There is already a history of fights between fans of Sao Paulo and Corinthians
It is not the first time that the fans of Corinthians and Sao Paulo have crossed paths. There was already a clash in March of this year, at a train station, hours after those teams met at the Morumbí stadium. That fight left five detainees, who were released a few hours later.
