Reason For Santos vs Flamengo Betting Tips

  • Whilst they may not be league champions, currently 2nd placed and having 71 points from 37 games ranks as pretty good going for Santos.
  • The hosts are unbeaten in 8 home matches, winning 7 and will be looking to end 2019 on a high.
  • Copa Libertadores champions and a huge 19 points clear at the top of Serie A, Flamengo have been the best team in South America this year.
  • However, with the Club World Cup approaching, distraction could kick in on Sunday and Jorge Jesus’ could opt to rest his star performers

Santos looking for one more big home performance

Whilst Santos have nothing of real note left to play for on Sunday, they’ll still be hungry for a win. The chance to strike down the champions in front of the home crowd is an appealing prospect and doing so would also ensure they finish ahead of bitter rivals Palmeiras in 2nd.

Typically excellent on home turf, Jorge Sampaoli’s troops can be highly confident in giving the champions a run for their money. Indeed, they’ve dropped just 2 points from their last 8 home fixtures and having plunged home an average of 2.25 goals a game in the process, they’ll certainly give the visitors plenty to think about

Flamengo outstanding; but distracted

Flamengo have been utterly fantastic since Jorge Jesus’ came in early on in the season and are by far and away the best side in South America. In the 27 games Jesus has been in charge of in Serie A, Flamengo have won a staggering 22 times, losing just once and the 73 points he’s collected alone would still have Mengao top of the standings.

Nonetheless, this trip to Santos is a tough one for Flamengo and given the intensity that the hosts typically play at, resting players could be an idea of real appeal with the Club World Cup approaching. Challenging for said competition is of huge importance for Flamengo and thus, it does seem as though this fairly meaningless last game could take a backseat.
