Palmeiras vs. Flamengo Preview and Free Pick

Palmeiras vs. Flamengo
Copa America 2024

Two of the main contenders for the Brasileirão title will face each other in round 14, next Saturday, at the Allianz Parque stadium. Palmeiras, the last champion of the Brazilian league, will face Flamengo, which is the richest team in the country.

Without winning for three games, the Verdão is facing its worst moment of the season. The team rarely goes so many rounds without winning and this negative sequence has kept the players and the coaching staff awake at night.

The Fla, however, seems to be recovering with the arrival of coach Jorge Sampaoli. The visitors will face the challenge of looking for their third straight victory to get closer to the leader Botafogo, who has 8 points of advantage.

When: 

Saturday, July 8th – 8:00 PM ET at the Allianz Parque

Palmeiras +116

Flamengo +215

Where Can I Watch? 

Brasil Play

Why Bet on Palmeiras?

Despite going through a difficult time, Palmeiras has high-quality players and a coach who does not accept losing. The champion of the last edition of the Brasileirão experienced its first defeat in the current season in the confrontation against Bahia but lost again when receiving Botafogo at home. In the last round, the 2-2 draw with Athletico Paranaense was filled with emotion and criticism of the refereeing.

Dudu, Raphael Veiga, and Rony continue to be the main references in Verdão’s attack, while Gustavo Gomez and Weverton are responsible for keeping the goal inviolable.

Although facing an unusual scenario, Palmeiras has enough strength and quality to beat Flamengo. With a mentally strong team, Palmeiras will be able to overcome this moment of crisis and beat this powerful opponent.

Why Bet on Flamengo?

Flamengo still does not demonstrate a cheerful and showy football, as they did in 2019 when they were champions of the Brasileirão. However, coach Jorge Sampaoli’s tactical adjustments have had very positive effects. They are already in third place and have a pretty established starting eleven.

The Fla beat Fortaleza, 2-0, in the last round and consolidated in third place. In the last 5 games played, Sampaoli’s team won four and lost only one: 4-0 against RB Bragantino.

Facing Palmeiras is always a great challenge, but Flamengo’s recent form is very good, and the chances of surprising the opponent as a visitor are real. The Uruguayan De Arrascaeta returned to shine, as well as the strikers Pedro and Gabriel Barbosa.

Final Betting Analysis: Palmeiras vs. Flamengo

The last two clashes between Palmeiras and Flamengo for the Brasileirão ended in a draw: 1-1 and 0-0. However, in the last Brazilian Super Cup, which brings together the champions of the Copa do Brasil and Brasileirão, Palmeiras won by 4-3.

The duels between them are always balanced and the task of making a prediction becomes a great challenge. Despite the recent defeats, Palmeiras does not usually lose to Flamengo when playing at home. This may be the ideal time for recovery. We believe in the local’s victory.

If you put $100 into Palmeiras’ win, you could get $116 back for a total payout of $216.
