Sunday's Brasileiro predictions including Santos vs. Sao Paulo

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Sunday's Brasileiro fixtures, including Santos vs. Sao Paulo.

Bahia vs. Corinthians (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Bahia will host Corinthians in the Brazilian Serie A on Sunday at the Itaipava Fonte Nova Arena.

Both sides come in to this match with varied form, still looking to build consistent momentum in the early stages of the season.

We say: Bahia 3-1 Corinthians

Both sides have been in indifferent form, though Bahia are coming off a solid victory over Ceara. Gilberto will be a difficult forward for Corinthians to deal with, particularly as they have not had the most organised defence this season.

Sylvinho is still looking to stamp his mark on the side and with their continued adaptation to his style we can see Bahia taking control of this game.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Cuiaba vs. Gremio (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Cuiaba and Gremio square off on Sunday, as both sides go in search of their first win of the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A campaign.

From their opening three games, the hosts have picked up two points, while their visitors have lost all three matches, sitting at the foot of the table as a result.

We say: Cuiaba 1-1 Gremio

With both sides having had underwhelming starts to the season, this could go either way, but we see the teams sharing the points.

If Gremio manage to click, they should not be stranded at the bottom of the table for long, and we see them improving and collecting their first point of the season on Sunday.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Santos vs. Sao Paulo (Sunday, 10.15pm)

Two local rivals aiming to recover from underwhelming starts to their Brasileiro campaigns lock horns at the Estadio Urbano Caldeira on Sunday as Santos do battle with Sao Paulo.

The hosts fell to a 1-0 defeat to high-flying Fluminense in their most recent encounter, whereas Sao Paulo's winless streak continued with a draw versus Chapecoense.

We say: Santos 1-1 Sao Paulo

Neither of these two sides have been renowned for their attacking capabilities this season, and Santos' strong home form coupled with Sao Paulo's away day difficulties should spell a home success this weekend.

However, the hosts have struggled to get over the line against their local rivals in recent times, while suspensions and injuries will continue to bedevil both teams, so we expect a cagey affair to end with the points shared.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Fortaleza vs. Fluminense (Sunday, 10.15pm)

Looking to preserve their unbeaten starts to the new league season, Fortaleza and Fluminense go head-to-head at the Estadio Castelao on Sunday.

The home side currently occupy top spot on the log after four rounds of matches, with the visitors four places below in fifth.

We say: Fortaleza 1-1 Fluminense

The contest could swing either way, as both teams have flown out of the blocks with aplomb. We are anticipating an open and end-to-end affair with the points split in the end.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.

Athletico PR vs. Atletico GO (Sunday, 10.15pm)

Atletico Goianiense travel to take on Athletico Paranaense on Sunday, as both sides look to build on strong starts to the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A season.

Paranaense currently sit in second spot having won their opening three games of the season, while their opponents sit just two points and six places behind.

We say: Athletico Paranaense 2-1 Atletico Goianiense

Both of these sides have been in particularly strong form this season and will be tough to beat, making this the standout game of the weekend in the Brazilian top flight, and it could definitely go either way.

We give Paranaense the narrow edge given their impressive unbeaten run in all competitions, but do not be surprised if the visitors come away with another impressive result.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Juventude vs. Sport (Monday, 12.30am)

Juventude will look to record their first victory of the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A campaign on Monday, when they play host to Sport Recife.

The home side currently sit in the drop zone with two draws and two defeats from their first four games, while their opponents occupy 11th spot having collected four points.

We say: Juventude 0-2 Sport Recife

Sport Recife will be on a high after securing their first league win of the season last time out, and they should have too much for a struggling Juventude on Sunday.

The hosts are yet to win a league game this season, and we would not be surprised to see them fall short again.


Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
