saints and Atletico-PR face each other this Tuesday, for the 28th round of the Brazilian championship. The game is scheduled to start at 21:00 (Brasília time) on the Vila Belmiro lawn.
Santos led by interim Orlando Ribeiro is coming off a loss to Palmeiras in the last round by the minimum score. Despite the setback, the team managed to compete against the leader of the Brazilian Championship at Allianz Parque.
Santos’ recent results, however, are not encouraging. The team comes from four games without a win, with three defeats and a draw. Peixe’s last triumph took place over a month ago, in the classic against São Paulo, 1-0, with a goal from Lucas Braga.
Santos is in 12th place in the Brasileirão, with 34 points conquered and, if it wins, it has a chance to paste in the G-8 of the competition.
For the game against Hurricane, Santos will not have Rodrigo Fernández (transition of partial injury to the rectus femoris muscle of the right thigh) and Soteldo (called up for the Venezuelan national team at FIFA Data).
Athletico-PR, in turn, seeks to continue with the good campaign in the Brazilian Championship in this interval until the dispute of the final of the Copa Libertadores, against Flamengo.
The team comes from two draws in the national league and is in sixth place, with 44 points, the same score as Corinthians, fifth place. The team led by Luiz Felipe Scolari seeks to reach the G-4 of the Brasileirão, which has Flamengo as the last member, with 45 points.
For the match, Athletico-PR will not have Cannobio, summoned to defend Uruguay on FIFA Data. In addition to him, left-back Abner suffered a sprained ankle during the week and is also short. Pedrinho, the most likely to replace him, is suspended for accumulating yellow cards.
Another who should not enter the field is defender Pedro Henrique, ex-Corinthians. The player still recovers from a blow and must be preserved by Felipão.
In the first round, Athletico-PR and Santos drew 2-2 at Arena da Baixada. Marcos Leonardo scored twice for Peixe, while Pablo and Léo Baptistão (against) scored for Hurricane.
