*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Flamengo made full use of a one-man advantage to win 6-1 at Vasco da Gama last time out and that wide-margin triumph pushed the victors to the top of the Serie A table. The hosts are 12/25 favourites to win for the sixth time in all competitions this week according to the bookies.

Gremio’s start to the new domestic season has been complicated by their involvement in the Copa Libertadores, though their run of only two wins from their last six fixtures has earned them the underdogs tag this week and they have only a 15.4% chance of winning on Thursday according the market makers.

Everton can star again

With many of his high-profile teammates drafted into international duty at the Copa America, Everton will bear greater responsibility to perform against Gremio this week. The former Benfica attacker and 25-times capped Brazilian international has the quality to shoulder the extra burden and Everton could be a useful anytime goalscorer candidate on Thursday.
