Corinthians take on the visitors Always Ready in the round 6 match of Copa Libertadores group stage. The match will be played on Friday, May 27th at Neo Quimica Arena (Sao Paulo).
Corinthians is trying to simultaneously achieve success on all fronts. "Timau" powerfully carried out most of the past decade. But the last bright success was the championship in 2017. And in the last draw it was, for example, was the 5th place. They obviously wanted more, and for this, Vitor Pereira was invited at the beginning of this year. It cannot be said that everything is so good with the Portuguese in a new place. But still, the start in Serie A turned out to be quite good - yes, points were lost, but the competitors were also not perfect, so it turned out to take the lead. At the same time, the Brazilians are still in the top two in the Copф - they, like Deportivo Cali, have 8 points. And the optimal calendar: finish at home with an underdog.

Always Ready was not competitive in this group. "La Banda Roja" not so long ago rose from the 2nd division of Bolivia. And, having sharply added, they were sensationally able to become the champion of the country in 2020. It did not work out to stay at the peak, they rolled back to the 2nd position. And now, in Apertura, they had to fight until the very end for a place in the playoffs. Even worse Always Ready shows himself in the Copa Libertadores. They got off to a sensational start with a very confident 2-0 win over Corinthians. But in the next 4 matches, they managed to take only 1 point, due to a draw at home with Deportivo Cali. As a result, there are scanty chances to rise from 4th place, but for this they need to win in Brazil and wait for Boca Juniors to misfire in a parallel match.
It's only the 3rd time Always Ready has started in the Copa Libertadores. Not surprisingly, he played for the first time in April against Corinthians and, as mentioned, won there 2-0. Judging by the odds, bookmakers do not see even a minimal intrigue in this pair. But this makes betting on the Brazilians meaningless. Given the importance of the fight, it is better to choose a neutral bet, with "total under 3.5 goals"
Prediction for the match: Under 3.5 goals scored.
