Santos to Win

The Verdao has the home advantage, and their next opponent has yet to win their first away game in the Brasileirao Serie A. The Peixe look superior in this match, 3 consecutive victories make us think that they will also take these three points although with some difficulty.

Over 2.5 Goals

Although Santos is second in the table and Goias are sixteenth, it is the home side who has the better goals scored average, however, they also have a higher goals conceded average. We, therefore, expect this to be a high-tempo match with a wide scoreline after the end of the game.

BTTS – Yes

The Peixe has conceded goals in 4 of their 5 visits this season, so we see a chance of Goias scoring. Although the Verdao have only won 1 of their last 5 games, they have managed to score in each of them. So it is very likely that both teams will make their fans jump.

Goias vs Santos Preview: Two points from glory and disgrace


Boss Umberto Louzer has tried different schemes and rotated his players to achieve the balance that has been lacking at the start of the season, which has been full of irregular results. In the previous match, the Verdao managed to get out of the bottom of the table after an important 1-0 win over Atlético Goianiense.

This was a match full of controversy, as after Elvis scored a quick goal in the first minute, Goias defended their advantage and gave the ball to their opponents. All was made worse when Henrique Lordelo was sent off for a double yellow in the 26th minute, but they withstood the 33 shots and kept a clean sheet.


The Alvinegro’s rhythm is getting better and better, they have achieved 3 wins in a row in 3 different competitions, this shows that they are going to fight for everything this season. In their last league game, they defeated Cuiaba, who up to that point had the same points as the Peixe.

While Santos enjoy a great second place, their previous opponents were relegated to eleventh after being beaten 4-1. The key to this match was their finishing, as with only 7 shots Santos managed to convert more than half of them into goals.
