Since the Corinthians home was inaugurated in 2014, Team do Povo has played 57 knockout games in Itaquera, adding up to 30 wins, 17 draws and 10 losses between home and away matches and single games in the knockout format, taking advantage of 62%.

Of these 57 matches, 26 were knockout matches, and the club has a 69% success rate in this type of duel at the Arena, with 16 wins, six draws and four defeats. 19 times Timão advanced to the stage, and three times the team was eliminated when they decided at home. Recently, Timão beat Remo in normal time by 2-0 in the Copa do Brasil and advanced on penalties.

Despite the favorable record deciding playoffs at home, Corinthians has been having difficulties in overcoming Galo playing at home. The miners won the last three clashes played at Neo Química Arena

Fiel’s support to help the club reverse the disadvantage will start even before the opening whistle, as the organized fans will receive the Corinthians bus upon arrival at the Corinthian stadium.
