Sport Recife vs Sao Paulo
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 14th June 2017
Kick-off at 23:30 UK/ 0:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Adelmar da Costa Carvalho.
Both Sport Recife and Sao Paulo seem to be completely different teams when they play on the road.
They are very tough to both break down and beat on the home patch, but as soon as they leave their home they suddenly became super vulnerable.
The Lions continued their trend on Sunday when they suffered an away loss to Vasco da Gama (2-1). It was the fourth loss on the trot for them away from Estadio Adelmar da Costa Carvalho.
The story is completely different on the home pitch where they are yet to suffer a defeat in spite of facing the likes of Cruzeiro, Greemio, Botafogo and Flamengo.
The Tricolours did not have great expectations from the local derby with Corinthians on Sunday, but the team led by Rogerio Ceni came out with quite a decent display losing only narrowly 3-2 at Arena Corinthians.
Sao Paulo have been impeccable on the home pitch winning each of their three home fixtures to nil, but they are at the same time yet to claim their first points on the road.
Sport Recife vs Sao Paulo: Head to head
Sao Paulo claimed ten wins in 18 meetings with Sport Recife. However, the Lions have been much more successful on the home ground where they took each of their five wins.
Both of the last two clashes between the two teams ended without a winner.
Sport Recife vs Sao Paulo: Prediction
Even though the visitors showed strong displays in the last two games, we simply have no other option but to back Sport Recife to maintain their fine home form.
Sport’s top scorer Andre took his league tally to four goals at the weekend when he found the net in a 2-1 loss to Vasco da Gama. Andre is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick.
