Atletico Mineiro and Flamengo RJ will square off at the Estadio Raimundo Sampaio on Sunday at 21:15 (UK Time), with both aiming to return to winning ways in Serie A.
Atletico Mineiro have won just once in five league outings and head into this clash on the back of a three-game winless streak. They lost 3-0 on the road at Palmeiras on Monday, which was the second game in a row in which they have failed to score. They have struggled in both attack and defence lately, having conceded six goals and scored just once in the process. However, Atletico Mineiro have been a completely different team at the Estadio do Morumbi, where they are currently undefeated in 14 competitive fixtures. They have won 12 games during this run and have scored at least two goals in 10 of them.
Meanwhile, Flamengo RJ have been flying high throughout this Serie A campaign, although their recent form hasn’t been great. They managed to win just once in four league games and have suffered an awful 1-4 home defeat against Sao Paulo last time out in the Serie A. Anyhow, they did well to bounce back with a 3-2 home victory against Athletico-Pr in the second leg of their Copa do Brasil in midweek. Despite the recent struggles, Flamengo find themselves second in the league table tied on 35 points with the current leaders Internacional and just three points ahead of Sunday’s opponents. It’s hard to say if Flamengo RJ will get a victory here despite the fact they are unbeaten in six competitive trips at the moment.
Can Atletico-MG put an end to their four-game winless streak in Serie A? Or will Flamengo RJ extend their unbeaten away run in the league to five games?

Eduardo Vargas has just joined Atletico Mineiro, but he won’t be registered in time for this match. Diego Tardelli is still missing through injury, but recent goalscorer Keno is back after serving his suspension and we likely see him in the starting line up.
Diego, Rodrigo Caio and Giorgian de Arrascaeta are all sidelined with injuries, while Gabriel Barbosa is a doubt ahead of this clash with Atletico-MG. The positive thing is that Maia and Arao are both back in the Flamengo squad after serving a suspension last time out.
