Santos vs Palmeiras
Brazil Serie A
Date: Friday, 20 July 2018
Kick-Off at 00:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Urbano Caldeira (Santos).
One of the most interesting clashes in the 13th round of Brazilian Serie A is going to be contested between Santos and Palmeiras. Home side is not enjoying a good campaign as they are positioned in the bottom half of the table, or to be more precise, on the 15th spot.
Their recent form has been variable as they managed to book two wins in the last five rounds. Jair Ventura’s side needs to improve their defending as they have already conceded 16 times, while their attackers haven’t managed to compensate that record.
Santos need to stabilize their form if they want to climb up to the top half of the table.
Palmeiras are fighting for the top four spots and they are in a pretty fine form. They haven’t been defeated in the last four rounds and the visitors are just three points behind 4th placed Internacional.
Willian and the lads are doing a very good job in front of the opposition’s’ goal, as they managed to find the back of the net 18 times so far. The visitors are performing very well when playing away from home as they suffered just two defeats at away grounds.
Santos vs Palmeiras: Head-to-head
Both sides have been equally successful lately and in their last seven head to head clashes the crowd wasn’t able to see them splitting points. Their encounters haven’t been too efficient so far and they are pretty tight.
Santos vs Palmeiras: Prediction
This one is going to be very tight clash and although the hosts are not in a good form, they should be motivated enough to put an outstanding display. We are expecting Santos to celebrate in this one and start climbing towards the top of the table.
Although their clashes haven’t been too efficient, in this one we could see goals in both nets. The hosts are capable of finding the back of the net, while Ppalmeiras are very good in the final third and they could produce at least one goal in this one.
