The 8th round of Brazil Serie A will kick-start this week as Santos plays host to Palmeiras who are on a 6-game unbeaten run. These two sides will go h2h at Estadio Vila Belmiro this Sunday.
Palmeiras is at the 2nd spot on the standing with 12 points from 7 games. They won and drew 3 games each while having lost once. They are one of the favorites to win Serie A season, as they have been impressive as of late. The visitors have the best defense in the league and they are currently in the Copa Libertadores promotion zone.
The visitors go into this game after a 4-1 Copa Libertadores win over Deportivo Tachira in their most recent fixture. It is due to their goal ratio, that they came second and Sao Paulo, Atletico MG and Botafogo Rj also share the same points with them. Their last league fixture ended on a 3-0 win against Juventude.
On the other hand, Santos reside at the 6th position on the table with 11 points. Of the 7 matches played, they won 3 times in the league while having drawn and lost twice each. They have been not at all consistent this season, winning and losing games in an uneven manner.
The hosts head into this fixture coming off the back of a 1-1 Copa Sudamericana drawn match over Banfield. They have given the opposition little, with the total number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their previous 6 outings stands just 3.
