Santos – Can Santos move top of Serie A?

Santos sit in 2nd place in the Brazilian top flight and just 2 points behind league leaders Palmeiras prior to Wednesday night’s clash with mid-table Corinthians, and all three points in this encounter would see the hosts move top of the table albeit if shortly as Palmeiras play Avai on Thursday night.

Santos have produced some solid displays so far this season as they’ve suffered just 1 defeat out of their first 8 matches overall in Serie A which was a heavy 4-0 loss away at the aforementioned league leaders, Palmeiras, but they’ll be keen to stay in touch at the top with all three points here.

Recent wins against Vasco da Gama 3-0, Ceara 1-0 and a 3-1 home win over Atletico Mineiro have set the hosts up for further success here, and along with a solid looking home record which stands at 3-1-0 8/2, Santos look in good shape for the spoils in this one.

Santos have won 7 of their last 10 matches at their Estádio Urbano Caldeira in Sao Paulo and they’ve kept 5 clean sheets during this pretty solid sequence of results, while they’re unbeaten at home in their last 8 meetings against tonight’s opponents, Corinthians, in all competitions.

Corinthians Prediction – Can Corinthians break Santos’s strangle-hold?

Corinthians also bring a recent solid sequence of results into this clash at Santos as the visitors have put together a 6-match unbeaten run into this encounter which includes wins against Chapecoense, Athletico PR and Sao Paulo along with 3 draws with Vasco da Gama, Gremio and Cruzeiro.

However, it’s worth noting that most of Corinthians’ early success so far this season has been achieved at their Arena Corinthians where they still remain unbeaten on home turf with wins over Chapecoense and Sao Paulo, while results away from home have been a little more modest.

Corinthians possess an away record of 1-2-1 5/4, and with just 1 win out of their last 15 matches on their travels, which was the aforementioned win at Athletico PR, they may well struggle again on the road despite this being a local clash in Sao Paulo.

History also appears to be against them when facing Santos in their opponents’ own backyard as they’ve failed to beat their hosts in their last 8 visits.


Key-Facts – Santos v Corinthians

  • Santos have won 7 of their last 10 matches at their Estádio Urbano Caldeira
  • Santos are unbeaten in their last 8 meetings against Corinthians at home
  • Corinthians have won just 1 out of their last 15 matches on their travels


Betting Tips Verdict

Santos have held the upper hand over Corinthians at home for some time and this trend looks set to continue here on Wednesday night.
