Rosario Central vs São Paulo – Copa Sudamericana: Rosario Central is
still dreaming. The team is only in 14th place of the Argentinian Superliga.
But they are only 1 point behind the qualification zone for the next Copa Sudamericana.
After such a complicated semester, managing to be on the international stage for another season would be a great prize.
Lately, Rosario Central has been looking more capable. The team managed to get points in 4 of their last 5 matches, but tactically they haven’t shown anything that exciting.
However, playing at home, they play with a lot of heart and since they have an attack that is always able to make a dent, they become stronger. Believing on their recent improvements, playing on the attack, Rosario Central will look to open up an advantage here.
The manager Leonardo Fernández has his team in full strength for this duel.
When they were eliminated from the Campeonato Paulista by Corinthians after penalties, a lot of people thought that São Paulo was leaving that competition with their heads held up high. I still had my doubts.
And then I got even more suspicious after their very poor showing on the Copa do Brasil against Atlético Paranaense. The loss by only a 1-goal margin ended up being a lucky result for them.
In another knockout tie, São Paulo knows they have to present a lot more. They need to show more on both ends, looking to have more offensive presence but without being so vulnerable on defence.
Against them, the biggest problem is that the very slight improvements they present at home are gone when they play as visitors. São Paulo will have to present much more not to let their fans down once again.
The manager Diego Aguirre will have the same starting line-up he has been using at his disposal.
Rosario Central vs São Paulo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This is a very tough match, there are no doubts about that. However, I see some aspects favourable to the home side.
They have been reacting on the past few rounds and with a lot of will in front of their fans, they have been managing to impose themselves.
São Paulo, on most of the occasions where they were really tested, was disappointing, at least in my opinion. Banking on the strength of the Argentinian team at home, and their dedication and attacking power, I see them being favourites for this match.
