Corinthians is behind by 2 at the begin of the second league, they are the solid leaders of Serie A and that allows them to focus a little more at Brazil Cup. Interviews suggest a serious, interested side. Santos wouldn't mind losing the game by one goal and should be really defensive which usually doesn't produce good results in Brazil. I had expect -1 or even -1.25 handicaps but Asia is quite a surprise here, with a minor quarter ball handicap. I consider Corinthians favorite and shouldn't have problems to win especially considering the aggregate score effect on the teams: the 1x0 victory would still suit the visitors needs. That kind of handicap would only be explained by a sub team or turnover from Corinthians which definitely isn't the case as of now.
Corinthians had a poor match start and the early goal shook their confidence majorly. The team was a regular team as expected but they were far from their Serie A form here
