Brazil Serie A side Flamengo will look to continue asserting themselves in the Copa Libertadores when they host Paraguay’s Olimpia Asuncion in the 1st leg of their round of 16 matchup. They have been in great form, particularly in front of the home fans at the majestic Estádio do Maracanã where they have won 8 of their last 10 matches across all competitions. They finished 2nd in a strong Group A behind Argentina’s Racing Club. But they certainly have what it takes to be considered serious contenders now that they have made it to the knockout stage.
Olimpia Asuncion finished 6th in the Paraguay top flight division at the end of last season to book themselves the ticket to the group stage of Copa Libertadores where they ended up topping Group H. They are however struggling for form this season and are in the middle of a horrible run that has seen them lose 4 of their last 5 matches overall. They will hope to resuscitate their excellent form in the group stages if they are to advance but that is a tough call in this 1st leg
It’s hard to bet against Flamengo given the form they are in particularly in their backyard. They will be looking to carry a comfortable cushion to the 2nd leg in Paraguay. As a result, we are backing them to overcome a -1 handicap here as our main tip.
