Stadium: Morumbi, Sao Paulo.
One of the central matches of the 9th round of the Brazilian football championship will be the encounter between Sao Paulo and Bragantino. A Paulista state derby in which one of the championship leaders is quoted as a minor underdog.
Sao Paulo’s current form
After defeating 4 de Julho Esporte 9-1, Sao Paulo cannot win. Since then, the Tricolor have played six matches in Serie A, with Sao Paulo losing twice in that period, to Atletico Mineiro and Santos, drawing with Chapecoense, Cuiabá, Ceará and Corinthians. The results are below average, so it is no wonder that the Tricolor are only just outside the relegation zone, in seventeenth place, with five points. The gap to Amerika is already four points, while Amerika are just two points above Sao Paulo. Sao Paulo’s home stats aren’t great either. In their three games at Morumbi, Sao Paulo have drawn three times with a goal difference of 3-3.
Bragantino’s current form
On the one hand, Bragantino are in the second position in the Brazilian championship standings and before the draw against Ceará, the Red Bull had a 4-match winning streak. On the other hand, the Bulls against Ceará, not a top team in Serie A, played mediocrely, they possessed the ball but hardly had an advantage in terms of shots, it was more likely an even game in this regard, and therefore the result is logical. Also note that Bragantino have excellent away statistics, +4=0-0, 9:3 goal difference, the best numbers in Serie A. But we do not believe that Bragantino will be able to spend the whole tournament with 100% guest statistics, somewhere the failure will happen. We believe that this could happen in the upcoming game against Sao Paulo.
Expert Betting Tips
Sao Paulo are a potentially powerful team, one of the strongest in the division, but they didn’t start well in Serie A. Although before that Sao Paulo played well in the group of the Cup of Libertadores, won the championship of the state Paulista. There is no doubt that the Tricolor can potentially beat anyone in Serie A, it is only a question of tone and psychology. Sao Paulo are in the relegation zone, while Bragantino, who lost to Sao Paulo in mid-April in the state championship, is the second championship team. Sao Paulo’s motivation is at a super level, we believe the Tricolor will do everything they can to win the upcoming game. Here are the following betting options for the upcoming match: W1 for 2.47, Handicap 1 (0) for 1.72, 1X+Both to score for 2.75.
