Sao Paulo vs Rosario Central: Preview and Predictions

Sao Paulo vs Rosario Central
Copa Sudamericana
Date: Thursday, 10 May 2018
Kick-Off at 01:45 UK / 02:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo, Sao Paulo.

Sao Paulo ended last term’s campaign in the opening round on the away goal rule (1-1 on aggregate against Argentine Defensa y Justicia. They could face the same destiny one year later against another team form Argentina, having played a goalless draw in the first leg of the first round’s tie with Rosario Central a month ago.

Tricolor thus need a victory in the reverse fixture in front of the home crowd, and they will be clear favourites to get one following Rosario’s horrendous spell of form in the most recent domestic matches. Canalla lost four on the bounce in Superliga netting just once in the process, a streak which saw them slide down to the 19th place in the league standings.

Furthermore, the visitors from Argentina proved out to be super vulnerable at the back lately conceding as many as seven goals in losses o Defensa y Justicia and Arsenal Sarandi.

Sao Paulo vs Rosario Central: Head-to-head

The two sides locked horns once in the past, and it happened in the last 16 round of Copa Libertadores, back in 2004.

Sao Paulo advanced on penalties back then after both teams snatched narrow wins in front of the home crowd.

As mentioned above, the first leg of this Copa Sudamericana tie ended in a goalless draw.

Sao Paulo vs Rosario Central: Prediction

The team led by the Uruguayan manager Diego Aguirre will enter the match as massive form favourites following the fact they are unbeaten in last six games in all competitions. Truth be told, none of last four saw them snatch the victory either, but their attacking line should really be in position to take advantage of the obvious holes in Rosario’s defense at Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo.

Sao Paulo drew 2.2 to Atletico Mineiro at the weekend and backing them to net two or more goals here has value ta the 1.85 odds. Punters who like safer options can try with the clear home win at 1.53.
