Seeking to preserve their top spot, table-toppers Flamengo will take on fellow title-chasers Cruzeiro at Maracana in Sunday's Brasileiro showdown.

Flamengo vs Cruzeiro Betting Tips: FLAMENGO TO WIN

A fascinating nine-game unbeaten streak across all tournaments—claiming eight triumphs in that span—came to an end for Rubro-Negro, who squandered an early lead only to end up empty-handed in a painful 1-2 loss to Juventude away from home.

Even with that setback, Flamengo remain at the summit of the Brasileiro standings with 24 points, though now only on goal difference ahead of second-placed Bahia, making it imperative for them to quickly get back to winning ways.

Returning to their own Maracana gives Sunday's hosts reason for optimism that the midweek disappointment will be short-lived, as Tite's men have displayed exceptional home form by winning six straight competitive fixtures and netting 14 times in the process.

Standing in their way is a Cruzeiro side who have gained significant momentum ahead of their trip to Rio de Janeiro, as they emerged victorious of a close match-up with Atletico Paranaense at Mineirao, beating them 2-1 thanks to strikes from Veron and Vitinho.

Securing that victory preserved their perfect home record—collecting five wins from five matches—but their dismal away performance doesn't bode well ahead of the visit to the league leaders, having taken a paltry five points from their first six trips and suffering three losses.

Part of the chasing pack for the Brasileiro crown, Cruzeiro in fifth will endeavor to erase the four-point deficit to top-placed Flamengo, yet their recent visits to the Maracana bring back bitter memories, having been defeated in six of their last Serie A clashes with Rubro-Negro.

Flamengo rightfully carry the favorite tag into Sunday’s high-profile contest, and they should capitalize on their dazzling home form to claim another three points and maintain their position at the top of the table against one of the least successful visitors this term.
