Sao Paulo vs Corinthians
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Estádio do Morumbi.
The Faith Team have been pretty consistent in the last several years, and they also have been usual suspects to finish in the top-most tier of the table.
Last year, they had finished in top-six of the standings, and thus qualified for the Libertadores. Meanwhile, Coringao have not had the best of starts to their campaign in 2020, and are struggling at the moment to even perform well against some of the weak teams of this league.
In fact, they would have been 100% winless in this edition of the Serie a, if not for their victory against the dead-last placed Cortiba.
On top of that, they are also on a slump in away fixtures, while their counterparts have been tearing it up at home, and have had a good h2h record at this stadium as well.
Sao Paulo vs Corinthians: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash saw the teams sharing spoils, as the game ended in a goalless draw.
- Fernando Diniz’s men kept clean sheets in three of the preceding five match-ups.
- They are unbeaten at this venue since 2017.
- They had also registered five of the former six wins at this ground.
Sao Paulo vs Corinthians: Prediction
Tiago Nunes’s men were winless in five of their last six overall games, and importantly were winless in 21 of their preceding 25 fixtures on the road. Moreover, their only win this season in this league had come against a newly-promoted Cortiba, who also happen to be the worst in the competition.
On the other hand, Diniz’s men are unbeaten this whole campaign, if not for their loss against the second-placed Vasco. They are also placed third in the table at the moment, and have lost just twice at home in the past nine months.
On top of that, they also do have a terrific h2h record at this stadium over the years against this rival.
Considering all these factors, expect Sao Paulo to dominate proceedings from the get-go this Sunday.
