Reason For Fluminense vs Santos Betting Tips
Wednesday’s Brazilian Serie A action sees under-fire Santos making the trip to face Fluminense. The hosts will be looking to take advantage of their visitor’s vulnerable state in order to claim the three points.
With a thin squad, it was expected that Fluminense would begin to struggle in this hectic period of the Brazilian calendar and so it has proved, with Tricolor arriving having lost 3 games in a row.
Nonetheless, after a strong start to the season, Abel Braga’s men remain on the fringes of the top half and will be looking to return to winning ways and confidence is certainly high in achieving that, despite recent poor form. Given the side have won 4 of their last 6 home matches, a figure that should actually read 4 from 5 when you consider their derby with Flamengo was moved to Brasilia, making this match a welcome return to playing in front of the home crowd.
Meanwhile, the heat is reaching unbearable levels in Santos’ ranks and at the time of writing, rumours are swirling around boss Jair Ventura’s future, with Fluminense’s boss Braga himself linked as being a possible replacement.
Nonetheless, for now Ventura is in control but if he’s not sacked before kick-off, a poor result will almost certainly seal his fate, something that looks a given taking into account the fact that Peixe have lost 6 of their last 7 away games. Currently just above the relegation zone, even Santos’ typically strong home form is faltering at the moment, after losing 2-1 to Internacional at the weekend and thus, it’s fair to say morale in travelling ranks is at rock bottom.
All things considered, if Fluminense can mount some energy in what is the final game prior to Serie A going on break for the World Cup, then they should win the match comfortably.
Santos have shown no resolve whatsoever on the road in recent months and with the situation so volatile at the club right now, it’s hard to see how those taking to the field can have prepared for the game in a normal manner. Typically powerful as hosts, Fluminense should be able to claim the 3 points here and we’re more than happy to back them to do so, with a 1-0 margin of victory on the cards.
Fluminense possible starting XI: Cesar; Gilberto, Chaves, Gum, Peres, Vitor; Richard, Jadson, Douglas; Sornoza, Pedro.
Santos possible starting XI: Vanderlei; Ferraz, Henrique, Braz, Dodo; Pituca, Renato; Mota, Sasha, Gabriel, Rodrygo.
