Brazil Serie A : Santos - Goias
Goias lost 3-0 at leaders Corinthians and Santos were edged out 1-0 at Gremio, continuing their away day woes.
Not an awful lot to add really. Trips to Corinthians and Santos are tough for anyone, let alone back to back inside three days and should be too much for one of the poorer sides in the league, especially when they will be facing a home side desperate to claim back their hard earned top 4 ranking. Santos' road form leaves a lot to be desired, but they are 12-2-1 on home soil and have, incredibly, scored at least three goals in their last seven home starts and have averaged 2.47 per game in all league home games.The hosts are without a couple of suspended players, including 8 goal teenage striker Gabriel, but they still have massive offensive threat, not least through Serie A's top scorer Ricardo Oliveira (see below) and their absences mean that we get a decent quote today and with huge motivation, I cannot see Goias stalling the Copa Libertadores push from Santos, who have named a squad with only three points in mind..
Santos:Vanderlei , Vladimir, Daniel Guedes, Zeca , Chiquinho, Werley, Leonardo , Paulo Ricardo, Renato, Thiago Maia, Lucas Lima, Marquinhos Gabriel, Leandrinho, Serginho, Ledesma, Vitor Bueno , Léo Cittadini, Ricardo Oliveira, Geuvânio, Neto Berola, Leandro, Nilson, Marquinhos.
