SNTS vs CRA Dream11: Santos have been one of the most successful sides in the Brazilia Serie A, with 10 league titles to their names. However, it’s been 16 years since Santos last had their hands on the title. Their start to the new season has been a poor one too, as they were on the receiving end of a 3-0 defeat to Bahia. Ceara, on the other hand, have kicked off their campaign in style, as they beat Gremio 3-2 in what was an enthralling affair. They will take plenty of confidence from that result and would be eager to build further momentum going ahead. With that being said, here is the SNTS vs CRA Dream 11 Prediction for the upcoming contest.
