In the 13rd round in Brazilian Serie A Sao Paulo will host Criciuma.
After 5 matches in all competitions without loss Sao Paulo lost the last two matches in Serie A, against Chapecoense-SC at home 0-1 and Goias 2-1 away, but they improve their performance and beat Bragantino away 1-2 in the first leg of Copa do Brasil.
With today’s win they can move up on the table and join the top five teams. Sao Paulo will miss few important players.
Antônio Carlos (11/2 d), Osvaldo (12/0 f), Kaká (1/1 f) and top scorer Luis Fabiano (9/4 f) are all out.
Criciúma is solid team and currently they are standing at the 14th position. Their home performance is very solid, but away from home they are terrible.
Criciúma is the worst away team. This season they failed to score on all away matches. They didn’t score in their last 7 away matches in all competitions.
They also have some problems with absences.
Escudero (8/0 d), Cortez (12/0 d), Heitor (0/0 d), Rafael Donato (0/0 d), Serginho (11/2 m), João Vitor (11/0 m), Paulo Baier (9/3 m), Ricardinho (5/0 m) and Michael (2/0 f) are all out.
Sao Paulo is not in the great form, but I believe they will not have many problems to take all three points tonight.
