Sao Paulo vs. Santos (Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A) 4/7/2013
July 4, 2013 by Kimi Nguyen on Other Leagues
Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A continues on a high note after Brazil’s glorious campaign in Confederations Cup. Clubs are having to both maintain form AND get over the woe of players drain to Europe – as Summer transfer season just started.
Por favor! You can’t score here.
Sao Paulo suffered from the busy schedule (5 matches/3 week) – unable to win for the last 3 games – home and away. What’s worse, they scored only 1 goal in those 3 matches. However, Sao Paulo‘s defence has been efficient – having conceded only 3 goals for the season and allowed maximum 1 goal/match. You probably won’t be surprised if you know world-beater Lucio led Sao Paulo‘s defence in all 5 matches.
Santos has been coping with life after Neymar in a struggling fashion. Santos lost 2 and drawn 1 in the first 3 matches without Neymar. They regained balance after a 1-0 win over Atletico Mineiro at home. It’s also interesting to note that they have scored 1 goal in each of the last 4 matches. Santos lost on both away fixtures this season. This is the reason why Santos is desparately looking to bring home Robinho, who is capable of ending Santos’ goal drought.
Last year, Neymar single-handedly won the game vs. Sao Paulo by a hattrick.

BETEGY had a RECOMMENDED BET on 1X2 HOME WIN for Sao Paulo, as Santos continues to struggle in Away matches.
BETEGY‘s prediction suggest 62% that Sao Paulo will Win To Nil if their defence continued superb performance this weekend. Neymar-less Santos will find it hard to find a goal. And by ‘a goal’, we mean a goal MAX.
