Millonarios vs Flamengo Preview 

Millonarios Preview

Millonarios can put on some bravado, given that the team approaches the clash with Flamengo with 2 wins in a row and a series of 4 consecutive matches without being beaten. However, it is unclear whether this will be the trend for a long time, after Millonarios 5 consecutive losses prior to this unbeaten streak. Alberto Gamero’s team is still in a process of finding a right balance between attack and defence, leaving Millonarios at the 9th place in Colombian Primera A. With the season is still in its infancy, there is plenty of time to reflect, but in the framework of the Copa Libertadores, the results cannot wait.

Flamengo Preview 

Flamengo is flying high this season, maintaining a streak of 16 consecutive matches without a loss. Moreover, the team had a clean sheet in 12 of these matches, indicating high concentration in the defensive lines. In Carioca Serie A, Flamengo cruised past the group stage easily, winning it with 27 points after 11 games. In the playoff stage, Tite’s men were better than Fluminense (2-0, 0-0) and are most likely to reach the final after winning over Nova Iguacu in the first leg (3-0). Thus, it can be seen that Flamengo began its season in almost perfect fashion, which they hope to extend by a successful group stage in Copa Libertadores. Amid the start of the Brasileirão Série A, securing a certain advantage in the main continental cup will serve as a solid base for the upcoming season.
