These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your betslip before confirming.

Santos to Win with Handicap (-1)

Although Santos failed to reach the Top 16 of the Copa Libertadores, they were third in the group and so they will play in the Top 16 of the Copa Sudamericana. And while the team has lost in the first round of Serie A, they won their next game and managed to reach the fourth round of the Brazilian cup. All in all, they are not only the better team on paper than Juventude, but they are also in better form. So, our prediction is for Santos to win this game by two goals or more.

Santos to Win at Half Time

Since we believe that Santos can get a convincing win against the newly-promoted Juventude side, we also think that they can take the lead before half time. While you can also try Santos to win at half time and full time if you are looking for better odds, we wanted to play it safer and suggest Santos to win at half time.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

While we don’t have any recent head-to-head history to base our prediction on, we expect this to be a high-scoring game. After all, we expect Santos to win with a handicap, so they will have to score at least two goals for that to come true. In any case, Santos has gone over 2.5 total goals in both Serie A matches they played, as well as three of their last five games in all competitions. Juventude has also gone over 2.5 total goals in the first two Serie A rounds and in four of their last five matches across different competitions.

Santos vs Juventude preview: Can Juventude snatch their first win in Serie A?

The newly-promoted Juventude is looking for their first win, while Santos is hoping for the second win in a row in the league. So, let’s check the teams out in more detail:

Santos

After a loss in the first round of Serie A, Santos beat Ceara 3-1 in the second round to get back on the right track. They also managed to eliminate Cianorte with two wins in the third round of the Brazilian cup, so they are now on a streak of three consecutive wins and looking for their fourth one against Juventude. However, Santos also has a lot of injury problems since they will be without five players for the upcoming duel in the league.

Juventude

The start of the new season hasn’t been that great for Juventude since they only took one point in their first two games in Serie A. As a newly-promoted team, it’s expected that they will struggle, especially at the start of the season, but Juventude is looking really bad at the moment since they also failed to reach even the third round of Copa do Brasil as well. In any case, they at least have a clean bill of health, with only Bressan on their injury list and under question for the Santos game.
