Flamengo vs Emelec Prediction 17 May 2018

Tournament: Copa Libertadores
Location: Estadio Jornalista Mario Filho
Match date: 17.05.2018 at 01:45

On May 17 2018 at 01:45 at the Estadio Jornalista Mario Filho in the forthcoming match of the Copa Libertadores the local Flamengo are playing against their guests Emelec.

We must actually admit that the Group D is the most peaceful one in the current season of the Copa Libertadores as they drew five times in their nine games already played. Such a result will be okay for Flamengo wily Emelec really need to win to make it to the play-offs of the competition.

Flamengo are now on the second place in the group as they won once, drew three times and gained 6 points in their 4 matches. They are two points above their closest rivals Santa Fe while Santa Fe played one more game compared to Flamengo. In case the Brazilians win, they will make it to the play-offs together with River Plate. In their home matches already played in the group stage as they drew twice with a few goals scored. They won their only game in Ecuador as they played against Emelec.

The statistics of Emelec in the Copa Libertadores aren’t impressive at all. They have only gained one point in their matches played at the group stage. Yet, even those obviously bad results leave them some chances to make it to the play-offs of the competition. They have to win in their both game and expect River Plate to win against Flamengo. The probability of such an outcome isn’t very high and yet Emelec will fight until the end.

The favorites of the upcoming match are obvious and they are Flamengo. They are eager to finally make their domestic fans happy with at least one domestic victory. We really don’t think that Emelec are going to lose with a big goal difference and still they aren’t very likely to win this time. Anyway, it seems to us that there won’t be a lot of goal scored in the upcoming match.
