Palmeiras vs Flamengo Preview 

Palmeiras Preview

Palmeiras has started the season exceptionally well, with only 2 defeats in regular time - against Santos in Paulista Series and against Internacional in the last round of Brasileirão Série A. There was also a loss against Sao Paulo in the Brazilian Supercup, but the regular time ended with 0-0, with Palmeiras losing only in a penalty shootout. In general, the team currently performs well in all the competitions, including Copa Libertadores, indicating that Abel Ferreira did a good job during the break. The team wants to keep this momentum going and amid the leaving of its main star Endrick to Santiago Bernabeu in the summer, Palmeiras wants to make the most until the wonderkid’s departure.

Flamengo Preview 

Flamengo secured two out of two wins in the beginning of the championship, including a dramatic win over Atletico Goianiense in the first round (2-1), when Pedro scored a decisive goal in 90+13 minute. Tite has clearly indicated that this season’s goals for the team are Serie A and Copa Libertadores. Both of the trophies have not been in the Flamengo’s pocket for some time, with the last win in the championship was in 2020, while Copa Libertadores was claimed by the team in 2022. Unlike previous years, Flamengo looks more cohesive, thanks to Tite’s expertise and depth of squad, especially in the midfield area. In the upcoming clash, Flamengo will try to capitalise on the result of the previous match, when Flamengo outclassed Palmeiras in the most confident way - 3-0.
