Can anyone offer any insight into how seriously teams take these Paulista games? In other words, are they meaningful games or more like pre-season? Should we expect Naiane, Skowronska, Saraelen to play for Barueri tonight? And Tandara, Bia, Fabiola to play for Osasco tonight?
Relatively seriously, I would say. Naiane, Saraelen, Tandara, Bia, Fabíola, they are all playing the playoffs already. The tournament is clearly more of a preseason preparation, but teams still want the win, even if it is just to dethrone Osasco. There is another Paulista tournament that is held before (Copa São Paulo), and that one is what I would say is meaningless.
Skowronska will probably only debut next week in the Superliga.
