Corinthians vs São Paulo Betting Tip and Prediction

Corinthians vs São Paulo – Brazilian Serie A:With the loss against Botafogo on the last round
Corinthians is still at risk of being relegated on this final stretch of the competition.
With 39 points conquered so far, they have 5 more points than the 17th place Vitória and they need 6 or 7 more points to mathematically ensure they avoid relegation and stay amongst the elite.
Another loss could complicate their situation on the league table.
As hosts, they have won 8 of the 16 matches they’ve played, besides also getting 6 draws and only 2 losses, and even on a poor moment of form, they have been a tough opponent to beat at Itaquera.
On the last 5 matches there, they have gotten 2 victories, 2 draws and 1 loss.
Probable starting line-up: Cássio, Fagner, Léo Santos, Henrique and Carlos Augusto; Ralf and Araos; Pedrinho, Jadson and Clayson; Danilo.
Manager: Jair Ventura.
With the draw against Flamengo on the last round and with Grêmio’s victory over Atlético, São Paulo already see their spot in the top 4 at risk.
With a second half of the season well below what was expected, with only 2 victories on the last 10 matches, the team has 57 points, only 2 more than Grêmio, and in case they lose, they can already be overtaken in this round.
As visitors, the team led by Aguirre still holds the 2nd best record in the league, much due to their superb first half of the season.
So far, they have gotten 6 victories, 6 draws and 4 losses. However, on the last 5 matches, they’ve only gotten 1 victory, besides the 2 draws and 2 losses.
Probable starting line-up: Jean, Anderson Martins, Bruno Alves, Arboleta, Bruno Peres, Jucilei, Luziero, Everton, Reinaldo, Diego Souza and Carneiro.
Manager: Diego Aguirre.
Corinthians vs São Paulo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
São Paulo’s city derby between two teams with different objectives within the competition, but that are going through similar moments of form.
On the side of Corinthians, the streak of poor results left them under alert regarding the relegation zone.
On the side of São Paulo, the streak of poor results left the team away from the fight for the title and, with the spot in the top 4, that gives them a direct spot in the Copa Libertadores, at risk.
Therefore, with both teams under pressure, and since this is a derby, that in my opinion is always a special match, I believe there is no favouritism here.
That way, with both teams needing to win, I expect a very exciting match, and with two defensive systems going through a period of instability, conceding goals in practically every match on the last couple of rounds, I see the goals market having a lot of value here.
Another important aspect is the return of the midfielder Jadson, on the side of the hosts, and the midfielder Everton, on the side of the visitors, who are two players that tend to contribute towards the goal scoring of their respective teams.
