Prediction: Santos vs Corinthians – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

After winning four Campeonato Brasileiro games last week, Santos welcome midfield colleagues Corinthians on Sunday at the Estadio Urbano Caldeira.

Sao Paulo’s rivals are only separated by two points in Serie A and are looking to win to battle for Copa Libertadores qualifications at the end of the season.


Prediction for this match

After Santos beat fourth division Juazeirense 4-0 in the first leg of the first leg of the Copa do Brasil last week, it might come as no surprise that Santos took his foot off the gas in the second leg, but a 2-0 defeat at such low levels Thursday’s opponent was another unwanted turnaround.

Before Peixe defeated the bottom of the table Chapecoense last weekend, he had only won one of the previous six league games and will be eighth at the Classico Alvinegro on Sunday.

The clubs have faced each other four times in Brasileiro and Paulista since early last year, but Santos won only one of those games and lost twice – including the 2-1 home defeat in April.

The team that is looked after by a former Corinthians player Fernando Diniz are clearly in transition after reaching the delayed final of the 2020 Copa Libertadores but losing to local rivals Palmeiras after a devastating stoppage goal. Afterwards head coach Cuca announced his departure and Argentine tactician Ariel Holan was hired in his place but did not last long.

Now the current coach Diniz can look forward to the upcoming quarter-finals in both the Copa Sudamericana and the Copa do Brasil and would therefore like to build a winning streak in the league before turning back to the knockout competitions.

Lyon coach Sylvinho gets a little excited on July 28, 2019

Corinthians was flattened by the unstoppable Flamengo last time in the league and has lost three of their last four games and dropped to 11th place behind Santos in Serie A.

As they have been largely inconsistent throughout the 2021 season so far, the former Lyon coach has Sylvinho – whose failed tenure at the French club ended quickly and shamefully – is under increasing pressure to improve performance and results.

Under the former Arsenal full-back, Corinthians appear to have focused on limiting the number of chances for the opposition but have only scored more than one goal in a game themselves. The Timao have failed to hit the net on a regular basis and no team above them in the table has scored fewer than their meager goals from 12 league goals.

By the time Flamengo won 3-1 in the Neo Quimica Arena, they hadn’t lost more than one goal, so there was little thrill.

Interest in the cup competitions has long since died down too, so Sylvinho has no excuse for not giving his players any ideas as he has had a lot of time on the training ground in recent weeks. The club’s increasingly impatient fans certainly hope that the man who represented them 136 times at the beginning of his playing career will soon find a recipe for success.

Kaio Jorge von Santos will celebrate his third goal on June 6, 2021

Santos prodigy Kaio Jorge traveled to Turin to sign for Italian giant Juventus, so he played his last game for the club.

Joint top scorer Marinho but returns from suspension on Sunday, so should come straight back to the team, but long-term injuries Jobson and John stay on the sidelines.

The hosts coach Fernando Diniz is likely to return to a much more familiar XI after making a number of changes for the mid-week cup loss Marcos Leonardo Favorite to re-lead the attack after Kaio Jorge’s departure.

Corinthians meanwhile has to do without a substitute striker Gabriel Pereira (Thigh), plus two younger players recovering from ACL injuries – Ruan Oliveira and Gustavo Mantuan.

As always, Brazil’s goalkeeper Cassio will lead the team behind Sylvinho’s favorite back four with seasoned striker Yo – with four ligators so far – starting in a single role at the front.

Santos possible starting line-up:
Paulo; Madson, Felipe, Kaiky, Jonathan; Camacho, Mota; Braga, Sanchez, Marinho; Leonardo

Corinthians possible starting line-up:
Cassio; Fagner, Victor, Gil, Santos; Cantillo, Gabriel; Gustavo, Roni, Adson; Yo

Probability: Santos 1-1 Corinthians

Santos are far from top form but are still favorites for this Sao Paulo derby and will have the task of taking the initiative. However, in the deplorable absence of Kaio Jorge, they certainly have fewer opportunities in attack, so they may struggle to beat their local rival.

Despite losing three goals to the fearless Flamengo last time around, the Corinthians still have one of the better defensive records in the league.
