Match preview

2021 Brazil Serie A round 9, Sao Paulo  will play against with Bragantino home. Sao Paulo have suffered a particularly underwhelming start to the 2021 season by their own lofty standards, lingering in the drop zone and still looking to record their first league win. Hernan Crespo's side currently sit 17th in the top flight with just five points from their opening eight games; just three points above basement side Gremio, who have played two games fewer. The Tricolor Paulista come into this weekend's clash on a run of three consecutive draws, though, since losing the San-Sao derby to old rivals Santos last month. Following draws with Sao Paulo  and Ceara, the six-time national champions were unable to break the deadlock in a goalless game at Corinthians on Thursday, leaving them with a paltry tally of four league goals so far this term - an indicator of their most obvious deficiency. No stranger to putting the ball in the back of the net during his playing days, Crespo has a modest win rate as a manager since taking his first senior role at Modena six years ago, and will feel he still has much to prove now in charge of one of Brazil's most feted sides.

After enjoying a 1-0 win over Atletico Goianiense last weekend, with a late goal strengthening their grip on the early-season top spot, Bragantino took on mid-table Ceara on Thursday. Though a goalless draw at home to relatively modest opponents may have seemed an underwhelming result - especially having had nearly two-thirds of the ball - it keeps Braga's bandwagon rolling coming into a fortnight when they will face second-placed Athletico Paranaense and then return to Copa Sudamericana action. Before they meet Colombia's America de Cali in the last 16 of the continental competition, Mauricio Barbieri's side find themselves in the rare position - historically speaking - of being favourites to beat Sao Paulo at the iconic Morumbi. Notwithstanding a rare blank in midweek, the 2019 Serie B champions' haul of 17 goals is the best return of any team in the division, with well-travelled striker Ytalo leading the way with four goals - including a memorable hat-trick against Palmeiras - in a team that has shared the goalscoring burden.


Sao Paulo possible starting lineup:
Volpi; Leo, B. Alves, Miranda; Rigoni, D. Alves, Welington, Liziero, Gomes; Eder, Luciano

Bragantino possible starting lineup:
Cleiton; Weverton, Bruno, Natan, Edimar; Evangelista, Raul; Artur, Zirlo, Helinho; Ytalo
