Santos will welcome Palmeiras to Estádio Urbano Caldeira for a matchday 8 fixture in Brazil Serie A. The last meeting on 13th March 2022 ended in a Palmeiras 1-0 win. Both sides have met thirty-four times in the most recent seasons. Santos has won 12 matches, and Palmeiras triumphed in 13. Recent outings average 2.24 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
Santos’s last game in the Brazil Serie A against Ceará at home ended in a 0-0 draw. They had more ball possession and created more goal-scoring opportunities but didn’t benefit from it.
Palmeiras’s previous game in the competition versus Juventude ended in an away 3-0 win. Verdão was comfortable on the ball for most of the game and constantly avoided the press. Palmeiras was pretty good in both halves and scored in the 9th, 31st and 90+2 minute.
Since the start of the season, León del Mar is more dominant at home. They have three wins out of 4 games on home soil. Peixe’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 50% of home games.
Palmeiras has picked up 12 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Palestra wins 1.67 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Alvinegro Praiano is undefeated at home but not considered a favourite. They have drawn 25% of home games. Alvinegro Praiano has won just 75% of home games. On average they score 2.25 goals and concede 0.50 per game. Palmeiras won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Santos wins on average 2.50 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Palmeiras. My prediction is Palmeiras to win.
