Corinthians vs Juventude Prediction
Both teams are defense-oriented, which means fans should brace themselves for a stodgy affair that is unlikely to produce many goals. Corinthians' offense will depend heavily on Jo, while Juventude's attack has been quite blunt so far. The hosts boast a superior squad and should be able to get past a not-so-impressive Juventude team.
We predict that Corinthians will edge out Juventude by a narrow margin.
