Flamengo are leading the Brazilian Serie A championship with a good advantage over their closest rival and they will receive Bahía, who have been getting too tired for this long season.
I can’t stop talking about Flamengo’s year. They are having a tremendous moment this season and they are also a lovely team to watch every week. In the league, they are leading it with 71 points, 5 points over the second placed Palmeiras. Furthermore, Flamengo will play tonight against Botafogo and a victory could extend this gap up to 8 points. Also, they headed to the Copa Libertadores finale two weeks ago after beating Gremio 5-0 in the second leg of the tournament semi-finals for a total result of 6-1, but that is another story.
Before today’s match against Botafogo, Flamengo are leading almost every record on the league. They are the team with more victories, shortest number of defeats, and three of their players are leading the goals scored table: Barbosa is first with 20 goals, Bruno Henrique is second with 15 goals and De Arrascaeta is tied in the 5th place with 11 goals. In short, these three players scored 46 from the total of 64 Flamengo’s mark so far in only 30 matches.
On the other side, Bahía are having some difficulties in their last part of the season. Most recently, they lost 3 games in-a-row and drawn another two. Their last draw was today at home against one of the worst teams of this season, Chapecoense. It was a very strange game where Bahía missed good opportunities and only managed to score at the 85th minute to save one point against the second-to-last team of the league.
The gap between both teams is huge, not only in quality but also in how they are taking these last matches of the season. Besides, the difference in the table is simply ridiculous: Flamengo lead with 71 points while Bahía have only 43, so the favorite team for this match is pretty easy to find.
