Scarlet-Black approach the match against Steel Tricolor on a four-match winning streak. In Copa Libertadores, Mengão was stronger than Universidad Católica and Sporting Cristal. In the Brazilian championship, they beat Goias and Fluminense. Before the start of Sunday's pool, Mengão are 10th in the championship standings, two points behind São Paulo in the Copa Libertadores zone. If Flamengo defeat Fortaleza, they will definitely climb into the top six. Flamengo's home stats are 10th in the division, +2=1-1, 4-2 goal difference.
Tricolor noticeably lack stability. In the last five games, the guests-to-be have two losses, two wins, and one draw. In the Brazilian championship in this period, there have been losses to Fluminense and Ceara, and a draw with Juventude. That is, there's not good results even against not very top-tier teams. Not surprisingly, Fortaleza sits at the bottom of the division standings with two points. Fortaleza's away statistics are also the worst in the league, with three losses in three games on a 2-6 goal difference.
