Flamengo vs. Cristal Match Analysis and Prediction

When the Brazilian side Flamengo welcomes the Peruvian team, Sporting Cristal, to the Maracana for their Copa Libertadores contest, they will be aiming to maintain their unbeaten record in this tournament with kickoff at 3:30 am.

  So far, Fluminense has had a fantastic run in the Copa Libertadores, winning four from five games. The 2019 South American champions began their group stage with three consecutive victories before a 2-2 draw against Talleres halted their winning run.

Although they managed to return to winning ways on matchday four, thrashing Universidad Catolica 3-0 thanks to goals from Willian Arao, Everton Ribeiro, and Pedro.

The Brazilian side enters the final matchday knowing that they will finish top of the group, but the hosts will still be motivated to maintain their unbeaten record. Fluminense will be confident that they can clinch all three points after winning both of their home group games by a combined 6-1 scoreline.

Sporting Cristal is two points from qualifying for the knockout rounds of the Copa Libertadores. The Peruvian team began the group phase with three consecutive defeats but played out back-to-back draws to get themselves on the board.

Although they will bow out of South America’s premier competition, Tuesday’s visitors still have the chance to qualify for the last 16 of the Copa Sudamericana.
