In the upcoming semi-final fixture of Copa do Brasil, Sao Paulo will be taking on Flamengo at the Cícero Pompeu de Toledo Stadium. With Sao Paulo playing at home this time, we can back them to win and dominate the visitors. Flamengo, on the other hand, will be confident of keeping their winning form against Sao Paulo certain and concrete. When the last time these two played against each other, a few weeks back, Flamengo won (0-2).
Sao Paulo - Coming off a Defeat Against Santos FC (LDWDL)
Though Sao Paulo is playing at home and is confident of winning, they don’t have a pretty engaging and favorable game form to back themselves. Going in the fixture against Flamengo, Sao Paulo is coming off a loss against Santos FC (1-0). Before that, Sao Paulo managed to settle the game as a draw against America MG (2-2). Their only win in the last five games played came against Red Bull Bragantino (3-0). Though Sao Paulo leads the head-to-head wins with 11 wins over Flamengo, they will be unlikely to come hard at the opposition.
