Sao Paulo vs Aguia de Maraba Predictions


Sao Paulo should have little problem in seeing off lower-league Aguia de Maraba on Friday.

I expect the hosts to win, and to keep a clean sheet in the process. 

  • Sao Paulo kept a clean sheet in 7 of their last 9 home victories
  • Sao Paulo kept a clean sheet in 3 of their last 5 home matches
  • Aguia de Maraba failed to score in 4 of their last 5 away defeats

Head to Head


Sao Paulo and Aguia de Maraba will meet for only the second time on Friday. Sao Paulo eased to a 3-1 away victory in their first-leg contest earlier this month. 

Sao Paulo Form


Sao Paulo saw their four-game winning run halted with a goalless draw against Barcelona in the Copa Libertadores last week. The Tricolor Paulista had already secured their safe passage into the next phase before their stalemate against the Ecuadorians. 

Unbeaten since mid-April, Luis Zubeldía's in-form side picked up six wins and two draws from their eight most recent fixtures. 

The Serie A heavyweights have an excellent home record in the Copa do Brazil. Sao Paulo are unbeaten in 14 of their last 16 cup contests played at the MorumBIS since 2020. 

Sao Paulo Team News


Sao Paulo head coach Zubeldía is likely to make some alterations to his selection on Friday. Experienced pair Lucas Moura and Luiz Gustavo could return to the side after appearing as substitutes in the 0-0 draw against Barcelona.

Douglas Costa, Renato Augusto, Thiago Santos and Samuel Xavier are among several players still unavailable for selection. 

Aguia de Maraba Form


Serie D side Aguia de Maraba make the trip to Sao Paulo winless in eight matches after a 4-0 defeat at Maranhão on Saturday. Glauber Ramos's men have now lost five of their seven most recent fixtures while failing to score in three of those defeats.

Away from home, the fourth-tier side have slipped to losses in four of their five most recent road fixtures. 

Competing in the Copa do Brazil for only the second time since 2013, Aguia de Maraba have not won an away tie in this event since 2009. 

Aguia de Maraba Team News


Aguia de Maraba boss Mathaus Sodré is expected to make some changes to his side after another ineffective performance on Saturday. Alan Maia, Mariano and Hitalo are all in contention for a recall to the first XI. 

Verdict

Sao Paulo have been in good form in recent weeks, and I expect them to take care of business on Friday. 

A home win with a clean sheet seems a likely outcome at MorumBIS.
