Flamengo and Fortaleza are set to clash in the 16th round of the 2024 Brasileiro season. As league leaders, Flamengo aim to secure a win against an improving Fortaleza side.

Here's a detailed analysis of both teams, their current form, and predictions for the upcoming match.

Flamengo tops the Brasileiro table with a strong performance this season, although their lead has been cut to just one point after a recent draw.

Fortaleza, on the other hand, sits in eighth place but remains in contention for a Copa Libertadores spot.
