Santos vs Atletico PR
Date: Friday, 11th August 2017
Kick off at 01:45 UK/ 02:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Urbano Caldeira.
It’s all set for the rematch in one of the most interesting ties in the last 16 round of Copa Libertadores.
Santos managed to get a massive advantage by netting three goals in the first leg played a month ago at Estadio Durival de Britto e Silva.
The home team fans clearly fancy their team’s chances of making it to the quarterfinal of the competition given the fact Santos are unbeaten in last 11 fixtures in all competitions.
The renaissance period came with Levir Culpi’s appointment as the new head coach. Peixe play very attractive football and they are currently holding the third position in the Serie A standings after 19 rounds of the competition.
The clash with Santos comes just at the perfect time for the visitors who seem to have finally managed to find the right shape.
Atletico PR climbed up to the top half of the standings after a horrendous kick off to the new Serie A campaign.
Fabiano Soares’ men tightened things up at the back since the team kept three subsequent clean sheets in consecutive wins over Vasco da Gama, Avai and Palmeiras.
Santos vs Atletico PR: Head to head
Atletico managed to leave Estadio Urbano Caldeira victorious only once in 17 meetings with Santos who have as many as 13 wins there at the same time.
Nikao pushed Atletico in charge only seven minutes into the game in the first leg, but Kayke produced one of the best performances of the season for Peixe as he notched a brace, while Bruno Henrique added one himself in a 2-3 win for Santos.
Santos vs Atletico PR: Prediction
The visitors basically have a mission impossible to beat in-form Peixe by at least two goals difference in order to advance.
However, the tie is not over yet, especially if we know that Atletico have been enjoying quite a decent shape in the recent period.
The best of the betting options would certainly be backing goals as we just can’t see a low-scoring affair under these circumstances.
