The highly anticipated Brasileiro clash between Athletico Paranaense and Flamengo will take place this Sunday at the Alinja Arena. Flamengo, currently at the top of the table, aims to extend their winning streak to seven consecutive matches across all competitions.

Athletico Paranaense, fourth in the league, is eager to leverage their home advantage to gain crucial points.

Current Form

Athletico Paranaense

Athletico Paranaense has had a mixed run in recent games. Despite three defeats in their last four matches across all competitions, they have won three out of their last four league games.

Their latest league victory, a 3-1 win over Criciuma, highlights their potential to challenge the league leaders.

Notably, they boast the best defensive record in the top five, conceding only five goals this season.

Flamengo

Flamengo is in exceptional form, having won their last six matches in all competitions.

They recently secured a 2-1 victory against Gremio, demonstrating their consistency and resilience.

With 17 points from eight matches, Flamengo leads the league, but they face stiff competition with close pursuers in the standings.

Team News

Athletico Paranaense

Athletico Paranaense will be without goalkeeper Bento, who is on international duty with Brazil.

Additionally, Agustin Canobbio, Renan Viana, and Petterson are suspended. The team will rely on Gonzalo Mastriani, who has been in fine form with four league goals this season.

Possible Starting Lineup: Linck; Godoy, Rocha, Heleno, Esquivel; Fernandinho, Erick; Nikao, Zapelli, Christian; Mastriani

Flamengo

Flamengo faces several absences due to injuries and international call-ups. Allan and Ayrton are sidelined with thigh injuries.

Key players like Erick Pulgar, Nicolas De La Cruz, Matias Vina, Guillermo Varela, and Giorgian De Arrascaeta are away on international duty for the Copa America.

Everton’s fitness is also in question, with Bruno Henrique likely to replace him if needed.

Possible Starting Lineup: Rossi; Wesley, Bruno, Luiz, Pereira; Ortiz, Araujo; Gerson, Lorran, Henrique; Pedro

Prediction

This match promises to be a closely contested battle. While Flamengo’s recent form is impressive, Athletico Paranaense's strong home record cannot be ignored.

They have secured 12 points from four home matches, conceding just once. Given these factors, a draw seems a plausible outcome.
