Fluminense will welcome Corinthians to Estadio Jornalista Mário Filho for a matchday 15 fixture in Brazil Serie A. The last meeting on 14th October 2021 ended in a Corinthians 1-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-two times in the most recent seasons. Fluminense has won 7 matches, and Corinthians triumphed in 8. Recent outings average 1.95 goals, while both teams score 41% of the time.
Fluminense’s latest fixture against Botafogo ended in an away 1-0 win. Flu was very dangerous in attack, having attempted four shots on target. Fluminense was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 82nd minute.
Corinthians’s recent game against Santos ended in a home 0-0 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn’t enough to win three points.
So far, Fluzão plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.57 points per away game on average compared to 1.43 points at home. Although Fluminense 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 29% home clean sheets.
Corinthians has picked up 11 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Coringão wins 1.57 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Corinthians kept a clean sheet in just 29% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Corinthians.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.5 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 43% of Fluminense’s home and Corinthians’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 43% of Fluminense’s home and Corinthians’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
