Flamengo vs Atlético Mineiro Betting Tips: Form Guide

Flamengo Come Into This Match After A Bad Few Games  

Flamengo have had a decent season so far. They’re a few places ahead of where they finished up last time and, in theory at least, they are close enough points-wise to the top spot to still make this final stretch really count. Atlético Mineiro is once again nipping at their heels, although Flamengo still remain the favourites in the majority of Flamengo vs Atlético Mineiro match previews. This is especially surprising considering that their recent form hasn’t represented their best.

Around this time last month, they lost 3-0 comprehensively to Atlético-PR, a team at a much lower standing than their upcoming opponents. After which, they barely scraped by with a 1-0 win over Vitoria and drew 2-2 against América MG. If Flamengo have struggled against these teams that recently, then Flamengo vs Atlético Mineiro betting tips for today should perhaps be a touch less confident about a win here.

The worse was yet to come though, as they followed this up with back-to-back losses; 1-0 against Ceará and 2-1 against Internacional. They finally got a 2-0 win over Chapecoense-SC, but even that momentum didn’t go on for long, as they come into this contest having ground to a 1-1 halt against Vasco. Flamengo have had a good season, but a terrible month. We’ll see whether Atlético Mineiro are able to take advantage of that fact.

Atlético Mineiro Have More Positives Than Negatives This Season

Just like their opponents, Atlético Mineiro had a steady yet productive season. Although, it is fair to say that the gap between them is justified, as Flamengo have arguably been better throughout most of this year. In terms of their recent performance record though, it’s a different story.

If we go from around this time last month, we can see that they bested Botafogo RJ 3-0 to capitalise on their previous 3-1 win against Santos. Just like their opponents, they were then held to a stalemate against Vasco – 0-0 this time – and suffered a close 1-0 loss to Vitoria. It is worth pointing out that Flamengo managed to beat this team mere days apart from this encounter. A 1-1 draw against Corinthians followed, then another set of back-to-back wins. They went 1-0 against São Paulo and 3-1 against Atlético PR – the same Atlético PR who handed Flamengo a rough 3-0 loss.

You can see, when comparing how they both fared against different teams on any given night, why this is such a tough one to call. And just like their opponents, the away side stutter towards this match off the back of a draw, having gone 0-0 with Cruzeiro. So, it’s a slight advantage for Atlético Mineiro in recent performances we’d say – being more of a mix – while Flamengo have a long-term edge.

Flamengo vs Atlético Mineiro Preview: Recent Meetings

If you were hoping that their head-to-head meetings would make determining Flamengo vs Atlético Mineiro betting tips easier, we’re afraid we have some bad news. These two are incredibly evenly matched in their most recent encounter.

Flamengo won 1-0 earlier this year but before that, Atlético Mineiro netted a 2-0 victory. Go further back and you’ll find back-to-back draws; 1-1 and 2-2 in 2017 and 2016 respectively. That year, Flamengo pulled ahead with two 2-0 wins, but this is met with back-to-back 4-1 and 2-0 wins for Atlético Mineiro the year before.

It is genuinely historically interesting how these two have managed to remain so close for so long. Unfortunately, we are unable to say either team really has an advantage when it comes to recent meetings.

Flamengo vs Atlético Mineiro Prediction: Flamengo Edges Victory

We are quite surprised – not that Flamengo are the favourites to win, but the extent to which that seems to be the case. In all honesty, their record is about as close as you can get, and to be confident in either outcome, or even a draw, seems unwise given their head-to-head and tournament histories.

Nonetheless, this is about who is most likely to win. Ultimately, although Atlético Mineiro have had a slightly better month – but in all honesty, not by that much – Flamengo have had more of a distance between them and their upcoming opponents over the majority of this year and season. It’s not much of a difference but, based on that, our pick for the most likely outcome and therefore our Flamengo vs Atlético Mineiro prediction is that Flamengo win.

However, don’t be surprised if this comes down to an absolute razor’s edge. History has taught us time and time again that when these two collide, you should take nothing for granted and assume that anything could happen.
