Santos to Win

The Brazilian team that managed to reach the Copa Libertadores final last year will have to be happy if they reach the same stage of Copa Sudamericana this season. The team is not doing great in Serie B, but not bad either and they’ve been inconsistent since the start of the season. Meanwhile, Independiente is on a break for the past month and their last game was the loss in the semi-final of the Argentine cup. With that in mind, our prediction is for Santos to win this game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Santos averaged 2.83 goals per game in Copa Libertadores this season, while Independiente averaged 2.67 goals per game so far in Copa Sudamericana. With that in mind, we expect these two teams to combine for at least three goals in their upcoming Copa Sudamericana matchup.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in just 33% of all Santos matches in Copa Libertadores this season, but we’ve seen both teams score in four of the six games played by Independiente in Copa Sudamericana. Also, both teams have enough quality in the offence to score a goal in this game, so we hope to see them both score at least a goal.

Santos vs Independiente preview: One of the closest duels in the Top 16 round

It’s always interesting when Brazilian and Argentinian teams meet, which is the case in this Santos vs Independiente duel. So, let’s take a closer look at both of these teams:

Santos

After reaching Copa Libertadores final last season, Santos had to sell some of their main starts to stay afloat financially. So, it wasn’t such a surprise when they were eliminated from Copa Libertadores. Luckily, they finished third in the group so they can try to win Copa Sudamericana instead. The team is currently in the 10th place in the Brazilian Serie A, with two wins, two losses, and a draw in their last five league matches.

Independiente

Like other Argentinian teams, Independiente was on a break for the past month and more. Their last competitive match was a semi-final of their domestic cup, which they lost 2-0 to Colon. Before that, Independiente topped their Copa Sudamericana group to reach the Top 16 phase of the competition.
