Stadium: Arena Corinthians (Sao Paulo).
Corinthians will face Juventude in the 19th round of the Brazilian football championship. Corinthians have finally found stability and are listed as the clear favourite for the upcoming game. But Juventude, despite their status as newcomers to Brazil’s elite, are by no means whipping boys. We’ll see how this clash plays out.
After their 1-3 defeat by Flamengo, Corinthians played four games in Serie A, drawing 0-0 away to Santos, beating Ceará, Athletico Paranaense, and Gremio. Thanks to that spurt, Corinthians moved up to sixth place in the league standings, that is, into the Copa Libertadores zone. Flamenco are five points ahead, while Atletico Go from the seventh position are two points behind. Corinthians’ home stats are 18th in the division, +2=2-4, 9:11 goal difference.
Corinthians have a 4-match unbeaten streak and the same for Juventude. The future visitors have won only once in their last four games, away to Bragantino, with three draws against Fortaleza, Sao Paulo and Fluminense. The results are pretty good as a newcomer. Juventude are in 15th position before the 19th round, with 22 points under their belt. In away games, Juventude are 15th in the division, +1=4-3, 6-9 goal difference.
Expert Betting Tips
The club from Sao Paulo needs recognition and fight for high places. The last few seasons were weak. Now the future hosts of the field have an opportunity to consolidate in the top-6. They need to beat a relatively strong Juventude. Overall, Juventude are a valuable side for Corinthians, though the last time the two teams played was in 2008. In any case, we believe in the victory of Timao on the home field, and as for the totals, we do not expect a productive game. We’d like to put our money on this match - W1 for 1.66, Total Under (2.5) for 1.32, W1+Total Under (2.5) for 2.65.
