Sao Paulo vs Internacional by ScandinavianSR

The 2nd round of the Brazilian Série A league commenced yesterday, and on this very day a match between São Paulo FC and SC Internacional is taking place at Morumbi in São Paulo.


São Paulo FC welcome SC Internacional, a team that have never been relegated to the second division. They were South American champions in 2006 and 2010 by winning Copa Libertadores titles each year. They also won the Club World Cup in 2006 by defeating both FC Barcelona and São Paulo. They finished as 5th last year in Séria A with only 39 goals in 38 matches. It wasn't the season they were hoping for, but 60 points is what they obtained during their 38 fixtures. The Corinthians won the season with 81 crushing points by scoring 71 goals and only conceding 31.


The Red visit São Paulo, a team that have never been relegated to the second division aswell. It is the most successful team in South America with nothing more than 12 international titles, 21 state titles, six Brasileirão titles, three Copa Libertadores titles, one Supercopa Libertadores, one Copa Sudamerican, two Recopa Sudamericanasa, one Copa CONMEBOL, one Copa Masters CONMEBOL, two Intercontinental Cups and one FIFA Club World Cup title. They finished as 4th last year in Séria A with 53 goals in 38 matches, which was enough to be qualified to the Copa Libertadores once again.


Last time São Paulo welcomed Internacional was in September last year. They were, as expected, dominating and ended up crushing them 2-0. The hometeam have won 15 out of their last 20 home fixtures and drawed one out, and as strong as the team is now, they're ready to go for the first place of Série A in this season. Their first match, which was also the previous, was an away game being played against Botafogo RJ, which they won 1-0. Internacional, however, resulted in a goalless draw at home against plucky Chapecoense-SC even though the away team received a red card.


The hometeam's form has made them favourites in today's fixture, and they definitely have the potential to put Internacional to the sword.


At the end of the day, an aim for Under 2.5 goals at 1.61 has no value, but it is truly pleasing and appealing to my senses to back Under 1.5 goals at 2.85. Still and all, I'm going to back São Paulo to win at 2.05.

You forgot to mention that Sao Paulo is focusing on Copa Libertadores and resting players on the Brazilian League. Five of their main players were not listed for this match and are not listed for the next games either. That includes top scorer Calleri, midfielders Michel Bastos and Hudson, winger Kelvin and Mena left back at Copa America with Chile.
