Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: Santos win to nil
Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365
Two sides enduring very different levels of success in Brazil’s top-tier, Santos have their sights set on making a late charge for top-spot in Serie A.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another rugged display and snatching points off of fellow Copa Libertadores contenders Internacional over the weekend, Santos have continued to enjoy a real purple patch. Handed the chance to leapfrog Palmeiras to second spot in midweek, they find the mood in their camp on the rise. Enjoying a five-match unbeaten run and yet to taste defeat in October, it will undoubtedly be their newfound defensive resolve most impressing fans around Sao Paulo. Santos have now recorded four clean sheets on the bounce and have gone over 400 minutes without picking the ball out of their net.
As for the visitors, while Ceara may have managed to snatch a hard-fought 1-0 win over fellow strugglers Avai on home soil last weekend, they are still in the midst of a real relegation scrap. Holding just a one-point buffer over the bottom-four and securing just a single victory since the 10th of August, a huge part of their continued issues has come down to some worrying performances on their travels. Losing their last three matches on the bounce while outside of Fortaleza, it should also be noted that they have now not secured an away victory since the end of May.
Bet: Santos 6/5 to beat Ceara to nil in Thursday’s Brazil Serie A contest @ Bet 365
