Campeonato Paulista: round 11 preview

February 22, 2008 at 17:37 Leave a comment

On Saturday, our coverage of round eleven of the Campeonato Paulista takes us to the estádio Ulrico Mursa for São Caetano against Barueri. 

São Caetano are still without a permanent coach after Amauri Knevitz was given the boot ten days ago. However, caretaker Ivan Baitello, may get the nod if he can it make it three wins in a row vs Barueri.

Baitello’s men start in tenth but could climb as high as fifth if results go their way.

Barueri are one of a handful of small clubs that are giving the big boys a run for their money this season.

Márcio Araújo’s side are unbeaten in six and three points would lift them into the playoff places.

Kick off: 18:10 (Brasilia) GMT – 3 hours

My prediction: score draw


Sunday sees us in the city of Campinas and the estádio Moisés Lucarelli for what should be a tasty encounter between leaders Ponte Preta and sixth-placed Corinthians.

After losing to Barueri midweek, Sérgio Guedes’ team need to bounce back quickly.

Ponte, though, have an excellent home record winning all but one of their games in Campinas.

They are also the league’s top scorers but Ponte’s frontline will have their work cut out against the meanest defence in the Paulista.

Corínthians have only conceded six in ten outings.

However, Mano Meneze’s side are overly defensive and have only scored eleven. As a result, Corinthians have already drawn five matches, which includes three 0x0s.

Kick off: 16:00 

My prediction: Ponte to win if they score first
