Santos vs Grêmio for the Brazilian Serie A championship match on Sunday at Urbano Caldeira Stadium.
Here you can see the best prediction for Santos vs Grêmio. At the end of the post, we will also have our free bet for you.
The teams face each other at Vila Belmiro, home of Santos, this Sunday, 22/09/2019.
The match is valid for the 20th round of the Brazilian Serie A Championship, the first game of the second turn.
Santos’s team comes from a 1-0 loss away from home against Flamengo, this result costing the symbolic title of the first half of the Serie A Championship.
It was a game played in midfield, but Santos could not reach any goal.
The team, however, resorted a lot to fouls to be able to hold the game. So they ended up getting five yellow cards, which can complicate their life in the championship.
With the defeat, the team lost the second place of the championship to Palmeiras. Thus, it adds 37 points and occupies the third position.
In the championship there were 19 games with 11 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses.
But the team is in a bad phase. Of those four league defeats, three of them have been in the last six games.
Thus, the team tries to recover the right phase of the beginning of the championship. However, winning at home is a fundamental part of this recovery.
The Grêmio team tries to dedicate themselves to the Brazilian Championship after being eliminated from the Brazilian Cup and having a break in the Copa Libertadores of America games.
Thus, the next meeting for the Continental competition will be only at the beginning of October.
The team undoubtedly has one of the best squads in national football. However, they enter the field with at least six absences, including defender Geromel, who remains in the medical department.
The team has been recovering in the championship, and they are 5 games without losing. Thus, occupies the eighth position with 28 points.
In all there were 19 games for the championship, being 7 wins 7 draws and 5 losses. Thus, the team scored 27 goals and conceded 22.
We have here a meeting of two traditional teams of Brazilian football. Thus, both have chances of finishing the championship in the first positions of the table.
For the match, we can not define a favourite. However, Santos plays at home, where they do not lose in 6 games. Perhaps the time has come for the team to recover.
Already Grêmio enters the pitch also trying to recover in the championship and improve their placement. Since the team has to take advantage of this Continental competition break.
For our free bet, which you can see below, we believe in recovery from Santos, as Grêmio can feel the absence of some players and not make a good start.
