We are already preparing for the matchday 16 of Brasileirão, which will take place in the middle of this week, right after the weekend games. We saw Palmeiras and Botafogo win and close the gap with Flamengo. Now the Fla must recover against a Fortaleza team that is on the rise.

Mengão drew 1-1 with Cuibá at the Maracanã Stadium, reducing the lead over the pursuers to just one point.

Fortaleza defeated a Fluminense team in a terrible moment as they continue to recover from an inconsistent start to the season.

Why bet on Flamengo?

The leaders and the home team will be looking to grab some points and maintain their lead after their last draw. That result takes their season to nine wins, four draws and two losses with 31 points.

They have collected three wins, a draw and a loss in the last five. The curious team is that they share the same form with Botafogo and Palmeiras, but that is a dangerous game to play. They have the same goal difference as the O Fogo (12) and surpass Palmeiras by just one. The conclusion is that the situation is very exciting and that with more mistakes they could quickly end up in third place.

One advantage is their excellent attack, with 27 goals the best in the competition. That is despite Gabigol’s exclusion, as Pedro has stood out as an excellent replacement and another exciting Brasileirão presence who will sooner rather than later attract attention on the old continent. The Brazilian leads the goalscoring charts with seven goals.

Interestingly, Mengão’s most recent eight home games in Série A have all produced two or three goals, with both teams scoring in seven of those encounters.

Why bet on Fortaleza?

Fortaleza will be hoping to keep the momentum going after beating another Rio de Janeiro side, Fluminense. That result improved their tally to six wins, five draws and three losses, putting them in 8th place on the board, just eight points behind the leaders and current opponents. With three wins in their last five games, they have improved their situation dramatically in recent times.

Leao do Pici have had some success at home, but they have struggled away from home. They are still without a win in seven away games in the Série A. Their last success came against a weak São Paulo at the start of the season.

Latest Betting Analysis: Flamengo vs Fortaleza

Fortaleza have had a tough time in the top division recently, conceding nine goals in their previous four games, but still taking one point.

Flamengo are on a decent run, with ten wins in their last 14 home games, while keeping six clean sheets.

We believe the local team is capable of taking the three points, but they will have to work hard for a controversial 2-1 victory.

Go for a Fla win at 1.61. If you bet $100 at these odds, you can get $61 for a total payout of $161.
