Draw or The Strongest

League leaders in Bolivia, The Strongest seem to be heavily undervalued by the bookies in this match-up. A lot of signs are pointing that Santos may face some serious problems, but they are still expected to win with the odds of around 3/20. Being a part of the Brazilian Serie A doesn't explain this valuation, that's why we pick the bet that provides this great risk/reward ratio. Further in the article, we will cover more about why The Strongest can upset Santos.

Under 2.5 Goals

The hosts find themselves in a slum result-wise. Santos has lost 4 of its last 5 games and drawn the other one. Furthermore that 1-1 draw was the only match of the 5 in which Santos managed to find the net. Also, all of those matches have ended with less than 2.5 goals. In direct clashes between the two sides, 75% of the games have had less than 3 goals.

BTTS – Yes

Another bet with over 1/1 odds. The Strongest’s games, especially their league matches, produce a ton of goals. 7 of their last 10 have concluded with 4 or more goals. The Bolivian side sure knows how to score goals, however, Santos has failed to do so regularly in recent times. We believe that despite the Brazillian club’s bad form, it is completely capable of getting on the scoreboard against a lesser-ranked Bolivian opponent.

Santos vs The Strongest: All the important stats previewed

Here you can glance through some of the most important statistics for the game at hand.

How do the teams match up against each other?

The Hosts finished on the 8th spot in Serie A during the previous campaign, which is an achievement to be respected. However, it's obvious that Santos isn’t where it wants to be. The club has faced struggles getting back on track to the glorious days of 2019. The new league season will soon unfold, but until then, qualifying out of the Copa Libertadores group stage is a top priority.

The Strongest, on the other hand, missed out on winning the Bolivian Primera Division by a single point last season and will be looking to reclaim that spot. The Club is doing nicely in the new season so far, leading the table with a goal difference of 18-8 after 5 games. Realistically speaking, everyone should be aware of the fact that overall, the Brazilian league is on a higher level than the Bolivian. This makes it hard to judge which team has the advantage and just how big this advantage is.
