    Flamengo have been the standout team in the Brazilian Serie A this season. On Sunday night, the league leaders face a potentially tough trip to Gremio.

    The home side is fourth place in the table and are looking to consolidate their place in the Copa Libertadores spots for next season. The Porto Alegre are four points clear of fifth-place Sao Paulo and six clear of sixth-place Athletico Paranaense.

    A 1-0 win at Chapecoense means that Renato Gaucho’s team have now recorded five straight Serie A victories. The home sides attacking prowess has seen them score at least twice in four of their last five league outings.

    Gremio’s recent home form has powered their charge for a spot in the Copa Libertadores, as the home side has recorded seven wins in their last nine home outings in the Brazilian top-flight.

    They have also been prolific in front of goal at home in Serie A, scoring at least two goals in all seven of those recent home wins.

    Flamengo are currently 11 points clear of second-place Palmeiras, having played a game more than their title rivals. A victory in this clash would push the visitors a step closer to winning the Brazilian title.

    Jorge Jesus’ team are unbeaten in 20 Serie A games, recording 17 victories in the process while scoring at least two goals in four of their last five outings. Last time out in the league, the visitors drew 4-4 at home against Vasco da Gama. The draw ended a three-game winning run in the league.

    Flamengo’s recent away form has helped their title cause, as they are undefeated in nine league matches on their travels while recording eight wins.

    This could be a pivotal game for the visitors, who Forebet predicts will record a victory in a high-scoring encounter, with both teams scoring.
