Santos vs Palmeiras
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 15th June 2017
Kick off at 01:45 UK/ 02:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Urbano Caldeira.
Santos will try and maintain their fine form by grabbing the third win on the bounce this Wednesday when they are about to take on the reigning champions Palmeiras.
The hosts were off to a turbulent start to the new campaign in Serie A as they changed the head coach after four rounds of the competition.
It is proving out to be a positive shock for Peixe who took back-to-back wins in derbies with Botafogo and Atletico PR since Dorival Junior left the team.
Kayke was phenomenal netting a brace in the 0-2 away win over Atletico at the weekend.
The defending champions did not take such radical measures leaving Cuca on the bench in spite of a very slow start to the new season.
However, Verdao also managed to end their dismal streak at the weekend when they claimed a 3-1 victory over Fluminense in a confident display in front of their fans.
Santos vs Palmeiras: Head to head
The rivalry between two of the most famous Brazilian sides will see its 51st episode this Wednesday.
Santos have been slightly more successful as they lead the tie by three wins, but Palmeiras took a 1-2 victory in March this year when the two sides took on each other in Campeonato Paulista.
Santos vs Palmeiras: Prediction
The derby comes in a great moment since both teams will come into the game in high spirits after successful weekend adventures.
