Venue: Estádio Vila Belmiro, São Paulo.
Second-placed Santos FC host Victoria in the last match of Round 28 of Brazilian Serie A. The hosts are quite strong at Estádio Vila Belmiro and they will be looking to continue their domination against Vitoria in Sao Paulo.
Santos are in the second place at the standings and they will fight to secure one of Copa Libertadores spots as Corinthians are already ten points away and their chances for overtaking the first position are very slim. With several teams breathing at their necks, Santos are under some pressure ahead of this duel particularly as they play the last in this round. Santos are one of the best home teams in the league and they will be looking to add another victory in front of their own crowd.
The away side is in the middle of the table and they will fight for Copa Sudamericana as the season is coming to a close. Their away form is very impressive with five victories in the row and stunningly, Vitoria are the second-best team after Corinthians when playing away from home. They are carrying momentum into Sao Paulo and will be aiming to grab another positive result on the road.
