Santos to Win

Santos have won two of their four previous encounters with Barcelona since 2004, each of which has been in the Copa Libertadores. The hosts have only lost one of their last six matches in all competitions and play in a more competitive league than Barcelona. The visitors haven’t won any of their last three away games and we’re expecting that total to increase this week.

Over 2.5 Goals

At least three goals have been scored in four of Santos’ last five outings in league and cup, while four of Barcelona’s last five fixtures have also produced over 2.5 goals. The only time these two sides produced over 2.5 goals when playing against one another, ended in a 3-1 win for Santos.

2-1 Santos

Santos claimed a 2-1 win in their last game against Inter de Limeira and have scored two or more goals in three of their last five games. Barcelona have conceded exactly two goals in three of their last five matches and have only failed to find the back of the net in one of their last six outings.

These two sides have history in the Copa Libertadores

We’re going to take a look at the recent performances of both clubs and bring you any up to date team news we have available.

Santos

Santos have the home advantage against Barcelona and head into Wednesday’s clash as the form favourites with two wins, three draws and just one defeat from their last six fixtures. Santos failed to beat Barcelona when the two sides met in 2017, losing 1-0 at home and drawing 1-1 away, so this week’s hosts will be out for revenge.  The Serie A season is yet to begin, so Santos will be putting their full concentration on the Copa Libertadores, while their guests play their 10th Liga Pro game just four days after their trip to Brazil. Guilherme Nunes was sent-off in Santos’ last game but that suspension doesn’t affect his ability to play against Barcelona if required.

Barcelona

Barcelona sit second in Ecuador’s top flight but have only won two of their last six matches in all competitions and have been spending a little too many goals for their own liking of late. Barcelona could only manage a 2-2 draw away at Mushuc Runa last time out, having to come from 2-goals down and missing an 89th-minute penalty that would have secured all 3pts.
