The Tricolors managed to strike a win against Chapecoense SC in their previous away fixture after four winless games.
As the host is unbeaten in the recent league clashes, they have more chances of performing well in the game. Also, Santos has lost only one of their home matches. Since Sao Paulo will be coming off of a double loss later in the campaign, the guest will not have much hope in the encounter.
