Corinthians vs. Fortaleza (Saturday, 8.00pm)
Fortaleza sit in fifth position - one place above their opponents - and they will be looking to bounce back after suffering a defeat last weekend.
We say: Corinthians 2-1 Fortaleza
Corinthians are in supreme form at home, and it is difficult to predict anything other than a victory for the hosts on Saturday as they look to win their fifth consecutive home game.
Internacional vs. Gremio (Saturday, 10.00pm)
The football-obsessed city in the south of Brazil will come to a standstill when the battle commences at Estadio Beira-Rio, and the visitors are in desperate need of points to salvage their Serie A status.
We say: Internacional 1-0 Gremio
An opportunity to pile further misery on their most loathed opponents cannot be missed by Internacional - particularly when their need for maximum points is growing greater due to recent results.
Gremio do not provide enough of a threat in the final third, with only 24 goals so far telling the tale of a grim season, which could be about to get much grimmer if derby defeat leads to demotion in December.
Fluminense vs. Sport (Sunday, 12.00am)
After losing their last two games, Fluminense will aim to get back to winning ways when they welcome Sport Recife to the Maracana on Saturday.
Relegation-threatened Sport Recife enter the weekend in 17th place, and they will be looking to build upon the win that they picked up at home last weekend.
We say: Fluminense 1-0 Sport Recife
Fluminense will be confident heading into the contest after winning three of their last five home games, and with Sport Recife struggling away from home of late, we think that the hosts will collect a victory on Saturday.
