Sao Paulo to Win to Nil

So, we all expect Sao Paulo to win this game, and that’s a reasonable prediction. The question is how will they win it? Our feeling is that they can win without conceding a goal, which happened in their last four games – three in Campeonato Paulista and one in the first round of the Copa Libertadores. We can see this trend continuing against Rentistas.

Sao Paulo to Win Both Halves

Another interesting option that involves Sao Paulo winning is for them to win both halves. This is a betting market with great odds and one worth exploring. After all, Rentistas are in poor form after finishing last in the Uruguayan Clausura, in which they’ve lost 9 of the 15 matches they’ve played.

Under 3.5 Total Goals

While we do expect Sao Paulo to win convincingly, betting on under 3.5 goals seems like a tempting option. Our prediction is based on the fact that we’ve only seen more than three goals once in the last five Sao Paulo games. Furthermore, this happened only once in the last five Rentistas matches as well.

Sao Paulo vs Rentistas preview: A match between David and Goliath

With Sao Paulo being three-time Copa Libertadores champions, while Rentistas never even winning the Uruguayan football league, it’s clear who has the advantage in this match. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams.

Sao Paulo

The Brazilian league is yet to start, so Sao Paolo might not be in a full competitive mode yet – although they are playing in Campeonato Paulista to get in form. Also, the team that finished fourth last season in Brazil started this season in the Copa Libertadores with a convincing 3-0 win in an away game against Sporting Cristal. Considering the poor form in which the Rentistas ended the recently-finished Uruguayan league, it’s clear why Sao Paulo is the absolute favourite in this match.

Rentistas

After finishing the Uruguayan Apertura tied for first place, with the same number of points and goal difference as the future champions Club Nacional, an additional match was played to determine the winner. Rentistas managed to win that game after extra time, but that was the highlight of their season. Poor performance in Clausura, in which they finished last, put them only in 9th place overall. The team started this edition of Copa Libertadores with a 1-1 draw with Racing Club.
