Vitoria vs Corinthians: Prediction

Corinthians are badly in need of a win. Possibly they have to wait till their next game because they look weak on paper against the hosts.

This was not foreseen by any of the fans which saw their team become champions for the 7th time last season. The team which has a FIFA Club WC in their cabinet has been way below their standards.

All they can do now is to try getting into the top-10 half of the table.
