Independiente vs Corinthians Soccer Prediction Today
The Independiente won a major victory on Sunday, April 15, by the Argentine Championship. At home, he defeated Boca Juniors, leader of the tournament, by 1 to 0. It was his second consecutive victory.
Even so, the possibility of reaching the title is a remote hypothesis. With 42 points (12 wins, six draws and five losses), Independiente is fourth. The difference for Boca was reduced, but still large, eight points. Among them are Godoy Cruz (46 points) and San Lorenzo (43).
In this way, the fight for the classification for the 2019 edition of Libertadores seems to be the most viable goal for Independiente. The vacancy is awarded to the top five placed Superleague Argentina. The top four go straight into the group stage and the last of the group still needs to play the knockout stage to get there.
This dispute remains open. The Talleres, fifth placed, has only one point less than the Independiente. The sixth-placed Hucacan also enters the pack. Accumulated 40 points. Racing, Union Santa Fé and Argentinos Jrs, with 36; River, Defensa y Justicia and Estudiantes, with 35, also have chances.
Current Brazilian champions, the Corinthians opened their title defense the same way they reached the top last season: playing the bare minimum. On Sunday, at home, they scored 2-1 in Fluminense. In 90 minutes, the team alvinegro sent only two balls on target. With Rodriguinho, made the goals that guaranteed the victory. He did not need more.
The technician Fábio Carille, however, can modify the team that started as a starter. Maycon can win the position of René Júnior. In fact, he should have started playing. However, in advanced negotiation with Shakthar Donetsk, of Ukraine, ended up being removed from the list. The transaction is almost complete, but as the athlete should only appear at the end of the semester, he will continue to play for Corinthians and, therefore, will most likely be among the starters again.
There is doubt in relation to defender Henry. He feels pain in the neck due to a fall in the match against Fluminense. Nevertheless, he was included in the delegation that traveled to Argentina. It is undergoing treatment and should be evaluated again shortly before the game. The expectation is that he is released to act.
In the attack, you should keep the formula ‘fake nine’. Without fixed man of area, it will be up to Rodriguinho to occupy the space when the alvinegro is in the attack. Emerson Sheik is the one who can win a spot ahead. He has been in the bank most of the time being used in the second half. However, his experience may cause Carille to place him from the start in Argentina. If the coach chooses this strategy, Clayton would be left out.
