Lucas Moura opened the scoring in Sao Paulo's 2-2 draw at Corinthians last weekend. He has been in sensational form for the hosts, scoring in four of his last five matches. The former PSG and Tottenham midfielder is the club's go-to penalty taker, as four of his last four goals came from the spot. He'll fancy his chances against Cuiaba.
