Flamengo vs Universidad Catolica Prediction 4 May 2017

Tournament: Copa Libertadores
Location: Maracana Stadium
Match date: 04.05.2017 at 01:45

On May 4 2017 at 01:45 in the fifth round game of the Copa Libertadores group stage at the Maracana Stadium the local Flamengo are playing against Universidad Catolica.

We can say for sure that the preseason campaign appeared to be really successful for Flamengo. They are one of the favorites of the Campeonato Carioca where they outplayed Fluminense 0:1 in the first round game of the final. As for the Copa Libertadores, the position of Fluminense is pretty uncertain, in fact. After four matches played at the group stage Flamengo have 6 points gained. Yet, the teams are so close to each other in their group that even Atletico Paranaense aren’t going to play in the play-offs yet.

As for Universidad Catolica from Chile, their results in the national championship are pretty good, in fact. They have already played 12 matches in it and gained 19 points which let them take the 6th place in the standings with 22:21 goal difference. As for Copa Libertadores, in their competition Universidad Catolica have 5 points after 4 matches played and take the third place in the standings and they still have theoretical chances to make it to the play-offs.

The upcoming game will be the fourth one played between the teams. We must remind you that they have already met twice in that same tournament seven years ago and they won one game each. In the current competition Universidad Catolica outplayed Flamengo at home. Yet, considering the fact that Universidad aren’t really stable in the current season, we think that Flamengo will manage to get their necessary three points in the upcoming match in Brazil.
