Santos vs Sao Paulo
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 9th July 2017
Kick-off at 23:00 UK / 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Vila Belmiro, Sao Paulo.

Santos welcome struggling Sao Paulo in the match wherein both teams will look for redemption for their horrible performances in the past two weeks.

Santos FC

Santos played in Copa Libertadores 1/8-finals where they beat Atletico PR with 2-3 on Wednesday.

The hosts faced Atletico GO on the road last week but they only snatched a point from the 1-1 draw. Currently, they are in the 5th position with 17 points earned.

Santos FC are focused on saving their own net this season – they are second best defense in Serie A with only 8 goals allowed so far. Their play style is even more expressed on the home turf – after 6 games played, they scored only 3 goals while conceding 2, which makes it less than a goal per match.

Sao Paulo

The visitors are yet to find the desired form – they point tally stands only at 11, enough for the highest place in the relegation zone.

Sao Paulo’s form is horrible – in the last six games they haven’t tasted the victory while only grabbing two points in addition to six defeats.

Sadly, the situation is similar on the road – Sao Paulo was held back from scoring in 5 out of last 6 away outings.

Santos vs Sao Paulo: Head-to-head

Santos and Sao Paulo squared off earlier this season in Campeonato Paulista when the visitors won with 1-3. However, in the period from 2017 to 2015 and Sao Paulo’s last win, Santos won five out of six games in addition to a draw.

Santos vs Sao Paulo: Prediction

The forthcoming match is expected to be a low-scoring one. Following the trend of Santos’ games on the home turf – we can see Sao Paulo failing to find the net with Santos netting only one – enough for the full prize.
