There’s just the one tip from Brazil tonight as an unusually quiet Sunday in all of the state leagues are struggling to produce anything of real value apart from the one bet I’ve picked out, I will also be back in midweek with bets on Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday and next Sunday.
Santos vs Paulista (7PM)
After an awful performance by Santos last week away to Linense where they were out played all game before snatching a late 2-2 draw after a controversial Mirrales penalty Santos will host bottom half side Paulista. Santos are traditionally excellent at home in this competition and with the big guns Neymar, Arouca and Montillo coming back into the side I expect that to continue. After a very poor midweek performance on international duty Neymar and Arouca will be eager to get back onto the field and prove the critics wrong. Paulista are yet to play any top quality sides but have still only won the one game and with an average squad age of just 24 they’ll struggle against a top side like Santos. Although they’re inexperienced one thing the Paulista players will do is work hard and chase everything which should result in them getting a goal against a very poor Santos defence. Given all the factors with both teams I think Santos should win this game as well as scoring a few goals in the process.
Santos vs Paulista – Santos win and over 2.5 match goals (1.80 Bet365)
