Juventude vs. Flamengo (Sunday, 3.00pm)
Having recovered from a rare defeat last weekend with victory over Fortaleza in midweek, Rogerio Ceni's men are now in search of a sixth success in seven.
We say: Juventude 1-2 Flamengo
Flamengo will be keen to continue their comeback from last weekend's defeat, so can deal with a host of absentees to take advantage of top-flight new boys Juventude.
Shouldering much of the final third responsibility without the inimitable presence of 'Gabigol' alongside him, Bruno Henrique can deliver the goods again to inch Fla a little closer to the top of the standings.
Fluminense vs. Corinthians (Sunday, 8.00pm)
Neither side have enjoyed the greatest start to the season in its early stages, with Fluminense one point and two positions above their forthcoming opponents in ninth place.
We say: Fluminense 1-0 Corinthians
With neither side even averaging one goal for or against so far, it is hard to envisage many goals in this match.
Fluminense could benefit from Corinthians having one eye on their match against city rivals Sao Paulo three days later.
Palmeiras vs. Bahia (Monday, 12.00am)
Both teams have accumulated seven points from their last four league games, and there is just one point separating them in the table.
We say: Palmeiras 2-2 Bahia
Bahia have a poor record in meetings against Palmeiras, but they will take confidence from Friday's victory and will fancy their chances against the hosts, who have just lost their last league game.
Goals are to be expected in Monday's encounter, and we can see a high-scoring draw being played out at the Allianz Parque in Sao Paulo.
Gremio vs. Fortaleza (Monday, 12.00am)
Two sides at opposite ends of the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A table will face each other on Monday, as basement club Gremio host third-placed Fortaleza.
The visitors are hoping to avoid successive league defeats for the first time since February, while Gremio have failed to win any of their last eight games across all competitions.
We say: Gremio 0-2 Fortaleza
Both Gremio and Fortaleza will be looking to win this fixture for different reasons, with the hosts still searching for their first three points of the campaign, while the visitors are hoping to bounce back from last week's defeat and climb closer to the summit.
Fortaleza will be the favourites for Monday's clash and the quality throughout their side should help them secure a comfortable victory at the Arena do Gremio.
Athletico PR vs. Chapecoense (Monday, 12.00am)
The hosts have claimed 12 points from a possible 15 available so far this season, while the visitors have lost three and drawn three of their opening six games.
We say: Athletico Paranaense 3-0 Chapecoense
Neither side will take momentum into this fixture, but Athletico Paranaense have had a much better start to the campaign and will be strong favourites to win on Monday.
We feel that the hosts will have too much quality in the final third for Chapecoense to deal with, and they should be able to seal a comfortable victory in Curitiba.
Santos vs. Atletico Mineiro (Monday, 12.30am)
After finishing third last season, the visitors are keen to mount another title challenge this term but must make up ground lost to the leading sides this week, having taken just one point from two winnable games.
We say: Santos 1-2 Atletico Mineiro
After a difficult few days for Atletico Mineiro, expect them to bounce back and assert their credentials in this fixture against a declining Santos side.
Claiming victory on Sunday would push the visitors closer to the upper echelons of the standings, where they are surely destined to finish come the end of a long and arduous season.
America Mineiro vs. Internacional (Monday, 12.30am)
The hosts have failed to win any of their last 10 matches across all competitions, while the Reds have claimed six of their eight points on the road this season.
We say: America Mineiro 0-1 Internacional
America Mineiro are yet to adapt to life back in the Brazilian top flight and although they will be desperate to claim their first league win of the season, it could be a struggle in this match.
The visitors will be the favourites for this encounter, and we can see them claiming a narrow victory in Belo Horizonte.
Ceara vs. Sao Paulo (Monday, 12.30am)
Ceara take on Sao Paulo in the Brasileiro Serie A on Sunday.
The visitors have endured a wretched start to the campaign so far, currently sitting in the relegation zone having only earned three points from six matches.
We say: Ceara 1-2 Sao Paulo
We think Sao Paulo can take advantage of Ceara's COVID-19 outbreak by registering their first league win of the season.
Crespo's side showed green shoots of improvement - certainly offensively - last time out, which can be built upon in the coming weeks.
Sport vs. Cuiaba (Monday, 12.30am)
The hosts' only victory so far this campaign came on home soil against Gremio earlier this month, while the visitors – who will be playing their fourth successive match on the road – have drawn their last two away games.
We say: Sport Recife 1-1 Cuiaba
Both sides have yet to get going in the top-flight this season and will hoping that their fortunes can turn around quickly, starting with a win in Monday's encounter. However, with little to separate the two teams, a score draw could be on the cards at the Estadio Retiro Island.
