Sao Paulo had an 11 points lead over the home team in the table last season. They were one of the four teams to keep the losing count under 10 in the records. Seven of their 17 overall wins came away from home, which shows that the host’s ground advantage will not intimidate the Tricolors.

Goias vs Sao Paulo Prediction
With their records from the recent seasons, Goias has a good chance to take all three points at home. However, the Tricolor has proved themselves better than the host in the last season. Besides, the visitor has been successful in their recent two h2h visits against Big Greens.
Despite having the home ground advantage, Ney Franco will have a hard time assembling his squad against the Tricolor. Especially, the guest is aware of the tactics to break the host’s advantage in the game and they have proved it in recent times.
The draw no bet over Sao Paulo will probably be the safest bet for the punters. Fernando Diniz’s men have kept a clean sheet against Big Green in the recent h2h clashes. So, the visitor is likely to win either half of the ninety minutes.
