Match Preview

In this round of Brazil Serie A, Cuiaba VS Flamengo at home.Flamengo's title defence has not gone to plan so far, having lost two of their opening five matches - those two losses coming in their last three outings.After going down 3-2 to league leaders Bragantino, the Scarlet-Black beat Fortaleza 2-1 to get their campaign back on track, only to then lose 1-0 at Juventude last time out.Newly-promoted Juventude, who had only won one game heading into last weekend's clash, stunned their heavyweight opponents thanks to Matheus Peixoto's unstoppable shot.Flamengo hit the bar and were denied several times by Marcelo Carne, but they ultimately lacked the quality needed in front of goal and are now well off the title pace.Indeed, Rogerio Ceni's men are eight points adrift of Bragantino, although they do have a couple of games in hand on the early pacesetters, who are going to take some stopping.Cuiaba's Rafael Gava celebrates scoring their first goal with teammates June 23, 2021


Cuiaba, another newly-promoted side, will be looking to add to Flamengo's misery on Thursday as they attempt to remain above the relegation zone.The Dourado have yet to pick up a victory in their five games since earning a first promotion to the top tier, though just one of those matches has ended in defeat.Sunday's goalless stalemate with Sport Recife was Cuiaba's third draw in a row, with goals proving to be an issue for the managerless side.Only one side - America Mineiro - have scored fewer goals than Cuiaba's four, though their five goals conceded is among the best in the division.With this being Cuiaba's first-ever season in the Brasileiro, Thursday's encounter will mark the first time these sides have faced off competitively in league competition.


Cuiaba possible starting lineup:Walter; Lucas, Marllon, Paulao, Uendel; Cafu, Gava, Yuri, Pepe, Clayson; Elton.


Flamengo possible starting lineup:Alves; Matheuzinho, Arao, Henrique, Luis; Vitinho, Gomes, Diego, Michael; Pedro, Henrique.
