RB Bragantino vs Flamengo Predictions, Betting, Tips and Odds |  MAY 05, 2024

Flamengo is a gigantic club, but that doesn’t always make it easier. If having more fans, more money and a greater ability to attract the best players are indisputable advantages, the pressure placed on a big club is also proportional to its size. The home defeat against Botafogo in the last round caused great dissatisfaction among the Scarlet-Black fans, as was evident in the Copa do Brasil match against Amazonas.

Without pressure from the fans, RB Bragantino continues its path of consolidated growth in Brazilian football. The Massa Bruta are in third place with eight points, the same as Atlético Mineiro, who are second and one behind leaders Botafogo. In their last outing, Red Bull drew 1-1 in Fortaleza and looked more ambitious than the Ceará side. In the Copa do Brasil, Bragantino disappointed against Sousa and drew 1-1 in the first leg, but the Série D team played with ten players for almost an hour. Pedro Caixinha’s side must put things right in the second leg, but now the focus is on the next meeting with the Mengão. Last season, Bragança defeated Paulista Flamengo 4-0 in one of the most memorable matches of the 2023 Série A.

At the Maracanã, Flamengo, to applause for the return of Gabriel Barbosa after 45 days of absence and whistles for Tite and the team, won 1-0 against Amazonas, who play in the Série B. It was a somewhat lackluster performance by the Cariocas, who had not done so. I haven’t won in three games, which irritated the crowd in the stands. The Vulture the season started well, with a victory in the Campeonato Carioca title, but since the start of the Brasileirão performances have declined, perhaps due to the intense fixture schedule. Everton, Pulgar and Arrascaeta are injured and will not play against Bragantino. Flamengo must win, but the players must also improve the level of their game if they want to win back their legion of fans, who are used to seeing their club play attractive football. A bad result against Red Bull will increase the pressure on the team.

Any outcome is possible in this match, depending heavily on how Flamengo performs. Last season, Bragantino won 4-0 under the leadership of Sampaoli at the Cariocas, but the team under Tite is defensively strong, even when it is not playing well. The game must be very tactical and there is a good chance that there will not be many goals. I bet on a result with a maximum of two goals scored.
