Flamengo vs Athletico Paranaense Match Analysis & Prediction
14/09/2023 3:30 am
Matchday 23 of the 2023 Brasileiro Serie A season will begin with a rematch between Flamengo and Athletico Paranaense on Thursday morning at Estadio Kleber Jose de Andrade.
Last time out, Mengao claimed a 2-1 victory over league leaders Botafogo, moving them up to fourth in the table, five points clear of the upcoming opponents in seventh, after El Paranaense played out a 1-1 draw with Atletico Mineiro.
Flamengo are starting to climb up the Serie A standings, unbeaten in four successive league matches, and without a defeat in their last five competitive games.
Mengao have not lost a competitive home game since April 30 (3-2 against Botafogo), conceding just once in their last four matches played in Rio de Janeiro, with all four of those encounters taking place at the Maracana.
For a third successive game in the league, Athletico Paranaense came away with just a single point two Saturdays ago, the fifth draw for them in Serie A in their last six games.
Winning the league could be out of sight for this team, who are currently 17 points behind Botafogo, but claiming a place at the 2024 Libertadores is well within their reach as they currently trail Bragantino for a qualifying spot in that competition by a single point.
A 2-0 victory over Vasco da Gama on July 23 ended a five-game domestic losing run for El Paranaense in Rio, a run which dates back to 2021, with this team scoring just once during that slide.
Flamengo vs. Athletico Paranaense Head to head
In the 63 previous meetings between these two teams, Flamengo have claimed 26 victories while Athletico Paranaense have won 24, and they have drawn in 13. Paranaense have scored 80 goals and conceded 84 in the process.
