Flamengo will welcome Palmeiras to Estadio Jornalista Mário Filho for a matchday 4 fixture in Brazil Serie A. The last meeting on 27th November 2021 ended in a Palmeiras 2-1 win. Both sides have met eighteen times in the most recent seasons. Flamengo has won 6 matches, and Palmeiras triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 3.17 goals, while both teams score 78% of the time.
Flamengo’s last game in the Brazil Serie A against São Paulo at home ended in a 3-1 win. O Mais Querido do Brasil had more possession of the ball and took advantage of it. Flamengo played much better in the first half and scored in the 25th, 69th and 72nd minute.
Palmeiras’s previous game in the competition versus Goiás ended in an away 1-1 draw. They learned a lesson that day. More ball possession and shots do not always give you good results. Palmeiras was not convincing in the first-half and scored in the 90+6th minute.
Since the start of the season, Mengão is more dominant at home. They have one wins out of 1 games on home soil. Although Flamengo is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.
Palmeiras has picked up 1 points from the previous two league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Palestra has collected 1.00 points on average per away game, compared to 0.00 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Palmeiras kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory.My prediction is Flamengo to win.
