Chapecoense vs Santos Predictions & Match Preview

Chapecoense vs Santos
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 31 August 2019
Kick-off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Arena Condá (Chapecó).

Teams from either extreme end of the table take on each other in Round 17 of the Serie A. Both will have their own set of objectives to fulfill, from this match-up. Santos needs to get back to their unbeaten ways, as recently they were pushed off the perch by Flamengo. Meanwhile, Chapecoense needs to desperately get out of the relegation zone.

The game also has another angle to be considered, that Santos has scored the second-most number of goals in the competition, while their counterparts have conceded the most. With only the home advantage to lean on for Chapecoense, the match-up should be interesting from a neutral point of view.

Chapecoense vs Santos Prediction

Santos was just recently pushed down a spot from the pinnacle by Flamengo, and for sure the former will be desperate to get back to their earlier position. Supporting their cause, they are going against a relegation-battler, who have conceded the most number of goals this season in the Serie A.

Going on, Chapecoense was winless in 13 of their former 15 match-ups and was so in six of their previous seven appearances in front of the home crowd. Meanwhile, before their three-match winless streak, Santos had won six games in a row and had registered three consecutive wins to nil on the road.

Finally, taking into account that Flamengo is taking on tough customer Palmeiras next in their schedule, the chances for Santos to get back to the top is considerably high, and as such, we should count on them having a great day at the office.
