Expert analysis Palmeiras

The home side in the Palmeiras vs Flamengo clash last managed on Sunday a 2-2 at the ninth-placed Athletico Paranaense. This ended a streak of two 0-1s of Abel Ferreira’s side at the 15th-ranked Bahia and on the 25 June at home to the leaders Botafogo.

Previously, June began with a 3-1 domestic win against the bottom-ranked Coritiba and a 2-0 at the seventh-placed São Paulo. But the reigning champions’ Serie A results at their Allianz Parque look better. Because: The Porco celebrated against Coritiba the fourth victory in five championship home matches.

Here, a 1-1 against the fifth-placed RB Bragantino on the 13 May constituted the exception. This was preceded by two 2-1 victories over the 13th-ranked Cuiabá as well as in a city derby against the fifth-last-placed Corinthians and a 4-1 thrashing of the second-placed Grêmio. Thus, there were more than 2.5 goals in four of Palmeiras’ first five league home fixtures. Moreover, the fourth-placed team in Brazil’s Serie A table, exemplarily, conceded goals four times in the last five matchdays.

Expert analysis Flamengo

For Flamengo, the Serie A 2023 began with a 3-0 home win over Coritiba. However, the victory against the bottom-placed team initially revealed itself to be a flash in the pan. Because: Jorge Sampaoli’s team initially lost at the eighth ranked Internacional (1-2), against Botafogo (2-3) and at Athletico Paranaense (1-2).

Four days later, the Rubro-Negro returned to winning ways with a 2-0 win over the fourth-last-placed Goiás. Retrospectively, it marked the first of seven victories in nine championship games. The initial exception occurred on the 27 May with a 1-1 home draw against the 12th-ranked Cruzeiro. Previously, the Rubro-Negro won 3-2 at Bahia as well as at home against Corinthians 1-0.

Then, June began with a 4-1 at the third-bottom Vasco da Gama and a 3-0 thrashing against Grêmio. All this made a 0-4 away defeat against RB Bragantino on the 23 June all the more surprising. But Flamengo again got immediately back on the winning track.

Sampaoli’s side initially prevailed at the 14th-placed Santos 3-2. It was the fourth time in a row that in a match of the third-placed side in Brazil’s Serie A table more than 2.5 goals were scored. On Saturday, a 2-0 home win over the eleventh-placed Fortaleza followed.

Head-to-head comparison Palmeiras vs Flamengo

This year, the Palmeiras vs Flamengo clash already took place in the Supercopa do Brasil. Here, this time’s home side prevailed 4-3 in the capital Brasília on the 28 January. Previously, Palmeiras achieved against Flamengo in the Serie A 2022 away a 0-0 and at home a 1-1.

Our betting prediction and the best odds

The hosts in the top match Palmeiras vs Flamengo drew 2-2 at the ninth-placed Athletico Paranaense on Sunday. With this, the Porco collected one point after defeats at Bahia and against Botafogo. However, they conceded a goal for the fourth time in four championship appearances. This happened at the Allianz Parque against the last-placed Coritiba, too. The visitors won four of their last five Serie A fixtures. In those wins, they always netted at least twice. Furthermore, a 3-2 win over 14th-ranked Santos on 25 June was their fourth consecutive match with more than 2.5 goals.

Palmeiras vs Flamengo – betting prediction: Over 2.5 goals, odds 1.88

Alice is half Austrian and half Italian. That's why she experienced the 1990 World Cup in Italy at first hand. And that awakened her enthusiasm for football. Since she has loved writing since childhood, Alice began to study journalism while still at school. It was very convenient for her that her class took part in a project of a German daily newspaper. She was also allowed to write for the children's pages of an Austrian daily newspaper and to get a taste of the sports department of the same medium. This is how she received her first press accreditations, which was of course anything but a matter of course for the then 18-year-old. Although she was partly advised against it, Alice decided to study journalism and communication sciences. After a few years, she decided to use the exams she had taken as an elective. Nevertheless, she applies the knowledge she has acquired in her further professional life. The same applies to her language skills. In addition to her mother tongues German and Italian, Alice is also proficient in English and Spanish. She also understands French and can use this language in research. During her studies, Alice was involved in an Austrian football club. At the same time, she wrote for a total of three Austrian portals and worked as an Austria correspondent for an Italian-language online medium. This collaboration started during Giovanni Trapattoni's era at Red Bull Salzburg and continued during EURO 2008. This gave her the opportunity to interact with Trapattoni as well as with Italian journalists. From the following year, Alice initially worked with a Swiss portal before discovering sports betting content for herself. On the one hand, this kept her in sports journalism, and on the other, it broadened her horizons. And that both in the context of the sports betting industry and with other sports as well as countries. In the field of sports journalism, she focused in particular on football from around the world, volleyball and beach volleyball. In addition, she naturally wrote several guides, bookmaker profiles, bonus articles and other content for betting enthusiasts. She did this for the same company for about ten years, writing articles in German and Italian. She also built the Italian-language website together with the managing director. Meanwhile, Alice started working with another Austrian football club. Furthermore, she joined the Association Internationale de la Presse Sportive (AIPS) in 2016. This gives her the opportunity to watch teams and athletes on the ground relatively often. Not only sports betting, but also radio In January 2019, the next step in her professional development followed. For: she started creating premium content on the topic of sports betting. In the process, she finally put out feelers to almost all countries and all continents. And this was not least due to the fact that both German and English-speaking users subscribed to her content. Nevertheless, Alice continued to use her knowledge of Italian, among other things. On the one hand, because she regularly exchanges ideas with Italian colleagues, and on the other, because she works with a web radio station. The Corona crisis had a strong impact on the sports world and on interest in sports betting, primarily in the early days. Therefore, a fresh start was necessary and, on balance, Alice found the fields of activity that suited her best. She also writes articles for an agency on almost all disciplines as well as on eSports and content for a German online medium. Alice is half Austrian and half Italian. That's why she experienced the 1990 World Cup in Italy at first hand. And that awakened her enthusiasm for football.
