Since their relegation from the Brazilian Cup, Santos has played three games in the Brazilian league: an away defeat to Avai, a home win over Botafogo, and an away draw against Fortaleza. The Fish's six most recent matches in the three tournaments have been draws. Before the reporting game, Santos is in 9th place in the Brazilian championship standings, 16 points behind the leading Palmeiras. The gap to Inter, in the Libertadores Cup zone, is 7 points, and the gap to Cuiaba, in the relegation zone, is 6 points. Santos' home statistics are 9th in the division, with 18 points from 10 games, +5=3-2, and 16:8 goal difference.
In their last ten games, Fluminense has nine wins and one draw. Clearly, the Tricolours are in excellent form and on their way to Santos for the points. However, in midweek, the Tricolours had a difficult match against Fortaleza in the first quarter-final (a win for Fluminense with a score of 1:0). And before that, a draw against Sao Paulo and victories over Bragantino and Goias. The results are excellent. Before the reporting game, the Tricolores are in the third position with an asset of 34 points and 8 points behind the leading Palmeiras. It's unlikely they are serious about the title, but they won't give up their position in the top 4. The away statistics for Fluminense are second only to Palmeiras, +4=3-2, 11:9 goal difference.
Expert Betting Tips
On the one hand, Fluminense hasn't been playing well in Santos lately, but on the other hand, the Tricolores are in great form and are not going to give up. In addition, they have excellent away statistics and rarely lose on the road. By the way, Santos also rarely concedes on home soil. We wouldn't be surprised if the game ended in a draw. As for the total, we don't expect a very productive outcome.
