Santos to win

Universidad Catolica will have a difficult test against a Brazilian team that needs points. For us, it would be hard to see Santos failing against the Ecuadorians.

So, we suppose this would be an easy job for the Brazilian club.

Under 2.5 Goals

In the first matchday, the visitors got a nil-nil draw and the host could not open the scoreboard. They both will focus on having clean sheets and then being the opener.

So we don’t expect a high score in this matchup.


Santos could improve their defensive line that used to concede many goals in every game. In the last two matches, the Brazilians only conceded once. 

We predict that they are going to have a second clean sheet in a row.

Santos vs Universidad Catolica Preview: Santos must return to winning ways to improve their standing


The team lost 1-0 to Banfield in Argentina for the first match of Group C of Copa Sudamericana. Initially, it was Santos who came into the match as favourites, but little was seen of the Paulista side, who lacked confidence.

Banfield took on their powerful opponents with some set pieces, crosses, and aerial deliveries. That is how they put the ball back in the net and defended the lead to take the three points in the debut in Copa.

Universidad Catolica

Universidad Catolica will be looking to get a new achievement in Copa Libertadores. The Ecuadorians will be sending out their best team ahead of the clash against Santos on the second matchday.

In the opening match, the visitors could not break the tie against Union la Calera, who also had a good defensive performance. However, they turned the page by beating 4-0 9 de Octubre in the Equatorial First Division
