Millonarios v Flamengo - Copa CONMEBOL Libertadores 2024
Flamengo host Millonarios in Copa Libertadores on Tuesday.

Flamengo entertain Millonarios at Maracanã in their final group-stage game of the Copa Libertadores on Tuesday (May 28). This is a must-win match for the hosts, who are in second place in Group E. They have seven points from five games, the same as third-placed Palestino, so a loss could see them drop to the Copa Sudamericana.

Flamengo made it three wins on the trot last week, with a 1-0 win over Amazonas in the Copa do Brasil, after beating Bolivar 4-0 at home in the Libertadores earlier this month.

Millonarios, meanwhile, have endured a winless run in the competition, suffering two losses in five games. They will finish at the bottom of Group E and will look to sign off for the campaign on a positive note. Nonetheless, they head into the game on a four-game unbeaten run, which is a cause for concern.


Flamengo vs Millonarios Head-to-Head

The two teams met for the first time in the reverse fixture last month, which ended in a 1-1 draw. Flamengo will look to register a home win to take the lead in their head-to-head record.
