Santos vs Chapecoense
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 18th July 2017
Kick off at 23:30 UK/ 00:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Urbano Caldeira.
Chapecoense have finally managed to end the dismal run last weekend when they escaped the danger area with a 2-0 win over Sao Paulo on the home patch.
Backing up the success will, however, represent a serious challenge for the visitors who are about to take on in-form Santos in mid-week’s round at Estadio Urbano Caldeira.
Levir Culpi can again be thrilled with Santos’ strongest weapon – defense. Peixe kept consecutive clean sheets in last two Serie A outings with Atletico Mineiro and Vasco da Gama.
It has helped the team extend the positive run to five matches on the trot without a defeat and Santos will come into the game with Chapecoense in high spirits.
Chapeco were winless in seven consecutive matches as the change on the bench (Vinicius Eutropio taking charge of the team) did not bring the wanted effect.
However, the negative run has finally come to an end at the weekend when Tulio de Melo and Lucas Marques scored goals in a 2-0 win over Sao Paulo to move the team away from the danger zone.
Santos vs Chapecoense: Head to head
Peixe have completely dominated the match-up winning four of six games against Chapeco.
The visitors have never managed to leave Estadio Urbano Caldeiras undefeated in three games with the total goal differential 1-9.
Santos vs Chapecoense: Prediction
Santos knew how to keep things tight at the back and we can easily see them keeping the third clean sheet in a row this Wednesday.
Jonathan Copete has been in good touch lately as he bagged a hat-trick in the home win over Sao Paulo and he will be our top option for the anytime goalscorer pick at the odds of 7/10.
Santos vs Chapecoense: Bet Tips
