Sao Paulo vs Sport Recife Prediction and Betting Tips | June 1st 2023 


Sao Paulo will host Sport Recife at the Estadio Morumbi on Thursday in the second leg of their Copa do Brasil last 16 tie.

The home side are enjoying a good run of form at the moment and will be looking to carry that momentum onto the domestic cup this week. They already have a foot in the quarterfinals of the Copa do Brasil after picking up a 2-0 win in the first leg, with Luciano coming off the bench to score the opener before Atletico Madrid loanee Marco Paulo doubled the Soberano’s advantage.

Sao Paulo have never won the domestic competition and will hope to do so this year.

Sport have had mixed results of late but will be looking to overturn their first-leg result this week. They had started the reverse fixture well enough and headed into the break with the scoreline goalless before Fabinho’s second-half dismissal saw their opponents cruise to an easy victory.
