Chapecoense SC vs Santos FC Preview 01/08/2021
On Sunday night, struggling Chapecoense host Santos at the Arena Conda, as the home side looks to end a terrible run of form in Serie A.
Chapecoense have endured a nightmare campaign, as they are currently bottom of the Serie A table, having failed to win any of their 13 league outings.
A 1-0 defeat against Juventude was their sixth straight league in Serie A. Despite their struggles, Jair Ventura’s team has scored at least two goals in five of their last eight league matches. Their goal scoring record has contributed to five of their last eight league matches producing over 2.5 goals.
Chapecoense are on a run of six home games without a victory in the Brazilian top-flight, having suffered five defeats, including losing their last four league matches on home soil. They have also conceded at least two goals in four of their previous six home games in Serie A.
Santos have enjoyed mixed fortunes so far this season and currently sit 12th place in the table, occupying the final Copa Sudamericana place.
However, the visitors are also just five points clear of the relegation zone.
A 1-0 home defeat against Atletico Goianiense last time out means that Santos have won just one of their last six Serie A games. Despite their recent inconsistent results, the visitors have scored at least two goals in six of their previous nine league matches.
Santos have failed to win in 11 Serie A away games, while also conceding at least two goals in six of their last seven matches on their travels, including their last four league games on the road.
The visitors have won the last two meetings with Chapecoense and will be hoping to continue that good run in this clash. PlusBet.net predicts that they will record another victory in a high-scoring encounter.
1 – 2
