Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Santos v Olimpia match are shown here - as well as the best betting odds.
Santos head into this match after a 2-2 Série A stalemate versus São Paulo.
In that game, Santos managed 52% possession and 4 shots on goal with 2 of them on target. For Santos, the goals were scored by Madson (30') and Marinho (75'). On the other side, São Paulo got 7 attempts on goal with 3 on target. Gabriel Sara (8', 39') was the scorer for São Paulo.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that Santos have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Peixe have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 8 goals during that time.
Olimpia go into this game following a 2-1 Copa Libertadores win with the eclipse of Defensa y Justicia in their previous outing.
The numbers tell their own story, and Olimpia have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 10 goals in all. In defence, Olimpia have some weaknesses to address. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be continued into this next game, of course.
