​Copa Libertadores -- Corinthians Paulista (SP) vs Always Ready Game Preview

Pick:

AH Corinthians Paulista (SP) ()  @
OU Over ()  @

Analysis:

Corinthians visit Always Ready in their last group match at the Neo Quimica Arena on Thursday, looking to advance to the Copa Libertadores knockout stages.

Corinthians Paulista (SP)
Corinthians made a 1-1 draw with Sao Paulo, maintaining their Serie A lead. This continued their excellent form in the Copa Libertadores, where they have gone four games without losing, with 2W-2D since beginning their season with a 2-0 loss to Thursday's visitors in April. Corinthians is presently second in Group E with eight points from five games.




Always Ready
Always Ready will now focus on the Copa Sudamericana, where they have achieved 1W-1D-3L from their five games thus far, earning four points and sitting at the bottom of the group. Since a 1-0 triumph against Real Santa Cruz in March, Eduardo Villegas' team has failed to win any of their past seven away games in all competitions, losing six and drawing one.

Prediction
Corinthians goes into the game knowing that failure to earn all three points might mean the end of their chances of reaching the knockout rounds. I believe Corinthians will do just enough to earn all three points and go to the next stage of the continental showdown.
