The champion from 2020 and the second-placed team from the last season started this season very bad for now. After eight games, they have won only three and collected just 12 points. The only good thing for them is that the current leader Palmeiras isn’t too far with only three points above them. So, they can come closer to them with a couple of good results.
The head-coach Paulo Sousa is already under pressure, and he must improve the team’s results. The Brazilian media also reported that the club from Italy and Qatar wants Paulo Sousa this week.
Flamengo won two consecutive games in Brasil Serie A for the first time this season, and they have a fantastic opportunity to make the third in a row. The win against fierce rival Fluminense in the last round can have a big importance on self-confidence.
During Paulo Sousa’s tenure, one of the problems is that Flamengo is struggling to score goals. This team had the best attack in the league in a previous couple of seasons, and this season they scored only nine goals after eight games.

This is Fortaleza’s fourth season in Brasil Serie A. After one good season, another one is terrible. Fortaleza finished last season in fantastic 4th place when no one expected that, and they had qualified for Copa Libertadores for the first time in their history. But this season is terrible so far for Fortaleza.
They are in 20th place on the table with only two wins after eight games. They have the worst attack in the league with only four goals scored, and they failed to score in four games.
One of the problems for Fortaleza coach Juan Pablo Vojvoda is injuries, and a couple of players will miss this trip to Flamengo. Felipe, Lucas Lima, and Brayan Ceballos Are suspended, and a couple of players are questionable.

Flamengo vs. Fortaleza Prediction
Flamengo started the season terribly, but the form improved with two consecutive wins. They have a fantastic chance to get another three points and for a third consecutive win. The stadium is almost sold out. Over 50.000 fans have already bought a ticket for the game, and everyone is expecting a new three points.
Even without Gabriel Barbosa, Flamengo is a big favorite in this game, and this game can be a good opportunity to improve their scoring record.
Prediction: Flamengo to win & score over 1.5 goals
