Flamengo is a team that has five Serie A titles in the Brazilian Championship, the latter being won in 2009, besides three Brazilian Cups titles and a Copa Libertadores title won in 1981. In the current 2018 season, the team has been making a good campaign being in the fourth place. For the Brazilian Cup, the team reached the semifinal after beating the strong Gremio with a draw in Rio Grande do Sul by 1-1 and then with a victory in Maracana by 1-0. Flamengo reaches this semi-final with great confidence and will have to overcome Corinthians Paulista (SP)'s strong defensive sector. We believe that Corinthians Paulista (SP) will be very protective and we will have a scoreless first half or at most one goal scored.
