Flamengo vs Sao Paulo

Going into this match, Flamengo and São Paulo will be under pressure to perform well.

Sao Paulo possible starting lineup: 

Rafael, Igor Vinícius, Diego Costa, Robert Arboleda, Nahuel Ferraresi, Pablo Maia, Alisson, Giuliano Galoppo, Michel Araújo, Luciano, Jonathan Calleri

Fortaleza was defeated 2-1 in São Paulo’s last match. They had eleven corners and six shots on goal in the Serie A encounter, with Andre scoring.

Flamengo have won six of their last ten matches. In their previous four games, Sao Paulo has won twice and drawn once.

Our Predictions

Flamengo to win

Tite’s Flamengo stunned Serie A newcomers Atletico GO with a late-game performance that earned them all three points. Fla took the lead with an unstoppable free kick by Nicolas de la Cruz, and then Luiz Fernando levelled the score with a thunderous header.

But Pedro could slide the ball in from 12 yards out because Maguinho made a hasty judgment to send him off for an elbow inside the area.

In contrast to the league favourites, São Paulo’s new head coach had a poor first week in charge. As Thiago Carpini acclimates to his new environment, Fortaleza deservedly won despite ruining the celebration with two second-half goals.

Travelling to the Maracana is never ideal, but Fla finally found their groove against Atletico GO and should continue that momentum in round two.

In the first round, Fortaleza breezed past the visitors’ attempts to swarm the midfield and disrupt Tite’s team’s flow. Fla will be tough to contain with all their A-listers performing if they get into their stride.

Tite, a former Brazilian coach, should show Carpini the success he cannot achieve at this level.
