Juventude can be relegated this Sunday in case of defeat to São Paulo and victories of Ceará and Coritiba. The team from Rio Grande do Sul hasn’t won in 13 games (five draws and eight defeats) and is the only one that hasn’t won in the return. In addition, Alviverde has only two wins at home and has the worst campaign as home team in the Brasileirão.
São Paulo arrives at the game packed with the victory over Coritiba, last Thursday, which put them closer to the G-8, the group of eight teams that should have vacancies in next year’s Libertadores. In a season of frustrations, this is now the last tricolor goal of the year.
