Vitoria vs Santos
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 21st June 2017
Kick off at 23:30 UK/ 00:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Manoel Barradas.
Vitoria confirmed the good form with an impressive performance in beating Sport Recife 1-3 on the road on Sunday evening.
Can Leao da Barra keep it going in mid-week when they host Santos in the ninth round of Serie A?
Alexandre Gallo has been doing a phenomenal job on Vitoria’s bench lately since the team took seven points from last three matches after a dreadful opening to the new campaign in the top flight of Brazilian football.
The main rise in their game can be noticed in the final third since the team bagged at least two goals in each of their last three outings with the likes of Atletico Mineiro, Botafogo and Sport Recife.
However, maintaining this fine attacking form will be one hell of a task for Gallo and his men since Santos kept four clean sheets on the bounce.
Peixe have had a very turbulent period at the start of the season, but things generally look much better since Levir Culpi took over Dorival Junior on the bench.
However, the three.win streak has been interrupted this weekend with a disappointing goalless draw against Ponte Preta on the home ground.
Vitoria vs Santos: Head to head
Santos have been super dominant in the most recent history of the head to head meetings with Leao da Barra.
Peixe won four matches on the trot having notched three goals in three games along the way.
Vitoria vs Santos: Prediction
It is very hard to say which of the two sides is closer to getting points here. We can’t ignore Vitoria’s impressive form which makes the 6/4 odds offered on the home win more than attractive.
However, our main focus will be on backing Under 2.5 goals in the match since Santos have been playing super tight lately.
