Having lost their last game domestically, both Sao Paulo and Ceara would be looking to amend their fortunes in this Sudamericana clash on Wednesday night. It's very unusual to see sides from the same nation clash at such an early stage of the competition as it removes the home-away dynamics of the tie, leaving it open to interpretation as a domestic fixture itself. Nevertheless, it will be a very lucrative setting to watch as the historically better home side has been in a rough patch this season, while the low-profile visitors come into this game with 3 wins from their last five (albeit the last two games ended in a defeat).

Sao Paulo vs Ceara Betting Tips

6 of the last 10 games between the two sides have ended in a draw. Considering the poor form of either side, it will not be very shocking if either side plays it safe again and try to share points at full time. Despite this clash always ending with no result as such, it has not been shy of goals either. Both sides have scored in the last 6 games, taking the goal count to over 2.5 in each of the last 8 meetings. There has been a flare of emotions on the pitch too, with each of the last 5 clashes observing over 4.5 cards shown to each side. We would recommend going for an ACCA of Under 2.5 goals and BTTS as a great betting option for this game. As far as a Mighty tip is concerned, we would risk it with a 1-1 draw.

  • Best Tip: Draw
  • Prediction: 1-1

Sao Paulo Team News

Though the historic Brasilian side manages to keep their attack and defence centrally focused, reducing the chances of a straight counter from the opposition, it is clearly lacking the much-needed strength in the wider areas. Left-back Moreira has clearly struggled in the last few games to keep the counterparts at bay, while his teammates on the same flank - Nikao and Giuliano Galoppo have not tracked back to help him a bit. This game will totally be dependent on how Moreira and the duo of Galoppo-Nikao play defensively, as Ceara will surely target this very wing.

Ceara Team News

Despite losing midfielder Richardson early in the game against Palmeiras, Ceara put up a massive show at the Estadio Castelao to win the second half but lose the game at a 2-1 scoreline. As obvious as it is, Richardson will miss this crucial trip to Sao Paulo and will be replaced by Jhon Vasquez in the double pivot, centrally. When it comes to creativity and goal-scoring, the entire Ceara camp will be dependent on right-winger and number 10, Stiven Mendonza who the side looks up to as one of the stalwarts. Vasquez and Mendonza will be our two players to watch.
