Santos enter this game following a scoreless draw with Corinthians in Serie A.
Santos enjoyed a 38 percent possession advantage in that game and 2 of their 7 shots on goal were successful. One of Corinthians' nine goal attempts was successful.
Santos haven't typically been able to hold out for a full 90 minutes in recent years. In fact, Santos' defense has been breached in 5 of their last 6 games, allowing 9 goals in that span. Of course, there is no guarantee that this tendency will continue.
The form guide for this game indicates that Santos:
had won both of their home league games prior to this one.
have lost all four of their league games they've played at home. Soon, something must change.
We have a tendency to believe that Flamengo and Santos may end up being tied because both clubs are capable of scoring in this match.
As we anticipate there to be little difference between them, a draw is a real possibility. Therefore, we anticipate a very even game with a 1-1 tie as the final score.
