Expert analysis Flamengo
Flamengo took exemplarily 16 of their 15 points in Brazil’s Serie A table from mid-May to mid-July. During that period, Jorge Sampaoli’s side dropped points only with a 1-1 home draw against the eleventh-placed Cruzeiro on 27 May. With this, a series with a 2-0 against the 15th-ranked Goiás, a 3-2 at the fifth-last Bahia and a 1-0 against the 14th-ranked Corinthians ended.
Then, June began for the Rubro-Negro with a 4-1 at the penultimate-placed Vasco da Gama and a 3-0 over the sixth-ranked Grêmio. The run with five wins and one draw snapped on 23 June with a 0-4 away defeat against the fifth-placed Bragantino. But once again, Sampaoli’s side immediately returned to the winning track. The Rubro-Negro prevailed 3-2 at the fourth-bottom Santos and 2-0 against the 13th-placed Fortaleza. This was their fourth victory with a clean sheet within five league home matches.
But Flamengo then won only one of their last five Serie A fixtures. A 2-1 at the tenth-placed Atlético Mineiro concluded a streak that included a 1-1 at the fourth-placed Palmeiras, a 0-0 at the third-ranked Fluminense and a 1-1 against the last-placed América Mineiro. August began with a 0-3 away defeat to the eighth-placed Cuiabá on Monday.
