      Tip Reasoning

      Flamengo briefly threatened to hit a patch of good form back in July, but this period ended up being shortlived.

      Since their 3 match winning streak then, they have won just 1 of their last 5 matches in all competitions. 3 of these 5 games have ended in defeat for the 5 time Serie A champions.

      It looks unlikely that they will return to being Brazilian champions any time soon, as they currently lie way down the table in 13th place.

      Their return of 23 points in 19 games just isn’t good enough, and they are actually only 4 points above the relegation zone.

      Should they win on Sunday, they could move as high as 10th position in the table. But if they lose they could drop to 16th position, just outside of the drop zone.

      Sao Paulo are in a better position in the Serie A than their opponents, but their form isn’t any better at the moment.

      They sit in 6th position in the table, only 9 points adrift of league leaders Corinthians and just 2 points behind Fluminense, who occupy the last of the Copa Libertadores qualification spots.

      However, their form is declining. They, like Flamengo, have only won 1 of their last 5 matches in all competitions, with 3 ending in defeat.

      This poor form will need to be turned around quickly if they are to challenge the frontrunners of the Serie A, as at the moment the only thing keeping their position up is their good form early on in the season.

      Sao Paulo have the upper hand in terms of historic results. Flamengo haven’t beaten the visitors since 2012, with Sao Paulo winning 3 of the 5 games played since then.

      They also have the form of Alexandre Pato to rely on. He scored last Thursday in Sao Paulo’s 2-0 win over Figueirense to take his league goals tally to 8 for the season. This is the 2nd best in the Serie A.

      I think the superior squad quality of Sao Paulo will be enough to nullify the home advantage on Sunday, and odds of 10/11 for a Sao Paulo Win or Draw Double Chance look like they offer a lot of value.
