Rosario Central vs Sao Paulo
South America – Copa Sudamericana
Date: Friday, 13 April 2018
Kick-Off at 01:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Dr. Lisandro de la Torre (Santa Fe).
Copa Sudamericana is about to offer another Argentina vs Brazil clash in the tie between Rosario Central and Sao Paulo. The first leg is set to be played on Thursday evening as Canalla are looking to maintain the fine spell of form in front of the home crowd to gain an edge ahead of the reverse fixture in Brazil.
Rosario Central are midway through the season in Superliga where they hold the 13th place after 22 rounds. Leonardo Fernandez’s troops mainly tend to collect points on the home patch where the team won seven of last eight games across competitions. The hosts arrive off the back of netting five in last two home wins against Chacarita Juniors and Belgrano. The good news for the head coach Fernandez is the form of his top scorer Frenando Zampedri. The Argentine striker found the back of the net in the weekend’s 2-1 win over Belgrano to notch his seventh goal of the campaign.
The season in Brazilian Serie A is yet to kick off next weekend, but Sao Paulo have already felt disappointments on multiple occasions over the last couple of weeks. They first fell to Corinthians in the Campeonato Paulista semis before seeing an early exit in Copa do Brasil, falling 2-1 away at Atletico PR.
