Corinthians are the favourites to lift the title but will face a tough challenge from European champions Chelsea, who have recently changed manager.
Tite told reporters: “Individual characteristics will remain part of their team. But now with Benitez’s new structure it will change. Against Manchester City they were dominated in the first half, but then they were balanced.
“They have changed their idea of football, it was notorious. They were a team that marked tightly, seeking the counterattacks, very competitive and had quick transitions, but not without some possession.
“They’ve changed that, their football is more fluid, a line of three more creative players, but it didn’t fit because it is a natural process to adjust.”
