Santos vs Ceara: Predictions and Betting Tips
Santos were founded in 1912, and in its 112-year history have won the Serie A eight times, making them one of Brazil’s most successful teams. The legendary Pelé also spent most of his career playing for the side.
The season has not started well for Santos, as they lost their first match 3-0 to Bahia.
Santos are not among the favourites to win Serie A this season, but they are expected to qualify for the Copa Libertadores or at least the Copa Sudamericana.
Ceara were founded in 1914, and despite having more than a century of history, they have never shone as a team and winning tournaments has proved very difficult for them.
Ceara started the season with a surprise 3-2 win over Gremio, one of the favourites to win the Serie A title.
- Three losses and two wins for Santos in their last five games
- Three consecutive home wins for Santos
- Three consecutive home games without conceding a goal for Santos
- Three wins, one defeat and one draw for Ceara in their last five games
- Two consecutive matches conceding at least one goal for Ceara
Santos vs Ceara Predictions
Despite Santos’ loss on the first matchday and Ceara’s win, Santos are a team that should finish the league in the top half of the table while Ceara will struggle to avoid relegation. Indeed, Santos perform well at home; they have won their last three matches at home.
Both teams finished the first matchday with more than 2.5 total goals in their respective games, which indicates that neither team are defensively-minded, instead playing a more attacking style of football. Therefore, we think this match could also end with more than 2.5 total goals.
