Bet Flamengo vs Internacional: our selection of the best bets
Both teams score
Flamengo comes from two consecutive victories and arrives confident for the duel against Inter. In the last few games, Mais Querido returned to present an offensive repertoire and managed to score four goals. At Maracanã, in front of its passionate crowd, such a ‘fate’ must be maintained by Jorge Sampaoli’s team.
Inter already got a result beyond important last Tuesday (22). With a goal by Enner Valencia, Colorado beat Bolívar by 1-0 away from home and moved on to the semifinals of the Copa Libertadores. The Ecuadorian striker is available to Coudet and is the great hope of goals for the team from Rio Grande do Sul.
More than 2.5 goals
Both Flamengo and Internacional have quality players and renowned scorers in their respective squads. If on the one hand the Rubro-Negro has names like Gabigol, Bruno Henrique, Arrascaeta and Pedro, Colorado is not far behind and presents its offensive credentials: Alan Patrick, Aránguiz and Enner Valencia.
Due to this ‘meeting’ of stars, it is difficult not to imagine that the match at Maracanã will be full of goals. That’s why the guess for more than 2.5 balls in the net.
Flamengo by 1 (winning margin)
If, on the one hand, Flamengo is still alive in the Copa do Brasil (guaranteed in the final), Inter put one foot in the semifinal of the Libertadores. However, the point of imbalance between the two teams is the Brazilian Championship. The red-black campaign is more solid and the numbers show that the team from Rio is doing a good campaign at home.
Mais Querido is very strong playing in Rio de Janeiro and will do everything to beat another opponent in Maracanã. However, it is worth noting that Colorado has a qualified squad and should not make life easier for the home team.
Flamengo x Internacional: the current form of the teams
Despite the blow, Flamengo seems to have assimilated the early elimination in the Copa Libertadores well. At least that’s what the results have been saying. In the three games it played after being disqualified for Olimpia, Rubro-Negro won two (Grêmio and Coritiba) and drew one (São Paulo).
As mentioned, the club from Gávea is third in the Brasileirão. However, the competition of consecutive points is not the tournament that the team from Rio has more chances of winning the title. After eliminating Grêmio, the team led by Sampaoli secured a place in the final of the Copa do Brasil and will face São Paulo.
