Playoffs. Round of 16.
Series score 1:0.
In the return leg of the Copa Libertadores last 16, Flamengo will face Tolima. The first match of the confrontation ended with Flamengo's close victory (1:0). That's why the Brazilians will be satisfied with a draw in the upcoming game. However, bookmakers believe that the Red and Blacks will restrain their temper but defeat the Colombians once again.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Finally, Flamengo has found their rhythm and won their three most recent matches - over Tolima in Colombia, America, and Santos in the Brazilian championship. That's how Flamengo climbed to eighth place in the standings, three points behind Fluminense from the Copa Libertadores zone. Four days after the match against Tolima, Flamengo had an away game against Corinthians that was important in terms of the tournament placing. However, a close victory is a slight advantage. We doubt that the coaching staff will risk and field the second lineup. Nobody will set up for a draw in Rio for sure, only for a victory. In the group stage, Flamengo won all three home matches.
The Colombian championship is over, and Tolima concentrates entirely on the Copa Libertadores. True, after 0:1 at home, we don't think the Colombians made it to the quarterfinals because their opponent is too strong. In the group stage, Tolima ended second in Group D. They claimed two away wins over America Mineiro and Atletico Mineiro and one draw (all in overtime).
Expert Betting Tips
Tolima has a long history of away victories over Brazilian clubs, but we expect maximum activity from Flamengo again. Their coaching staff might consider that Tolima has beaten two Brazilian teams in the group stage on the road. What is possible is a goal by the visitors. In the home game, they were active, sent 16 goals, and even scored, but it was canceled because of an offside. We expect an exchange of goals and a victory for Flamengo in the over game.
