Flamengo vs Cruzeiro Prediction 12 August 2018

Tournament: Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A
Location: Estadio Journalista Mario Filho
Match date: 12.08.2018 at 20:00

On August 12 2018 at 20:00 at the Estadio Journalista Mario Filho in the upcoming regular match of the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A the local Flamengo are going to play against their guests Cruzeiro. Three days after the match in the Copa Libertadores the teams are going to meet each other in the national championship. Flamengo are probably planning to rehabilitate after the 0:2 losses in the international competition.

The Red and Blacks went down to the second position in the standings of the national elite division after the previous season. They are now just one point below the leaders Sao Paulo. Moreover, they are really strong in their domestic matches as they won seven times in nine game played with just three goals missed.

As for Cruzeiro, they are on the 8th position in the standings with 25 points gained in their 17 games. In the last three matches they didn’t win even once. That unsuccessful series makes us think that they are planning to make the main emphasis on their participating in the Copa Libertadores. That’s why we shouldn’t probably be too surprised in case Cruzeiro don’t win a lot in the upcoming match of the national championship.

The hosts are much more likely to be the favorites of the upcoming match. Yet, considering the fact that both teams choose to concentrate on defense makes us think that there won’t be a lot of goals scored this time.
