Preview: Corinthians vs. Bragantino - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Wednesday's Brasileiro clash between Corinthians and Bragantino, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Corinthians welcome Bragantino to the Corinthians Arena this week for their midweek Brasileiro clash.

Both of these sides have made promising starts to the new campaign, but Bragantino are the side in the ascendency, with the team yet to lose this season.

Currently tenth in the standings, Corinthians have blown hot and cold this season, with the team following up their opening day defeat with a draw and a win.

Timao have four points to their name as it stands and will be desperate to begin moving up the division as soon as possible.

Against Palmeiras last time out, Corinthians managed to hold the 2020 Copa Libertadores champions to a 1-1 draw, with Gabriel Girotto Franco equalising in the 55th minute of the game.

Head coach Sylvinho will hope his side can use that draw as a springboard in which they can start putting a good run of form together.

Bragantino coach Mauricio Barbieri will look to extend his side's unbeaten streak when his side graces the Corinthians Arena.

Currently sixth in the standings, Bragantino have made a really solid start to the campaign, picking up five points and scoring eight goals along the way.

Massa Bruta come into this game on the back of two consecutive stalemates, with Barbieri's men following up a dramatic 3-3 draw against Bahia with a 2-2 draw against Fluminense.

Barbieri will certainly hope his side can begin turning those strong performances into convincing wins.

We say: Corinthians 1-3 Bragantino

As much as this Bragantino side have looked particularly poor at the back, they have also proven that they are a capable attacking side that can bang in goals all day long. We think Massa Bruta can inflict some real damage on Corinthians this week.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
