Flamengo vs Goias
Competition: Brazil Serie A
Date: 14 July 2019
Kick-off: 16:00 CET
Thirty hours before kickoff, Flamengo had sold close to 60,000 tickets for this match, which gives you an idea over the excitement surrounding Jorge Jesus’ first game at Maracana. Fla drew 1-1 with Athletico Paranaense midweek, in their Copa do Brasil quarterfinals first leg, a game in which both Diego and Everton Ribeiro came off the bench to improve things in the second half, so much that both are expected to start against Goiás. The other nine should be Diego Alves, Rafinha, Léo Duarte, Rodrigo Caio, Renê, Cuéllar, De Arrascaeta, Bruno Henrique and Gabigol. Fla are on 17 points from nine matches in the Serie A, clearly behind leaders Palmeiras, but the season is still young, and with Jorge Jesus taking charge, plus, new players getting signed, there is a lot of optimism among the fans.
Who would have thought that Goiás would be in the top 6 nine matches into the season, having a game in hand as well… They are on 15 points, having won four of their last five matches. Important detail: all four wins were at home. The only time they left it, to visit CSA, they lost 1-0. Claudinei Oliveira is expected to have Tadeu, Daniel Guedes, Yago, Rafael Vaz, Jefferson, Geovane, Yago Felipe, Giovanni Augusto, Michael, Kayke and Leandro Barcia in the starting lineup. Attacking midfielder Léo Sena has recovered from his injury, but according to reports he will remain on the bench, as he is not yet match-fit, at least not to start. Goiás definitely need to improve their record on the road, but most probably, this won’t start happening this weekend, against one of the strongest teams in the country.

Two wins for Flamengo, one for Goiás (back in 2010), and two draws, in the last five games between these two in Rio de Janeiro.

I would be very-very surprised if Flamengo didn’t win this game, without disrespecting Goiás.
Flamengo vs Goias: Betting Tips
Given that a simple Flamengo win pays less than 1.40, I would risk with “Flamengo and under 3.5 goals”, at 1.97, expecting them to score up to three goals, and most probably not concede.Do you want daily and profitable Betting Tips?
