Sport Recife vs Santos FC
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 20 August 2020
Kick-off at 23:15 UK/ 24:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Ilha do Retiro (Recife).
Sport Recife hasn’t been able to carry on their winning streak after their win in the opening match at home against Ceara. They have been winless in the recent two fixtures, following a 1-1 draw on the road against Atletico GO in the last league clash.
The host is on a three-game winning streak in their home matches in the schedule across all major competitions around. Since their winless games came away from home, the Lions will look forward to using their ground advantage in the game.
On the other hand, Santos FC has only one win in their last seven outings in the fixtures across all major contests in the records. They are also in a losing streak on the road for the past three matches in the schedule.
Santos FC started the season on the wrong foot, and it took them their third clash to finally win all three points from a clash in the league. After two winless games in the campaign, they will visit after a 3-1 win at home against the likes of Athletico PR in their previous league clash.
Sport Recife vs Santos Head-to-head (h2h)
- Only one of their last five clashes has ended in a draw.
- Their previous encounter gave a 2-1 home win for the Lions.
- The host has been unbeaten at home in the last 7 meetings.
- Two of their recent three fixtures have seen both teams score.
- The host has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
Sport Recife vs Santos Prediction
Having won their previous home match in the league this season, the host will be close to turning this into another success at home. However, the promoted side will not be a threat to the Serie A runners-up last season.
With the host still standing a narrow chance in the game, away win will probably be the best bet in the encounter for the punters.
The tip for over 1.5 goals will also serve a decent alternate purpose in the encounter since the last 6 involving Santos, combined both cup and league games saw the same.
