Flamengo vs Corinthians
Preview

Flamengo won (2-0) in the first leg last week thanks to goals from Georgiana de Arrascaet and Gabigol.

With a two-goal lead on aggregate and home advantage, the club are strong favorites to advance to the semi-finals.

They also extended their unbeaten streak to eight games in all competitions with a (2-0) win over Sao Paulo in Brazil’s Serie A on Saturday.

Corinthians were only able to save a point in the away game against Avai on Saturday. They need to dig deeper if they want to start a comeback in this matchup.

It is worth noting that in six of the last seven face-to-face meetings of these clubs, Flamengo was stronger. And only once during this period, Victoria was on the side of Corinthians.
