Newell’s Old Boys vs Santos – Free Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

These are our Newell’s Old Boys vs Santos predictions and tips:

Santos or Draw

Although Newell’s Old Boys are today’s favourites, we haven’t been too impressed by their recent results. Gabriel Heinze’s men managed one win in their last four matches, with a draw and two losses. By comparison, Santos have fared relatively better than today’s opponents; they are coming off back-to-back wins, with five wins in their last eight matches. It’s important to point out that Santos are unbeaten in their last four games, losing just once in their last eight matches. On that note, we don’t think the visitors will lose today.

Both Teams Will Not Score

We’ve already established that Newell’s Old Boys won just one of their last four games; it’s also worth mentioning that they failed to score in three of those matches. It may interest you to know that Newell’s Old Boys’ matches have been very one-sided in goal-scoring terms; as both teams could not score in any of their last nine matches. Likewise, both teams managed to score in just one of Santos’ last nine games; and on that note, we are fairly confident that one of these teams will blank.

Less Than Two Goals

We mentioned that Santos suffered one loss in their last six matches; it’s also fair to point out that they kept six clean sheets in that eight-game stretch. Due to their solid defense, Santos have seen a lot of low-scoring matches in recent months. Six of Santos’ last seven matches featured less than three goals, with five of those games going under 1.5. In like manner, Newell’s Old Boys blanked in three of their last four matches, and six of their last seven games went under 1.5. For this reason, we shouldn’t expect these teams to score up to two goals between them.

Newell’s Old Boys

Newell’s Old Boys played out a goalless draw with Argentinos Juniors a few days ago; that was their second consecutive match without a win, and the third time they failed to score in four games. Gabriel Heinze’s men will hope to get back to winning ways today, it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll match-up against this Santos side.


On the other hand, Santos are coming off a hard-fought 3-2 victory over America Mineiro; they have now won back-to-back games, and have no losses in their last four matches. Odair Hellmann’s lads will be eyeing their third straight win as they take on an out-of-form Newell’s Old Boys.
