Santos vs Flamengo
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Vila Belmiro.
Both these teams had finished in the top-two spots the last season, and that too with phenomenal stats. However, this time around they have not so far hit their stride, and with the season fast picking up pace, time is running out for the sides to find their form back.
Should they continue with these unimpressive performances, a top-three finish would be unlikely by the time the campaign comes to an end.
As such, the teams are under massive pressure to perform. Considering this desperation and high pressure, along with the sheer offensive potential of these squads are known to have – expect a high-scoring game between the two this Sunday.
Santos vs Flamengo: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met on the pitch, the Santastic recorded a 4-0 win at home.
- Before that, their counterparts were on a two-game winning run.
- Four of the preceding seven encounters had three or more goals.
- Three of the former four meetings at this ground had four or more goals, as well as goals from both teams.
Santos vs Flamengo: Prediction
These two sides were the best in business in Brazil the last year, and were banging in goals left and right. In fact, the Vultures, who also are the reigning champions, had slotted in an unimaginable 86 goals from their 38 matches.
Going on, they had also scored two or more goals in 16 of their preceding 23 overall fixtures, and in eight of their last eleven road trips.
Counterparts, the Santastic, meanwhile have been on a roll at home. They have lost just once at this venue in their former 25 appearances, and had scored three or more goals in three of the past four h2h encounters.
In addition, meetings between these two squads have recently been high-scoring affairs, and under this pressurised scenario, expect something of the like to happen again.
The BTTS bet look very promising.
