Flamengo host Botafogo this Sunday, in one of the Rio de Janeiro’s most fiercest derbies. Much more than 3 points is on the line when these two clash. It’s derby day in in Rio as Flamengo host Botafogo in the “Clássico da Rivalidade”. Whilst not as internationally acclaimed as some of the cities other games, there is definitely a deep hatred between the two and more than three points will be on the line come Sunday afternoon.

A win here in front of the home crowd would be another step towards getting over Copa Libertadores heartache in the Flamengo camp. Fans of “Mengão” were devastated to see their team crash out of South America’s premier club competition to a 92nd minute goal, and with this the first game on home soil since said match, the squad will be desperate to cheer them up.

Flamengo’s main focus this season will now be the league, as they look to mount another title challenge after coming third last season. Performances have been fairly solid so far, picking up a point from tricky looking games at home to Atletico Mineiro and away at Atletico PR, as well as hammering newly promoted Atletico GO 3-0. Confidence should be high coming into this local clash, given Ze Ricardo’s troops arrive as kings of the city after winning the Campeonato Carioca in pre-season.

That’s not something Botafogo will need reminding of, given they were eliminated at the semi final stage of the Carioca by Flamengo. Players and fans alike will now be itching for revenge but face an uphill battle, considering they’ve not defeated their rivals in five and have lost three of the last four in enemy territory.

You feel that “Bota” will be hard pressed to match last season’s fifth placed finished, taking into account they have lost the momentum of coming up as a newly promoted side and still remain in Libertadores action after sneaking through the groups. The squad does not have the same depth that those likely to finish around the top places have and could struggle once continental action resumes again. Nonetheless Jair Ventura’s men have made a decent opening to the season, picking up two wins from three, and for now can at least solely focus on domestic affairs.

It should be a cracking match. The stadium will be packed and the atmosphere charged. Botafogo will be gunning for revenge, but face a Flamengo outfit that has won 12 of the last 15 on home soil.

We do fancy the host to win the game, but prefer to put our money on both nets being found. 6 of Flamengo’s last 7 at home have seen goals at both ends, and having won both of the semi final legs in the Carioca by a scoreline of 2-1 that seems the most likely outcome. Back both teams to score in a 2-1 home win.

Head To Head
The sides have met on 311 occasions officially, with Flamengo holding 113 wins to Botafogo's 93. The hosts are on a 5 match unbeaten run against their rival and have already beaten them 2-1 twice this year.
