Flamengo to win

Since their defeat to Palmeiras in the final of the Paulista championship, Sao Paulo has a winning streak of three games in a row, while the home side has struggled to get positive results.

This makes us think that Sau Paulo will take all three points at home.

Over 2.5 Goals

In the last three matches played by each team, they average three goals per match in the final score. So we are likely to see at least three goals in the Maracana.

BTTS – yes

Both the Flu and the Sonerano have scored at least once in the two Copa Sudamerica games and the first round of the Brasileirao. We predict that both will keep their scoring streak.

Flamengo vs Sao Paulo Preview: Sao Paulo wants it all in the Maracana


On Sunday, coach Paulo Sousa will be looking for the first win in the Brazilian Serie A when they host leaders Sao Paulo. The Fla won their last title in 2020, under the command of Rogerio Ceni, current coach of Sao Paulo.

The home side drew 1-1 in their first matchday one, away to Atletico Goianiense. They fared better in the Copa Sudamerica, beating Talleres de Cordoba 3-1 for their second win of the tournament.

Sao Paulo

For the second matchday, Sao Paulo is counting on the goalscoring form of Argentine Jonathan Calleri, who scored three goals in the first round of the Brasileirão.

Some of the players, who played the match at the Maracana, did not see action in the 2-0 win over Everton in the Copa Sudamericana. Others only came on during the second half, all this to reserve players for the match against Flamengo.
