Fortaleza vs. America Mineiro (Wednesday, 10.00pm)
The hosts can move into fourth with a victory, with the visitors looking to put greater distance between themselves and the relegation zone.
We say: Fortaleza 2-1 America Mineiro
We expect Fortaleza to bounce back with a win against America Mineiro having suffered defeat last time out.
Vojvoda's side do possess a little more quality than their forthcoming opponents, who will be aiming to make it three wins on the bounce on Wednesday.
Bahia vs. Juventude (Wednesday, 10.00pm)
Their visitors have made a bright start to life in the top flight but lost their first game in five at the weekend to fall two points behind the hosts.
We say: Bahia 3-1 Juventude
A confident Bahia side come into this fixture among the league's top scorers and should have enough firepower to dispense with modest opponents on home turf.
Juventude have given a good account of themselves since being promoted to the top flight, but are not a team packed with goalscoring prowess, so are set to suffer back-to-back defeats within the space of a week.
Bragantino vs. Cuiaba (Wednesday, 10.00pm)
Unbeaten in Serie A so far, the Red Bull-backed club have won six of their first nine fixtures as they aim for a first-ever title, while their visitors are yet to win and find themselves languishing in the relegation zone.
We say: Bragantino 2-0 Cuiaba
Bragantino keep on exceeding expectations and should be nailed on to maintain their unbeaten start to the Serie A season on Wednesday. They can find goals from any one of several candidates, and are set to continue their upward trajectory in a ground-breaking campaign for the club.
Also relative newcomers to the big-time, Cuiaba lack the financial clout their hosts can boast, so will fall to another loss and post a further blank scoresheet too.
Palmeiras vs. Gremio (Wednesday, 11.00pm)
The hosts sit third after three successive victories, while their sluggish visitors have toiled to a tally of just two league points so far.
We say: Palmeiras 2-1 Gremio
Coming into this encounter in wildly contrasting form, one of the division's form sides meets one of four clubs yet to taste victory.
Allied to home advantage, their superior start to the campaign and a significant threat in front of goal makes Palmeiras strong favourites to claim maximum points, while desperate Gremio will have to wait a while longer to claim their first league win.
Atletico Mineiro vs. Flamengo (Wednesday, 11.00pm)
Flamengo have two games in hand on their interstate rivals and can move one point behind them in the table with a victory.
We say: Atletico Mineiro 1-1 Flamengo
We can envisage a share of the spoils on Wednesday, with neither side wanting to lose this fierce interstate rivalry.
Both sides have been in decent form so far this season, with Flamengo needing to capitalise on their games in hand in order to climb the table once they receive the opportunity to do so.
Atletico GO vs. Sport (Wednesday, 11.15pm)
Atletico GO head into the match in eighth position with one game in hand on all seven teams above them in the table, while Sport Recife are only one point and one place above the relegation zone.
We say: Atletico Goianiense 1-0 Sport Recife
Neither side are scoring or conceding too many goals so far this season, so we expect a close encounter on Wednesday.
However, Atletico GO clearly have more momentum at present, so they should be able to edge the proceedings.
Fluminense vs. Ceara (Thursday, 1.30am)
Surprisingly, the hosts find themselves behind their forthcoming opponents on goal difference after nine matches of the current campaign.
We say: Fluminense 2-0 Ceara
We expect Fluminense to have taken plenty of confidence from their narrow win over fierce rivals Flamengo at the weekend.
Ceara will likely prove to be dogged opponents, but there is no doubting that the hosts possess greater quality to put their opponents to the sword and climb above them in the table in the process.
Internacional vs. Sao Paulo (Thursday, 1.30am)
After disappointing starts to their Serie A campaigns, Inter sit 14th in the standings, while their visitors are mired in the relegation zone.
We say: Internacional 2-1 Sao Paulo
Inter must take advantage of Sao Paulo's current malaise this week, as they have made a stuttering start themselves and need to make up ground lost on the clubs above them in the table.
Traditionally one of Brazil's superclubs, the visitors have made a listless start to the season, which shows no sign of slowing due to a lack of final-third potency - they will have to wait a little longer for their first league win.
