Santos is 6th on the table with 11 points from seven played matches. They are three points behind the league leader, Bragantino. Santos is playing well lately. They are without a loss in the previous three games. In the last round, Santos won 2-0 at home against Atletico MG. That match was fairly even in the first half. The home side played better in the second half, so they secured all three points with two goals from Jean Mota and Marcos Guilherme.
Sport Recife are 15th on the table with five points. They are without a win in the previous three matches. In the last game, Sport Recife played 0-0 at home against Cuiaba. Surprisingly, guests were a better team in that match, so Sport Recife can be happy with one point.
The game between Santos and Sport Recife should be low-scoring, so under 2.5 goals should be the best bet for this tie. My correct score prediction is a 2-0 win for the home side.
Prediction:Both teams to score.
