Santos – Can Santos consolidate their top four spot?

Santos have suffered just the 1 defeat out of their first 7 matches of the new Brazilian top flight season which ended in a 4-0 rout away at the hands of Palmeiras, but the hosts will still be in confident mood of taking something from this clash as they return to their Estádio Urbano Caldeira in Sao Paulo having secured a 1-0 win away at Ceara last time out in Serie A.

In fact, Santos have lost just twice in their last 10 matches overall in Serie A which were both away from home as the earlier loss came in the shape of a 2-1 loss away at Sport Recife towards the end of last season, but results on home turf have continued to remain solid.

Santos have lost just 1 of their last 14 matches on home soil with that loss being a surprise 1-0 loss to Chapecoense back in November of last year, but 8 wins and 5 draws have resulted in the hosts being a hard nut to crack in their own backyard.

Forward Sasha (3 goals) looks the most likely to notch for Santos here.

Atletico MG Prediction – Can Atletico MG close the gap on Palmeiras?

Atletico Mineiro sit in 2nd place and four points behind Serie A league leaders, Palmeiras, prior to their trip to Sao Paulo, but the visitors know that all three points here could see them close the gap to just a single point on the early leaders.

The visitors make their way to Sunday’s clash with Santos on the back of a convincing 4-0 home win over CSA, and overall Atletico MG look in good shape as they’ve collected 5 wins out of their first 7 matches of the new Brazilian domestic top flight campaign.

Wins over Avai, Vasco da Gama, Ceara, Flamengo and CSA have lifted Atletico MG up into contention for a top four finish and automatic qualification for a Libertadores spot, and goals have also featured where the visitors are concerned on their travels too.

4 of Atletico MG’s last 5 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals scored and with midfielder Cazares (2 goals) and forward Chara (3 goals) in their personnel, the visitors should also find the net here on Sunday evening.
