Palmeiras vs Santos
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Parque.
After Flamengo, these two were easily the best teams in the Serie A the last season by a mile. They expectedly finished second and third in the table.
However, the Santastic have not made a solid start to their season, and noticeably have been struggling on the road for quite some time.
On the other hand, their counterparts are unbeaten at present in the season, and also have been on a phenomenal run at home. They also do have a great h2h record against this rival at this venue.
For the reasons, expect Palmeiras to emerge victorious this Sunday at the Allianz Parque.
Palmeiras vs Santos: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Periquito recorded four of the previous six overall h2h wins.
- They kept clean sheets in three of the preceding four encounters.
- The biggest win the last decade belongs to them – as they registered a 4-0 victory at home in 2019.
- At this stadium, the hosts recorded ten of the former fifteen wins.
- The hosts also scored two or more goals in four of the last five meetings at this ground.
Palmeiras vs Santos: Prediction
The Santastic were winless in six of their former eight overall match-ups, and remained so in eight of their preceding eleven road trips.
They have also lost all of their away fixtures since March, except for their encounter against Sport Recife – one of the newest teams in the competition.
On the other hand, Periquito were unbeaten in 23 of their former 25 overall fixtures, and they also are on a 13-match unbeaten run at home. In fact, they had won eight of their last ten appearances at this venue.
Moreover, they had also recorded four of the last six overall h2h wins, and registered ten of the former fifteen such wins at this stadium – which also included the biggest h2h victory in over a decade.
Taking into account these observations, expect Palmeiras to deliver a great performance this Sunday.
