FLMI vs SAPL Dream11: The 1-0 defeat against Corinthians could have its repercussions if we consider that second-placed Flamengo can cut the deficit down to just two points with the win in their game-in-hand. That's the main reason why Sao Paulo can't afford to drop games, not when Flamengo are flying so high in recent games. Paulo must continue to win games to get the hold of their destiny firm and in their own hands.
Fluminense FC are also in need to get a consistent run. They are four points away from Copa Libertadores automatic qualification. In fact, there's an outside chance of them winning the league, for a win here could trim the gap to just 10 points. Considering 11 rounds will be left after this round and teams have fallen from a stronger position in the past, anything can happen still. This match will be played at the iconic Maracanã Stadium on early Sunday morning (IST). Here is FLMI vs SAPL Dream 11 Match Prediction.
