The Brazilian outfit are currently on a run of six straight home wins across all competitions and will look to continue in the same vein.
Corinthians failed to find their feet last Sunday as they could only salvage a 1-1 draw with Cruzeiro in the Brasileiro Serie A.
This followed a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Santos in the second leg of the Copa do Brasil semi-finals on August 16 which saw their 11-match unbeaten run come to an end.
Vanderlei Luxemburgo’s men now return to action in the Copa Sudamericana, where they saw off Universitario in the round of 32 before claiming a 2-1 aggregate win over Newell’s Old Boys in the last 16.
Estudiantes, on the other hand, picked up 14 points from their six group-stage games to finish as runners-up in Group C, before edging out Barcelona and Goias in the first two knockout-stage games.
Eduardo Dominguez’s side head into Wednesday’s game fresh off the back of crashing out of the Argentine Copa de La Liga courtesy of a 2-1 loss against Belgrano.
Prior to that, Estudiantes were on a six-match winning streak across all competitions, a run which has seen them rise to fifth place in the Argentine Primera Division.
