Santos are eighth in the league and have won two of their last five league games. They are seven points behind second-placed Corinthians, but their current form does not bode well. Having lost 4-0 to Corinthians in the first leg of the round of 16 in the Copa do Brasil, Santos have a tough job on their hands in the second leg.

20 - Corinthians haven't lost in their last 20 home games in the Brasileirão (W14 D6); their second longest unbeaten home run under the league format (since 2003), only behind a sequence of 29 games between 2015 and 2016 (W23 D6). Support.

Former Zenit Saint Petersburg midfielder Giuliano de Paula scored a brace in the first leg, with young attacker Gustavo Mantuan and centre-back Raul Gustavo also registering goals. It will be interesting to see how Corinthians line up against Santos, given their huge lead.

7 - Cássio made the most saves (7, exc. penalty shootouts) among goalkeepers that didn't concede any goals in the round of 16 of the 2022 Libertadores. Wall.

While both teams have displayed inconsistent form in the league recently, Corinthians should triumph over Santos here.
