Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Both teams to score – no
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
In a showdown between two Brazilian heavyweights on Saturday night, Fluminense will welcome Corinthians to the Maracanã this weekend.
Starting with the hosts, last seen putting in another eye-catching display, Fluminense are in the midst of what has become a recent purple patch. Eventually grabbing a late 1-0 win away at Botafogo, Head Coach Fernando Diniz finds his side enjoying a three-match domestic winning run. Skyrocketing their way up the Serie A table and with their sights set on clinching a top-four finish this time around, the Tricolor have also impressed with their recent displays on home soil. Including a 2-0 victory against Avai on June 19th, Saturday’s hosts have won three of their last four domestic contests at the Maracanã. Likewise, along with now conceding just a single stike in any of their last four outings, it should also be highlighted that Saturday’s hosts have seen just one of their last five matchups finish with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, while Corinthians might have been disappointed to have only played out a 0-0 stalemate against South American giants Boca Juniors in midweek, the Timão did put in a largely rugged display. Once again sat in pole position to clinch a top-four finish this season, Head Coach Vítor Pereira finds his side in the midst of a six-match unbeaten run. Likewise, booking their spot in the semi-final of this year’s Copa do Brasil thanks to a 4-0 romp against Santos on June 22nd, the São Paulo-based outfit have also continued to shine with their displays at the back. It should be highlighted, Saturday’s guests have now recorded a clean sheet in each of their last five outings across all formats. In a showdown between two sides showing some real defensive resolve, don’t be surprised to see chances come at a premium here.
Bet: Both teams *not* to score at Fluminense vs Corinthians 7/10 for Saturday’s Brazil Seire A matchup @ 888sport
