On Saturday night, Flamengo host Fluminense in a Rio derby in the Brazilian Serie A, as the home side look to enhance their title chances.

Flamengo are currently third-place in the Serie A table, four points behind leaders Palmeiras. The home side’s recent league form has been inconsistent, but last time out they recorded a 3-0 win at Corinthians.

The title challengers are currently five games unbeaten in the league, having recorded three wins and two draws.

The home side also has a stellar recent home record in Serie A, winning 11 of their 14 league games on home soil. In fact, they have suffered just three defeats in their last 24 home games in the Brazilian top-flight.

A key to Flamengo’s recent good form has been a decent defensive record, as the home side have now kept clean sheets in 12 of their last 18 league games on home soil.

Fluminense’s record in Serie A is a mixed one, but the visitors have won just three of their last eight games in the Brazilian top-flight. Their recent league games have been relatively high scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four matches.

Last time out in Serie A, the visitors recorded a 4-0 home win over Parana, which leaves them eighth place in the table.

Fluminense have a poor recent away record, as they have won just four of their last 26 matches on their travels in Serie A. However, they did win their last away game in the league, beating Chapecoense 2-1.

Their recent away games in Serie A have been high scoring, with over 2.5 goals in three of their last four games on their travels. Both teams have also scored in 15 of their last 18 matches on the road in the Brazilian top-flight.

Forebet predicts that Flamengo will further their title chances by recording a victory in a high scoring encounter.
