengo clash?

CSA find themselves in early relegation trouble as they occupy the bottom four in the Brazilian top flight, sitting second from bottom ahead of this difficult looking clash with high-flying Flamengo, as the hosts look to avoid a third consecutive defeat in Serie A.

CSA have suffered back-to-back defeats to Atletico Mineiro and Botafogo in recent times which has dumped them into the relegation zone and with just 1 win under their belts so far this season, the hosts look to be up against it when Flamengo come to town this Wednesday night.

The host’s only success so far this season came in the shape of a 1-0 home win over mid-table Goias within an overall home record of 1-2-1 3/3 which also includes draws with the top two clubs in Serie A, Palmeiras and Santos in 1-1 and 0-0 stalemates respectively, and although they were handed a 2-1 loss to Botafogo last time out on home turf, CSA will take a lot of confidence and belief from those recent draws with the best two teams in the division.

Flamengo Prediction – Can Flamengo lift themselves into top four?

Flamengo sit in 5th place in the Brazilian top flight and will be looking to capture all three points on Wednesday night when they face the second from bottom club, CSA, at their Estádio Rei Pelé with the visitors looking to lift themselves up into automatic Libertadores reckoning.

Following back-to-back wins against Athletico PR and Fortaleza, Flamengo were held to a 0-0 draw by local rivals, Fluminense in the recent Flu-Fla encounter last Sunday, but although they didn’t make it three wins on the trot, the visitors extended their unbeaten run to 3 matches.

Flamengo have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches overall in Serie A which was a 2-1 loss away at Atletico Mineiro which extended their winless run on the road to 4 matches, but they’ll be keen to set the record straight against lowly CSA here this evening no doubt.

However, an away record that stands at 0-2-2 3/5 and includes defeats at Internacional and Atletico Mineiro and managing only draws at Sao Paulo and Fluminense may suggest that Flamengo may not win by as big a margin as many people expect here.


Key-Facts – CSA v Flamengo

  • CSA have recently held Palmeiras and Santos to darws at home in Serie A
  • Flamengo have gone 4 away matches without a win in Serie A
  • Flamengo have won just 3 away matches out of their last 18 on the road


Betting Tips Verdict

CSA could frustrate their opponents here, and even if Flamengo do win, the hosts may well keep things tighter than many anticipate.
