Sao Paulo vs Santos FC for the Brazillian Serie A championship match on Saturday at Cícero Pompeu de Toledo Stadium.
Next Saturday, 10th August 2019, Sao Paulo and Santos FC face each other for a match for the 14th round of Serie A (Brazil). The game has it’s kick-off at 21:00 at the Morumbi Stadium (São Paulo). The 6th ranked against the 1st of the table.
Santos is easily the best in the country. They started their campaign with a small flaw, but managed to overcome the shortcomings in no time, and took pole position on the table in style.
At the moment, they have won the last five head-to-head matches in the league and are proud of a four-point lead at the top.
However, this weekend, leaders will be severely tested, given Sao Paulo’s continued unbeaten record and home advantage. The hosts of the day are unbeaten so far this season in Serie A at Estadio da Morumbi.
Clashes between the two teams
Eight of the last 11 wins went to Santos.
Santos has conceded a total of one goal in the last four games.
The last five encounters at this venue have seen three away wins.
Sao Paulo has failed to score in two of the last four meetings at this stadium.
Santos is in a run of six straight wins without conceding in three of the last five. They also scored a total of nine goals in their previous two. Away from home, they have won their last three games, and all three have been wins to zero. Also, they have kept their goal unbeaten on five of their previous six trips.
Sao Paulo has not yet lost at home, but most of them were draws, and the stature of these opponents was not as fierce as this squad of visitors.
Besides, the team has only three wins in their last eleven games overall and only four of their last fifteen home games.
With these observations in mind, I see a lot of value betting that Santos will at least guarantee 1 point in this game.
