Corinthians – Bragantino FREE PICKS

On Thursday, Corinthians hosts Bragantino at the Corinthians Arena for a return game of the quarterfinals of the São Paulo championship. In the first confrontation between the two teams the Bragança Paulista team surprised and beat the 3×2 score, which is good, but it is clear that the “Timão” will fight with great enthusiasm from the initial minutes, to try to reverse the situation.


The fact that Corinthians has reached the quarterfinals does not surprise anyone, since there is no possible comparison between one of the biggest teams in the country and the clubs of the interior of São Paulo, making it one of the favorites to conquer of the title. On the other hand, he ended up having a weak performance and lost by the 3×2 score in the first leg. So you need to necessarily win by two or more goals, to qualify for the semifinal.

It is evident that his current opponent must try to defend himself enough, since he wants to surprise, but if Corinthians shows all his strength he should not have problems to win the game. The recipe is simple and to win depends only on himself, so if he manages to have possession of the ball and if he is quite objective, he must obtain the necessary score at the end of the match. For this match, coach Fábio Carille will not be able to count on René Júnior, who is in the medical department, while Marquinhos Gabriel and Jadson are in doubt. Fagner, Balbuena and Romero were summoned by their selections and will also not be available.


Of course, the campaign of Bragantino in the group stage was very good and it is not by chance that it happened phase, but it knows that now it will have much more difficulties if it wants to stay alive in the competition. It is true that he has an advantage in the quarterfinals, but nothing is decided, so he will need once again to have a performance of extreme quality, to obtain a result that is sufficient not to be eliminated.

The Bragança Paulista team knows that losing is the most obvious result, but does not want to give up, so it will try in every way to surprise. Should give extra attention to their defense, but without forgetting the attack, being that the main weapons to score their goals and try to pass phase are counterattacks and set pieces. For this game, coach Marcelo Veiga will not be able to count on Helton Luiz and Anderson Ligero, who are in the medical department.
