Expert Betting Tips
As we wrote above, Flamengo is happy with a defeat with a minimum score in the upcoming meeting. However, we strongly doubt that Mengao will play to keep the score down, even in the home crowd. On the contrary, we think the Red and Black, just as they did against Velez Sarsfield, will do everything they can to win another. And note that matches against Flamengo rarely end unproductive.
