These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your betslip before confirming.

Sao Paulo to Win

The main reason why our prediction is for Sao Paulo to win is the home-court advantage since both teams have a lot of quality and they have been great in continental competitions so far. In addition to this, Sao Paulo has a better head-to-head record recently since they’ve won three of the last five duels between these two teams.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Duels between Sao Paulo and Fluminense are always exciting and we often see plenty of goals when these two teams meet. For example, three of their last five h2h matches have gone over 2.5 total goals, while the other two were also close with two goals in each game. Furthermore, Fluminense has gone over 2.5 total goals in four of their last five matches in all competitions. Sao Paulo has done this in just two games, but we still expect to see at least three goals in this game.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

As we already said, both teams have a lot of great players in their squad. So, since we expect to see plenty of goals in this game, we also expect to see both teams scoring. After all, both teams have scored in four of their last five meetings. Plus, both teams have scored in all five latest Fluminense games in all competitions, so this sounds like a reasonable bet.

Sao Paulo vs Fluminense preview: A big match in the first round

This is a duel between two Top 5 teams from last season, so it should be interesting to see how they match up in the new season. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the teams.

Sao Paulo

One of the most successful Brazilian teams finished fourth in the last edition of Serie A, two points ahead of their first opponent in the new season. Sao Paula will start the new season in a positive mood since they’ve secured a place in the next stage of the Copa Libertadores after finishing second in their group. The team also won Campeonato Paulista A1 after beating Palmeiras 2-0 on aggregate in the final of this competition. Dani Alves and Walce are injured and unlikely to play in the first round.

Fluminense

After finishing fifth last season, Fluminense will be hoping to take a step further this year in Serie A. And, like their first-round opponents, they enter the season in a fantastic mood after reaching the next stage of the Copa Libertadores and after winning Campeonato Carioca by beating Flamengo 4-2 on aggregate in the final. In addition to this, Fluminense has a clean bill of health ahead of the first game of the season.
