Sao Paulo vs San Lorenzo Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in the South American Copa Sudamericana on Thursday, 10 August 2023.
Neither Sao Paulo nor San Lorenzo have a decent form of late. Sao Paulo is on a five-match winless run and lost four of those. Meanwhile, San Lorenzo lost two of their last four matches.
Going on, Sao Paulo conceded a defeat in the first leg of this match-up at Estadio Pedro Bidegain. San Lorenzo hosted the match and sealed a 1-0 win over Sao Paulo.
They have met just thrice in the past. San Lorenzo won two and lost one of those three matches.
All their three clashes had goals under 2.5 ft. Their only meeting at this stadium ended in a 1-0 win for Sao Paulo.
Sao Paulo is having a good form at home despite of their overall winless form. They were unbeaten in six of the last seven matches at home. Do also note that they won five of those six matches.
Meanwhile, San Lorenzo have an unimpressive form on the road of late. The team recorded eight winless outcomes in the last 10 road trips across all competitions.
Considering such a form, we don’t expect a win for San Lorenzo despite of their slight edge in their head to head meeting with Sao Paulo. A win for Sao Paulo will be our main pick here.
Five of the last six home matches of Sao Paulo and the last six away matches of San Lorenzo had goals under 2.5 ft. Moreover, all of their h2h clashes had goals under 2.5 ft. Therefore, we don’t expect this match to have goals over 2.5 ft.
Sao Paulo have bagged a clean sheet display in four of their last six home matches. Knowing that San Lorenzo have failed to score in three of the last six road trips, we have enough reasons to expect a one-sided match here.
Sao Paulo is likely to seal a win on Thursday considering all these observations. An unimpressive San Lorenzo will add more to the chances for Sao Paulo here.
We therefore like to place Sao Paulo to win bet at 1.57 odds as the main tip. For the second tip, we like to place the under 2.5 goals bet at 1.88 odds.
