Vozão goes to the field after a draw against Botafogo for the Brasileirão Serie A. If in the national championship the team has not won for three matches, the knockout of the international tournament brings the real opportunity of, at home, with the support of the fans, Alvinegro advance to the stage. Even because the only game lost in the South American was the last one, against Tricolor itself.
In a bad campaign in the Brazilian, São Paulo started to prioritize the cups of Brazil and South America. The last one is the one in which the board and coaching staff see more chance of a title and, therefore, gained importance after coach Rogério Ceni selected reserves throughout the group stage. At Castelão, Ceni will have the best players at his disposal.
