Corinthians vs Sao Paulo Predictions & Match Preview

Corinthians vs Sao Paulo
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 26th May 2019
Kick-off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Arena Corinthians (Sao Paulo).

Corinthians is in the eighth spot, after delivering a moderate return of two wins, two draws, and a loss.

The last match-day they recorded a win on the road against Athletico-PR, and it was surely a comprehensive performance.

The first goal came in the 14th minute, and despite persistent effort by the hosts to level the scores, Corinthians added one more three minutes from full time.

Sao Paulo possesses a podium spot and will be keen to hold on to that. They, along with topper, Palmeiras, have been the only two teams yet to lose a game this season.

The team will see this tie as an opportunity to put an end to their dismal run against Corinthians.

Corinthians vs Sao Paulo Prediction

Corinthians have been dominating Sao Paulo for quite a long time. They recorded 11 of the last 15 wins, and impressively, 16 of the last 18 wins at this venue.

Also, 11 of the last 12 h2h wins went to teams at home. Importantly, the last six meetings at this venue saw five home wins.

As such, expect a victory for the Corinthians squad. It should be noted though that Sao Paulo is unbeaten this season, and only two teams in this competition of 20 can boast such a claim.

They have also scored in their last eight road games. Moreover, they found the back of the net at this venue in eight of their last nine trips, and eight of the last eleven h2h fixtures had goals at either end of the pitch.

Expect the same to happen this Sunday.
