Santos and Corinthians to Draw at Half Time

While we are not sure which way this game can go, we are certainly expecting a very close game between Santos and Corinthians. With that in mind, we feel that a draw at half time is a realistic prediction. After all, that’s exactly what happened in three of the last five h2h duels between these two teams. Also, a draw at half time was the result in five of the seven games that Santos played at home in Serie A this season.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The last five meetings between Santos and Corinthians have all gone under 2.5 total goals, so there’s no reason to expect anything different in their upcoming duel. In addition to this, Santos averaged 2.29 goals per game so far in Serie A, while Corinthians averaged just 1.86 goals per game in the league this season.

Both Teams to Score – No

Both teams have scored in just one of the previous five duels between these two teams, so it’s safe to assume that this game will follow the same pattern. Furthermore, both teams have scored in just 36% of all Santos matches this season in Serie A, while the same is true for 57% of all Corinthians matches.

Santos vs Corinthians preview: A very tough match to predict

With the two teams only separated by two points in the Serie A standings, it’s clear that we will witness a very close duel. So, let’s take a more detailed look at both teams:


While Santos has been pretty inconsistent this season, they are on course to reach the quarter-finals of Copa do Brasil after beating Juazeirense 4-0 in the first leg. In addition to this, the team also reached the Copa Sudamericana quarter-finals, although they’ve been playing in this competition after being eliminated from Copa Libertadores. Lastly, Santos is currently eighth in Serie A, with five wins, four draws, and five losses.


The team from Sao Paulo is doing well this season in Serie A since they are currently sitting in the ninth spot in the standings. Corinthians has 17 points from the first 13 rounds, but the team has only lost two games in the last eight rounds in the league. So, it’s obvious that they are in solid form at the moment. Caique, Ruan, Mantuan, and Giuliano are currently injured and will miss the upcoming Flamengo duel.
