Santos to Win

Even though Santos lost the first game of the season and even though that loss was pretty convincing, our prediction is for Santos to win this game. The two teams were similarly positioned last season and Ceara won their first game last weekend, but they did need to score three times to snatch that victory. The recent h2h history between these teams is pretty even as well, so our prediction comes down to our hunch and the fact that Santos is playing at home.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The recent history of duels between Santos and Ceara doesn’t really support our prediction since we’ve only seen one of their last five games go over 2.5 total goals. That being said, both teams have been playing high-scoring games recently, including both of them going over 2.5 total goals in the first round of Serie A. Furthermore, Ceara averaged 2.76 goals per game last season, while Santos averaged 2.71 goals per game in 2020.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Once again, we’ve seen both teams score in only two of the last five duels between these two teams, but we expect this game to be different. Both teams have scored in two of the last four games by both teams in all competitions, so both teams scoring in this match wouldn’t come as such as surprise either.

Santos vs Ceara preview: Can Ceara start the season with two wins?

The two teams started the new season in a different manner – Santos lost their first game convincingly, while Ceara managed to snatch a win in the first round. With that in mind, let’s check both teams out in more detail:

Santos

The team from the Sao Paulo state entered the new season after a poor showing in the Copa Libertadores. However, they will continue to compete in continental football since they’ve finished third in their group and secured a place in the Copa Sudamericana Top 16. But their poor form continued in the first round of Serie A since the team lost 3-0 to Bahia. Meanwhile, Santos won 2-0 in Copa do Brasil in their mid-week game. Another problem for the team is the injury list with more than a few names on it.

Ceara

Even though the team from Fortaleza failed to win their Copa Sudamericana group and progress, they didn’t play badly in that competition and the fans were hopeful ahead of the start of Serie A. That seemed to be based in reality since the team started the season with a 3-2 win over Gremio, after which they’ve drawn in an away Cup game against Fortaleza. Ceara will be without suspended Mendoza in this game, along with Fabinho, Jacare, and Otavio.
