Racing Club has been offered a chance to be the table-toppers in Group E with a win in the upcoming clash in Copa Libertadores.
But defeating Sao Paulo is easier said than done for the host despite being unbeaten in the campaign. The visitor has conceded no goals in their two appearances so far this season while featuring an average of 2.5 goals in their schedule.
The home team was held back on the road in a 1-1 draw with Rentistas for the opening match. However, the host made a comeback with a 2-1 win at home against the likes of Sporting Cristal. In the meantime, Sao Paulo is on a two-game winning streak in the campaign, following a 2-0 win at home against the likes of Rentistas in the previous encounter in Copa Libertadores.
The host has conceded two goals against the three scored in their two attempts. This shows a mixed form in the campaign for the Argentinian side. With their strong defense, the Brazil outlooks will likely maintain their clean sheet run in the group on Wednesday.

Racing Club vs Sao Paulo Prediction
Racing Club enjoys the ground advantage in the middle but their mixed form and failing defense in the middle will prove to be their enemies in the fixture. The host dropped points in the campaign earlier and will face a team that hasn’t conceded a goal yet despite scoring five goals in the two attempts.
We can expect the Sao Paulo attacks to be sharp and with their average at 2.5 goals per game, the tip for over 1.5 goals in full-time will come in handy for the goals area in the clash. Furthermore, the match is favoring the away team in the clash with their winning streak so far. Hence, the double chance favoring Sao Paulo will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
