Santos and Bragantino are placed eight and ninth in the table respectively after managing the same number of points (17) from 12 games so far in the league.
Santos and Bragantino will hope to climb the table as high as possible when they both face each other in the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A on Sunday. The two sides, currently occupying the mid-table positions, will look to add a bit of consistency to their game when they come head-to-head at the weekend. Santos and Bragantino are placed eight and ninth in the table respectively after managing the same number of points (17) from 12 games so far in the league.
The hosts did well to put their recent inconsistent run of results behind them when they defeated Juventude in their last game by a narrow margin. Prior to that, Santos have been extremely inconsistent, drawing and losing matches at regular interval. Hence, they will hope that their latest victory will give them a huge confidence boost ahead of the upcoming clash. Santos have won four, drew five and lost three of the 12 games they played in the league this season.
On the other hand, Bragantino’s form has neither been better. They have also largely been inconsistent, dropping frequent points along the way. The visitors beat Coritiba 4-2 in the last encounter to enter this match on a confident note. However, Bragantino were largely inconsistent before that game. Their record in the league is also similar to their next opponents, having won four, drawn five and lost thrice. Considering the inconsistent run of form of both sides, it will be difficult to call a winner on Sunday.
