Flamengo vs Juventude Predictions and Betting Tips
Flamengo look to continue their pursuit of the league leaders this Wednesday as they welcome Juventude to the Estádio do Maracanã. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
In the reverse fixture, one solitary goal from Matheus Peixoto was enough to separate both sides with Juventude picking up the victory in the first ever meeting between both sides.
Flameng looking to continue unbeaten run
The hosts head into this game currently on a six-game unbeaten run in all competitions as they've managed four wins and two draws since losing to Gremio. A winning run, however, is exactly what is needed given that they trail league leaders Atletico Miniero by 11 points and although they have two spare games to play, they would need to start putting out consistent stellar performances if they're to close that gap. Last time out, they put three unanswered goals past Fortaleza.
Juventude, on the flip side, head into this game without a win in any of their last three league matches. A run of just one league win in 10 games for the newly-promoted side puts them in 15th position with just two points separating them from the relegation zone. In their most recent game, they managed to pick up a point against league leaders Atletico Miniero. Can they do the same against the second-placed team in the Brazilian top-flight?
Flamengo vs Juventude Prediction: 2-0
The visitors would certainly be buoyed by the points earned in their most recent game, however, Flamengo is a different side compared to the league leaders. They're more potent in attack as they possess the best goal scoring record in the division. As such, we're tempted to side with the hosts to stretch their unbeaten run to seven games.
