Flamengo is favorite against Corinthians in Liberta?

O Corinthians hasn’t lost at Neo Química Arena since February 2, when the team was still commanded by Sylvinho and took a turn in the classic against Santos for the Paulista Championship. However, the team that is the only undefeated home team in the Brasileirão will have as an opponent tomorrow (2) for the Liberators O Flamengowho won four of the last six games between them at the Corinthians stadium.

on the podcast Ball Possession #250, journalists Arnaldo Ribeiro, Eduardo Tironi, Juca Kfouri and Mauro Cezar Pereira analyze whether Flamengo favors the best moment to face Corinthians. They also analyze the chances of Atlético-MG and Palmeiras in the other Brazilian clash in the quarterfinals of Libertadores.

Juca Kfouri says that Corinthians has as its great weapon in the confrontation the fans at Neo Química Arena, while Flamengo arrives with the favoritism for the football who has played under the command of Dorival Júnior.

“Corinthians’ weapon is Fiel and Cássio, the difference between the teams doesn’t need to be said. Just look at what Flamengo had to offer on Saturday against Atletico-GO. Team by team, it’s absolutely indisputable, without any cleverness, Flamengo is much better and in that aspect he is the favorite. Now he will have to beat Corinthians in Itaquera, which is not a smooth mission”, says Juca.

“Of course, it can happen that Corinthians ends up eliminating Flamengo, but it is the least likely from a rational point of view. Corinthians will continue without their best player, who is Renato Augusto. Corinthians with its problems, with an aging team and Flamengo is on the rise under the administration of Dorival Júnior”, he adds.

for the columnist UOLCorinthians’ chances include maintaining their six-month unbeaten record in their arena, even with a draw, to try to repeat what Vítor Pereira’s team did against Boca Juniors at Bombonera.

“If Corinthians maintain their unbeaten record in Itaquera, that is to say, if they get a draw against Flamengo and play everything for Maracanã, bet as they bet on Boca Juniors, except that we are talking about incomparably different teams, a bad Boca Juniors against a very good Flamengo again, but the most likely thing is that Flamengo, even because writings are made to be broken, will win again in Itaquera”, he concludes.

Regarding the meeting between Atlético-MG and Palmeiras, Arnaldo Ribeiro considers that this time the team that has the favoritism is the one led by Abel Ferreira, who got the better of last year in the semifinal against Galo de Cuca, which restarted on Sunday with defeat to Internacional. He highlights the risk of ending the season without achievements on the part of the Minas Gerais club, while the São Paulo team has a favorable scenario.

“Atletico-MG fell in the Copa do Brasil to Flamengo with a game that caused sequels, it is not the favorite in the confrontation with Palmeiras in Libertadores and is 10 points away from Palmeiras in the Brazilian, that is, Atlético-MG can in two on Wednesdays, if they don’t play a game different from everything they’ve done so far, this Wednesday at Mineirão, they’ll be eliminated from both cups and at a considerable distance from the leadership of the Brasileiro. In other words, Atlético-MG runs a great risk of not win nothing in the season, even with the investment made and with the maintenance of the players”, says Arnaldo.

It’s a situation that Palmeiras loves to play, in addition to having this absurd history as a visitor in Libertadores, the desperate, exposed and open opponent, Palmeiras loves to play this way. Palmeiras is a mature team, they know how to play and achieved a very important sequence in the Brasileirão at the most important moment of the championship, they managed to stay at the top at the crucial moment”, he concludes.
