Sport Recife Preview – Can Sport Recife return to winning ways?

It’s been a mixed start to this new Brazilian Serie A campaign for Thursday’s hosts and newcomers, Sport Recife, having won, drawn and lost in equal measure in their opening three matches of this new domestic top flight season, but they return to their Estádio Adelmar da Costa Carvalho for this clash against Santos looking to chalk up a second home win.

Sport Recife started quickly out of the blocks with a 3-2 home win against Ceara on the opening day but have subsequently been pegged back on their travels with a 2-0 loss at Vasco da Gama and a point in a 1-1 draw with Atletico GO.

The newly-promoted hosts have managed just two wins from their previous nine matches in Serie A which is partly when they last appeared in the Brazilian top flight two seasons ago, while their last meeting at home against Santos ended up in a 2-1 victory for Sport Recife.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Santos Preview – Can Santos go one step better this term?

Last season’s runners-up in the Brazilian top flight, Santos, will be aiming to go one step better this time around as they look to knock Flamengo off their perch at the summit of Serie A, and the visitors head into this upcoming clash against Sport Recife on the back of a 3-1 home win over Atletico PR.

In truth, it was Santos’s impressive results and form on home turf at their Estádio Urbano Caldeira which earned them 2nd place, but their results away from home will have to improve this time around if they’re to seriously challenge Flamengo this season.

Back-to-back defeats away from home at the end of last season at Fortaleza and Athletico PR have been joined by a 2-0 loss at Internacional at the start of this new campaign, making it three losses on the trot on their travels but their win last week will give them a boost for this clash on Thursday night.
