Corinthians will be looking to turn around their season

Corinthians host Sao Paulo at the Neo Quimica Arena in Brazil's Serie A on Thursday, with both sides not having particularly great starts to their seasons.

Corinthians are currently 11th in the league, with a win on Thursday potentially taking them into the top five.

Sylvinho's side have not been in the best of form, winning only one of their last six games across all competitions. The Timao will hope to change their fortunes when they take on a poor Sao Paulo side.

Sao Paulo have been woeful this season and are yet to win a league game. Hernan Crespo's side are currently 17th in the table and are looking like they will be part of a relegation scrap this season.

The Soberano are only two points off the bottom of the table and need a win on Thursday in order to turn their season around.

This game is a great chance for Corinthians to climb up the table with a win against a poor Sao Paulo side.

Corinthians vs Sao Paulo Head-to-Head

Sao Paulo have a slight advantage heading into the game based on the recent head-to-head record between the two sides. The Soberano have won two of their last five meetings, with Corinthians only winning one.

The two sides played out a 2-2 draw the last time they met back in May. Luan and Gustavo Mosquito scored for Corinthians to cancel out goals from Miranda and Luciano Neves, as both teams shared the spoils on the night.
