    On Thursday night, Flamengo host Santos in the Brazilian Serie A, as the home side look to stay in touch with the top two in the race for the title.

    Flamengo are currently third place in Serie A, seven points behind league leaders Palmeiras. A recent three-game winless run has hampered the home side’s chances of winning the Brasilian Serie A title.

    Last time out in Serie A, Flamengo suffered a 2-1 defeat at Botafogo, which followed draws against Palmeiras and Sao Paulo.

    The Botafogo game followed a similar trend to Flamengo’s recent outings, as it was high scoring, with five of their last six league matches producing over 2.5 goals.

    Flamengo have built their title challenge on a good home record, as they have won seven of their last nine games on home soil in Serie A. However, the home side’s recent home games have been low scoring, with 11 of their last 14 matches producing under 2.5 goals.

    Santos are currently eighth in the Serie A table and in the Copa Libertadores qualifying spots. However, depending on results elsewhere, a win could see the visitors move into the Copa Libertadores spots.

    Consecutive league defeats against Palmeiras and last time out Chapecoense have hindered their chances of securing a top-six spot this season.

    Their recent league games have been relatively high scoring, with three of their last four games producing over 2.5 goals.

    Santos have a very inconsistent recent away record in Serie A. However, a run of just one win in four outings on their travels is not the greatest record.

    The visitors have been relatively prolific on their travels of late, though, scoring at least twice in four of their last six matches.

    Forebet predicts that Flamengo will record a victory to stay in contention for the Serie A title.
