Santos FC vs Chapecoense Prediction
Santos were on the road the last match-day, and lost 2-1, to Fortaleza. Chapecoense meanwhile lost 0-1 at home, against Botafogo the prior game week.
In contrast to other Serie A fixtures this weekend, this one will be comparatively mellow. The reason being – both teams are already sure of their futures and do not have any reason to go into panic mode.
In regards to result, Santos are placed second in the table and were unbeaten in 13 of their last 15 matches. At home, they are on an unbeaten run of seven games and won six of these. On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in 29 of their previous 34 overall fixtures and were so in 16 of their prior 19 on the road.
Also consider the fact that Chapecoense are already relegated, and do not possess any will to fight for practically a meaningless win. On top of that, they are on the road against a Serie A heavyweight.
Finally, Santos have dominated this opponent to such an extent at this venue, that they hold a 100% winning record in h2h clashes this decade, barring a single game.
Taking into account all these factors, expect a strong performance from Santos, and a very convincing victory.
