Flamengo dominantly reached the round of 16. They finished the group stage in first place in Group H, with 16 points. In the six games played, they only drew once, with a goal difference of 15:6.
They triumphed convincingly all three home games, and showed how superior they are in front of their fans. In those three matches, they scored 8 and conceded only 3 goals, so their defensive qualities are really great.
Considering that they have a very important match waiting for them, we believe that they will once again pay special attention to the defensive segment of the game, because in such matches one goal can completely turn the situation around.
Flamengo is a much more experienced and better team, and we expect that they will thoroughly control the situation on the field.

The team from Colombia was very lucky to secure a place in the round of 16. They achieved as many as three victories with a lot of difficulties and luck, and the fact that the Independiente del Valle team practically “disintegrated” in the decisive moments suited them.
Although it sounds strange, the Colombians were much better on away grounds. They won 7 points in 3 matches, with 7 goals scored and 5 goals conceded. The numbers look really great, but their opponents in the group stage were much weaker than Flamengo.
They failed to take advantage of the home field in the first match, so they are now under a lot of pressure.
They will have to play much more offensively, which means that “holes” will very likely appear in their defense.

Flamengo RJ vs. Deportes Tolima Prediction
The home team has a minimal advantage over the Deportes team, so the pressure is on the backs of the away team players. In such a balance of power, Flamengo is much more experienced, and we expect them to completely “close the match”.
This means that they will control the situation on the field, and as they are known for their disciplined game in defense, we will not be surprised if they keep their net this time.
