Internacional - Sao Paulo
Internacional are closer to the victory here. They play at home and this fact should not be underestimated. Internacional are in good form after winning in the last league and cup match. They beat Botafogo with 3:2 in Serie A thanks to the goals scored by Lindoso, Edenilson and Nicolas Lopez. Internacional also won 3:0 against Cruzeiro during the midweek. Paolo Guerrero scored a brace and will be full of confidence here. The third goal was scored by Edenilson. Coach Odair has no new injury or suspension worries, but Matheus Galdezani, Natanael and Rodrigo Dourado remain sidelined.
Sao Paulo have no win on the last two matches. They lost 2:0 to Vasco away and played a goalless draw with Gremio at home. As You could see, Sao Paulo failed to score a single goal on the last two matches. It is clear they have attacking issues. But there is more. Joao Rojas, Hernanes and Alexandre Pato are out injured, while Jonas Toro is rated as doubtful. That s not all, Dani Alves, Antony, Walce and Igor Gomes are on international duty. It is clear that Sao Paulo are handicapped and I expect Internacional to win here.
