Their last home game in the league against Fortaleza finished in a similar scoreline after Gabriel grabbed a neat brace in the second half.

Flamengo vs Goias Prediction
The clash on Sunday is likely to see the hosts come out on top with the win and three points in the bag at the last blast of the whistle.
The home team have collected maximum points from all of their games on home soil so far, and have scored ten goals while conceding just four. They also collected a clean sheet in their last game, and are certain to restrict their visitors from finding the back of the net.
The visiting side have been dismal in their last three games on the road and have returned a win just once.
The squad have also conceded more than what they have scored in their outings so far, and have seen a goalless first half in their last two games.
Considering that the hosts have been consistent in finding the back of the net more often in the second half, we can expect a stalemate in the opening forty-five minutes on Sunday as well, followed by a goal and the win for the home side at the end of the ninety minutes.
