Santos vs Internacional Prediction and Betting Tips | June 3, 2023

Botafogo v Internacional - Brasileirao 2022
Santos take on Internacional in the Brasileiro Serie A on Saturday.

With disappointment from their Copa do Brasil exit still lingering in the air, Santos take on Internacional in round nine of the Brasileiro Serie A on Saturday (June 3).

Santos suffered a Round-of-16 exit from the Copa de Brasil on Wednesday when they were beaten on penalties by Bahia following a 1-1 aggregate draw. Odair Hellmann’s side have lost their last three games across competitions, including a 2-0 defeat at Red Bull Bragantino in the Serie A on May 28.

However, Santos now return home, where they're unbeaten this year, with their last defeat at the Estadio Urbano Caldeira coming on November 13, when they lost 2-0 to Fortaleza.

Meanwhile, Internacional picked up a third win on the spin in midweek when they beat America Mineiro on penalties to reach the Copa do Brasil quarterfinals. Mano Menezes’ side now turn their attention to the Serie A, where they picked up a 2-0 victory over Bahia on May 28 to snap their four-match losing streak.

With ten points from eight games, Internacional are 13th in the league table, one point and one place behind Santos.
