Corinthians vs Sao Paulo
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 11th June 2017
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Arena Corinthians, Sao Paulo.
The only undefeated team after 5 rounds Corinthians welcome Sao Paulo on Sunday evening. Both teams grabbed three points in their previous game, so they will be fired up for the local challenge.
Corinthians stand unbeaten with 4 victories and a draw. Their away performance so far is perfect as they registered 3 wins from 3 games on the road, while on the home turf they won four points.
They are first on the table with a one-point lead over Gremio. So far, they only conceded three goals while scoring 10. The hosts are coming off a 2-5 victory over Vasco, so they will be motivated after netting 5 goals which are a huge number in Brazil.
The visitors are in the seventh position with 9 points collected. They have 3 wins and 2 defeats so far and they are yet to share a prey in 2017.
They weren’t convincing on the road – after two games, they are yet to score as they were beaten twice with 1-0 by Cruzeiro and Ponte Preta, respectively.
The hosts are counting on the points in home fixtures – they are yet to concede on the home turf.
Corinthians vs Sao Paulo: Head-to-head
The two sides already met within three competitive matches. Two matches concluded as a 1-1 draw, while Corinthians picked up the 0-2 away victory. Sao Paulo are without a victory at Arena Corinthians since 2014.
Corinthians vs Sao Paulo: Prediction
The guests are visibly struggling on the road. Sao Paulo will be happy with at least a goal, so we could see an open match with at least a goal on both sides. Corinthians seem superior at the moment and their aim is to prolong their unbeaten run as much as possible. Also, they are without Serie A home victory against Sao Paulo since 2015, which is only the additional motivation for the hosts.
