The home team suffered a 1-0 loss against Juventude in their previous league outing as Luccas Claro's own goal proved to be their undoing. It was their second loss in a row and they are in 13th place in the standings.

Atletico Mineiro played out a goalless draw against Palmeiras in their top-of-the-table clash on Sunday, which allowed Corinthians to take pole position in the standings.
