Sao Paulo have been here before. The three-time Copa Libertadores champs won their sole Copa Sudamericana title in 2012 and have the know-how to overturn their 3-1 first-leg deficit.
Managed by legendary former goalscoring goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni, the club will look to invoke their nickname O Clube da Fé (The Faith Team) to reach another final. West Ham fans will remember forward Jonathan Calleri, albeit not the spectacular goalscoring form he has shown in Brazil's biggest city, while ex-Bayern Munich full-back Rafinha and former Atletico Madrid defender Miranda add some European experience.
Before their run to the Copa Sudamericana semi-finals, Atletico Goianiense's greatest achievement was probably winning Brazil's second-tier Serie B title in 2016. The Dragons have already knocked out Paraguayan giants Olimpia and Nacional, one of the biggest teams in Uruguay, and relish being the underdog. Atletico will count on flying full-back Shaylon, once of Sao Paulo, to do the damage against his former club, especially after the 25-year-old scored in last week's first leg.
It's a 1.30am BST kick-off at Cicero Pompeu de Toledo Stadium, Sao Paulo, this Thursday, 9th September, 2022 (8.30pm EDT, Wednesday, or 10.30am AEST). Read on for more details on how to watch a Sao Paulo vs Atletico Goianiense live stream in the Copa Sudamericana, wherever you are in the world.
