Sport Recife vs Sao Paulo
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick-off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Ilha do Retiro.
The Faith Team were one of the best in the Serie A the last season, and had qualified for the Libertadores at the end of their campaign. Impressively, they also had the best defense of all the teams in the competition.
Suffice it to say that they are well-versed and experienced in the top flight.
However, their opponents for the day have just been promoted to this league, and are finding it hard to get used to their new surroundings. In fact, if not for their single win against the 19th placed team in the table, they would have had a 100% winless record this season.
On top of that, Fernando Diniz’s men also do have a great h2h record against this rivals, especially so in the past five years.
For the reasons, expect a winning performance from Sao Paulo this Sunday.
Sport Recife vs Sao Paulo: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Faith Team are unbeaten in the last seven encounters between these two squads.

Sport Recife vs Sao Paulo: Prediction
Daniel Paulista’s men are the newest members in the Serie A, and they are not all equipped to take on the titans of the league.
And to pile on, their opponents for the day had the best defense in the whole tournament the last season, and also are representing the league in the Libertadores.
It goes without saying that the Faith Team are one of the best in the Serie A, and to improve their chances even more, they have a terrific h2h record against this foe, especially recently.
As such, expect Sao Paulo to dominate proceedings from the get-go this Sunday.
