On Wednesday, Santos hosts São Caetano at Vila Belmiro, in play valid for the 7th round of the São Paulo championship. Santos does not want to lose points for modest teams in the interior and goes after the victory, while visitors will be happy with a draw. It is important to remember that the ABC team is fighting seriously against the decline.
The tie with the Railway in the last round was not the result expected by Santos, as it did not manage to maintain the leadership of his group, which is something that he is fighting at the moment. Therefore, in this round nothing more than the three points are of interest to him and from the beginning of the duel he will try to show his strength so as not to be surprised again.
Against the São Caetano is the big favorite to beat the game, as it has a better template in terms of technical quality and will face a more modest team that is struggling to avoid relegation. If you achieve a positive performance you must add the three points naturally and without taking any risks, but you know that otherwise you may be surprised by the modest visitors.
The days are passing in the São Paulo championship and the situation of São Caetano is still very critical, because if the competition ends today would be returning to the second division state. There was already a change of coach, so it is expected that an evolution can happen, being that at present it is practically an obligation to score points. In fact, it is practically an obligation to win to try a reaction in the state championship.
The fact of facing one of the biggest teams in the state will make your life much more complicated and you know that in order to achieve a good result you will need to present a football that has not yet been seen in this championship. The São Caetano will need to have a very well organized defense in the field, a midfield that knows how to work the ball and serve the strikers well, being that the latter can not waste the chances of scoring they have. It is true that a draw would not be a bad result, but for the moment in such a way that the ABC is living what really matters is a victory.
PREDICTION: Under 2.5 goals @ 1.80
