Corinthians Team News
After a solid start to the season, Corinthians got in a bad run of results. They have won only once in the last four games, twice in the last six. Because of that run, they slipped on the table from first to fourth place. They don’t have an easy schedule in the next couple of weeks, so if they don’t find a solution to get out of this, they will keep falling on the table.
The positive thing is the progress they have made in the Copa Libertadores where they beat Boca Juniors in the 1/8 final and made it to the quarter-final where they will play against Flamengo, today’s rival. The first game is 25 days away.
Corinthians is struggling with goals in the last three games. They scored only once in the last three games and it was from the penalty kick. They are more than 300 minutes without a goal from the open play.
Corinthians mostly rely on defence which is one of the best in Serie A with only 14 goals conceded and only Palmeiras conceded less (12).
Flamengo Team News
Flamengo has been terrible at the start of the season. They sacked Paulo Sousa a month ago and bring Dorival Junior in. Flamengo struggled with him in the first couple of games but things starts to get in the right place.
Flamengo is in the run of four consecutive wins and they scored 13 goals in those games. They also made a progress in the next round of Copa Libertadores with a fantastic aggregate victory over Deportes Tolima with 8-1.
Rubro-Negro is in the run of two consecutive league wins and has three wins in the last four games. When Sousa was sacked they were 15th on the table and right now they are in 8th place. After this game, they have an acceptable schedule where they can go for more points and make more significant progress on the table. The second-placed Athletico is only six points far.
With the new manager, Flamengo became more efficient. They have been scoring 0.91 goals per game with Sousa and now 1.6 goals per game with Junior.
Flamengo didn’t lose any of the last 11 games against Corinthians in Serie A. Rubro-Negro has eight wins and three games were finished with draws. So, we can say that Corinthians is one of their favourite rivals. In seven of the last 11 games, there were over 2.5 goals and also in seven, we saw a BTTS.
Team news and injuries
Corinthians: Victor Pereira has several absent players. The striker Adson is questionable because of COVID-19, and defenders Fagner and Ruan Oliveira are injured. Renato Augusto, Gustavo Silva, Maycon, and Luan are all in doubt for this game.

Corinthians vs. Flamengo Prediction
Corinthians is struggling at the moment with form and the list of absentees is big. Victor Pereira’s team has a problem with scoring goals and their top scorer Roger Guedes has scored one goal since April. On the other hand, Flamengo is better and better with every game. Dorival Junior weak up the team and they progress on the table with every round.
Momentum is on Flamengo’s side before this game and they are closer to winning all three points here. This game can be crucial for the rest of the season and one too big momentum on. Because, as we said, they have an acceptable schedule in the next couple of weeks.
