São Paulo vs Santos – Brazilian Serie A: São Paulo hosts Santos at the Pacaembu this Saturday on a Brazilian Serie A match…
One of the biggest Brazilian derbies, that can be decisive both for the relegation battle and the title decision. On the lower side of the table is São Paulo.
The situation was worse for the team from São Paulo. But with good results on the last rounds, including their recent win over Flamengo, the pressure was a bit relieved on the team.
At the moment they sit in 14th place with 37 points and they are already starting to think about qualifying for the Copa Sudamericana.
Playing as hosts, São Paulo has 8 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses, with a goal record of 24 goals scored and 14 goals conceded. For this match, Maicosuel will be absent.

São Paulo vs Santos – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Santos is still fighting for the top of the table. After some draws in a row, the team has beaten Atlético Goianense, reaching 53 points and re-joining the title fight thanks to Corinthians’ slip-ups.
But Santos’ moment of form is unstable. So much that despite the recent win, Santos aren’t very convincing, with their manager Levir Culpi almost being fired from the managerial job.
For this match Levir has gained a last-minute absence, because Zeca started a process against the club. But the team’s best attacker Bruno Henrique should return.
I expect a derby with goals. Both teams have reasonably qualified attacks but some problematic defences who have been very permeable.
Therefore, I think both teams will be able to score.
