It is likely that the top eight of the Brazilian will secure a spot in next year’s Libertadores.
Originally, six spots are distributed in the tournament. But as Corinthians, Flamengo and Athletico-PR, all in the G-6, are in the finals of the Copa do Brasil and Libertadores, two new spots should be opened in the Brasileiro.
Therefore, São Paulo aims at at least eighth place, as the team failed in the Copa do Brasil and the South American Cup.
In addition to the postponed game against Coritiba, which will be played on the 20th, São Paulo will still face teams that are direct rivals in this dispute.
