Looking to extend their run of six games without defeat, Flamengo take a trip to Allianz Parque Stadium to face Palmeiras on Monday.

The hosts, meanwhile, will be looking to get one over their visitors having lost each of the last three meetings between the sides.

Palmeiras resumed their chase for top spot in Serie A last time out when they beat Athletico Paranaense 2-1 on home turf.

Luan and Rony scored either side of Bissoli to condemn the visitors to their fifth defeat on the spin.

Prior to that, Abel Ferreira’s men claimed a comfortable 3-0 win over São Paulo in their Copa Libertadores encounter before losing 2-0 at the hands of Cuiaba.

Palmeiras have now picked up 35 points from 18 league outings and are second in the table, four points behind leaders Atlético Mineiro.

Meanwhile, Flamengo continued their solid form last time out as they cruised to an emphatic 4-0 victory over Santos.

Brazilian forward Gabriel Barbosa put on a superb individual performance as he hit a second-half brace before Andreas Pereira completed the rout in the 84th minute.

It was the second consecutive 4-0 victory for Renato Gaúcho’s side, who saw off Gremio in the first leg of their Copa do Brasil quarter-final tie.

With 31 points from 16 games, Flamengo are fifth in the Serie A table, one point behind the Copa Libertadores places.
