Corinthians x São Paulo

Already qualified for the quarterfinals, Corinthians and São Paulo make the classic of the tenth round of the Paulista Championship this Sunday, at 10:15 pm (Brasília time), at the Neo Química Arena. The game tracks the match in real-time.

Corinthians beat Santos in the last game for the State, but even so, come under pressure. Last Thursday, he lost to Peñarol-URU, at home, by 2 to 0 and was in a difficult situation to advance from the stage in the Copa Sudamericana.

Dissatisfied with the poor performance of the team, despite the guaranteed place in the quarterfinals of Paulistão, fans went to Protest at the door of the CT on the eve of the classic.

São Paulo, on the other hand, is experiencing a moment of excitement. The team won the last eight games, can finish the first phase of Paulista with the best campaign since 2017, and is the group leader in Libertadores with two wins in two games.

With 25 points, Hernán Crespo's team has the chance to beat the 2019 Red Bull Brasil, which has scored 27 points in 12 matches. This Sunday, he tries to beats Corinthians in Itaquera for the first time.

Broadcast: Premiere (with narration by Odinei Ribeiro and comments by Alexandre Lozetti and Roque Jr.).

Corinthians - Coach: Vagner Mancini

Timão will have changes to the classic. Starting in front of Peñarol, striker Léo Natel was not even listed for this Sunday's duel.

Another who started the game on Thursday and is out of Majestoso is the midfielder, Victor Cantillo. He was tried for expulsion from Ponte Preta (on March 7) and picked up yet another hook match.

The tendency is for Mancini to return to using "team B" athletes, such as Raul Gustavo and Lucas Piton.

The main novelty in the list of related Corinthians is midfielder Mateus Vital, who has not been active for a month and a half. Recovered from an arthroscopy on his right knee, he should start the game on the bench.

Possible lineup: Cássio, Fagner (João Victor), Raul Gustavo, Gil (Jemerson) and Lucas Piton; Gabriel, Camacho, Gustavo Mosquito, Luan and Otero (Ramiro); Cauê (Jo).

Who's out: Cantillo (suspended), Xavier (sprained left ankle), Gustavo Mantuan, Danilo Avelar, Ruan Oliveira, and Igor Formiga (all recovering from knee problems), as well as unrelated athletes by choice, like Léo Natel, Araos, and Rodrigo Varanda.

São Paulo - Coach: Hernán Crespo

São Paulo has already secured the place in the quarterfinals and the leadership of Group B and now waits to know if they will face Ponte Preta or Ferroviária in the first knockout. In Itaquera, he tries to break the taboo of never having won. There are ten defeats and three draws at the rival's home.

Crespo should keep the majority of the titleholders who won in the Libertadores in the middle of the week. The coach may have the reinforcements of Gabriel Sara and Eder, who have recovered from injuries.

Probable lineup: Tiago Volpi, Arboleda, Bruno Alves and Léo (Miranda); Daniel Alves, Luan, Rodrigo Nestor, Benítez (Igor Gomes) and Reinaldo; Luciano and Pablo.
