Sao Paulo vs Racing Club: Storylines
Sao Paulo have been doing great ever since former world-class striker Hernán Crespo took the helm a few months ago. They will fight for silverware in the Campeonato Paulista and find themselves a step close to the Libertadores round of 16. Still, the upcoming game means an interesting challenge for their title aspirations.
Racing Club went through stressful months until everything changed with a string of good results. Juan Antonio Pizzi was rumored to be on the verge of the sack until his side got into the League Cup knockout stage and kept unbeaten in South America's greatest prize.
Last week, the Brazilian team claimed only one point in their visit to Rentistas in Uruguay, while La Academia earned a huge triumph against Sporting Cristal in Peru.
