Corinthians vs Juventude Tip and Prediction
Corinthians have established themselves as the team to beat in Brazil’s Serie A, going undefeated in eight of their first ten games.
With a two-point lead over Athletico Paranaense in second place, Corinthians’ 18 points from a possible 30 are enough to put them in first position.
Corinthians, far from being unstoppable, suffered their second defeat of the season last time out, losing to a Cuiaba club struggling for points at the foot of the table.
The return to familiar circumstances at home will be welcomed by Corinthians, who are unbeaten at the Neo Qumica Arena but have lost their last two appearances there.
Juventude, on the other hand, has not had the same kind of start, and after ten rounds of matches, the Rio Grande do Sul side finds itself in the relegation zone.
Juventude has been plagued by inconsistency thus far, with two victories, four ties, and four loses in their first ten games.
To be sure, road trips have provided a nice reprieve from Juventude’s otherwise disappointing performances this season, with the team going undefeated in their previous three away games.
That streak featured a much-needed triumph against Avai three weeks ago, which remains their sole road win this season. Juventude, who are expected to be swept aside this weekend, will be hoping for a repeat of the 1-0 victory O Azul had over Corinthians the last time the two met in December.
Juventude had not beaten Corinthians since August 2005, and the league leaders were no doubt desperate to avoid a second straight loss to Saturday’s opponents.
Corinthians have enjoyed the best start of any Serie A team in Brazil this season, despite certain shortcomings.
Expect Corinthians to bounce back from a recent setback with an easy home win over Juventude this Saturday.
