Santos FC vs Internacional
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 26th May 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Vila Belmiro (Sao Paulo).
Santos is recovering from their loss against Palmeiras, the topper of the league. They were dealt with a huge 4-0 loss on the road, and it has likely sent some shivers down their spine.
It needs to be noted that Santos was not at their comfortable setting – their home ground. The team has so far won all their games at home.
Same is the case with Internacional. They won all of their home ties but lost every encounter on the road.
The season is still in its initial stages, but a comfortable place in the playoffs would be a morale-booster, and a win in this tie could lift them to a podium spot.

12 of the last 16 wins at this venue went to the hosts.
Santos FC vs Internacional Prediction
Both these teams have won all of their home ties in the league but performed poorly on the road. Internacional especially could not mount a meaningful challenge away from home, losing all of their such games so far.
Santos is on a winning streak of six ties at home and was unbeaten in 20 of their last 22. The team also won 16 of their last 20 attempts in front of the home crowd. As such, expect a win for the Santos squad this weekend.
But do keep in mind that Internacional has a scoring streak going on against Santos for the last ten matches. They have also scored two or more goals in four of the last five h2h fixtures.
At this venue, the team found the back of the net in the last five visits. By all means, expect both teams on the scorecard.
