Corinthians vs Santos Match Analysis and Prediction

Corinthains and Santos will renew their Classico Alvinegro rivalry on Wednesday as both teams face off at Corinthians Arena in the first leg of their Round of 16 Copa do Brasil tie.

After a shock 2-0 defeat on aggragate in the third round a season ago to Atletico Goianiense, Corinthians are back in the last 16 of the comeptition, but their journey was by no means an easy one.

Vitor Pereira’s side conceded an opening goal to Cafu after a minute of play as Serie D side Portuguaesa RJ drew them 1-1 in their home fixture.

Luckily for Corinthians, the second leg was much lighter, as they scored two first-half goals to come away with a 2-0 victory to progress to this stage.

Timao have played impressively at home this year, without a defeat in 15 successive matches across all competitions, collecting 10 clean sheets over that period.

Corinthians have conceded the second-fewest goals in Serie A courtesy of aggressive defending, which has effectively closed off a lot of space in their penalty area, forcing other teams to make poor decisions.

Fabian Bustos has been forced to create some innovative formulas to keep his Santos side competitive, and he managed to that this weekend as they drew Bragantino 2-2, claiming a point in five consecutive matches.

While Santos conceded seven shots on target and let two leads slip away, they have been well-organised in a lot of games recently, allowing multiple goals in just two of their previous 13 matches across all competitions.

Corinthians’ current run might be intimidating for a lot of teams to think about heading into such a huge contest, but Santos were also the last side to defeat them on their home turf, coming from a goal down to win 2-1 at the Campeonato Paulista in February.
