Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

After a week of roller coaster for Flamengo, the Rio giants return to Campeonato Brasileiro to host them on Sunday Sport Recife.

Last weekend’s heavy home defeat didn’t stop ‘Fla’ from taking a big win in the Copa Libertadores quarter-finals, while their guests are sustained by a rare streak of four games without defeat.


Prediction for this match

After suffering a severe shock at home against Internacional last Sunday, Flamengo traveled to Asuncion to face his last eight opponents in the Copa Libertadores in Olimpia – Inter’s eliminators in the previous round, by the way.

A stormy resurgence last month – after their sluggish start to the Serie A title defense – had seen Renato Gaucho‘s men have amassed an impressive streak of eight straight wins in all competitions; a period in which they scored 27 goals.

It all ended in spectacular fashion, however, when they were beaten 4-0 at the Maracana by Inter, languishing just outside the drop zone before the game.

With two defeats in the break, it got worse and worse for Flamengo as a star striker Gabriel Barbosa was fired and they cashed twice more to slide to fifth place overall – albeit with a few games against the teams above them.

Fortunately for the Rubo Negroes, there was little time to ponder their defeat when they traveled to Paraguay, where they carelessly made Olimpia – Barbosa scored a brace in the 4-1 first-leg win.

In addition to its pursuit of continental supremacy, Fla is aiming for the third consecutive league crown. Gaucho wants to stay at the top of the table. Since successful Rogerio Ceni The former Gremio boss has shown a gold note in the dugout, but last week’s rash will serve as a warning to his team not to rest on their laurels.

Sport Recife Manager Umberto Louzer on May 31, 2021

Sport Recife was able to maintain its positive momentum last time when they picked up a point from a close duel with high-flyer Bragantino at the Estadio Ilha do Retiro.

All in all, Leao has now scored points in each of the last four league games, helping them move just inches from the bottom four in the tightly packed lower half of the Serie A table.

This is the longest undefeated streak Umberto LouzerThe team has teamed up throughout the season and has given hope that they can hold their own better than last season, when they were one point behind in their first year in the first division again.

To underpin this conviction, Sport has not conceded in any of its last four games and despite its low overall rating has the best defensive record in the division.

However, they are now face to face with Flamengo’s turbo-charged line of strikers who seem to simply score at will: even considering Barbosa’s forced absence this weekend, Bruno Henrique and Company have scored three or more goals in six of their last seven games.

Flamengo are expected to be without Robert Piris Da Motta (Ankle), Rodrigo Caio (muscular), Rene (Thigh) and long-term absent Cesar due to an injury this week, but suspension will deprive them of perhaps their greatest attacking talent.

Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa is suspended after his red card against Internacional Michael could Bruno Henrique join, Everton Ribeiro and Giorgian de Arrascaeta in a still fearsome front four.

Defender on loan Bruno Viana, has since tested positive for COVID-19 and must therefore self-isolate.

Traveling to Rio after almost 400 minutes without conceding a goal, sports goalkeeper Mailson has proven to be a flawless champion lately and will start in a likely 4-5-1 formation behind a well-structured four-man defense.

Sander (Foot), Betinho (Knee) and former Sao Paulo striker Neilton (Ankles) will be missed by the visitors.

While they are definitely solid defensively, they have fought for goals themselves and will either come up with a name Mikael or André as the only striker – although the couple has not been shot very effectively in recent weeks.

Flamengo possible starting line-up:
Alves; Isla, G. Henrique, Pereira, Luis; Gomes, Maia; Ribeiro, De Arrascaeta, B. Henrique; Michael

Sport Recife possible starting line-up:
Mailson; Chico, Sabino, Thyere, Hayner; Ze Welison, Marcão; Gustavo, Lopes, Everaldo; André

Probability: Flamengo 2-0 Sport Recife

Aside from their catastrophic collapse against Inter, Flamengo have been on a high lately with goals almost guaranteed for the back-to-back Brasileiro champions.

They can take another win in their quest for their third straight title, but Gabigol’s absence and stingy defense could limit the Rubo Negro to just two goals.
