THE Santos will face or Guild, this Wednesday, at 16h, for the 34th round of the Brazilian championship, without two of its main players. Marinho and Sotelto were injured during the decision of the Liberators cup, in which the Palm Trees was the big winner. Examinations found that a sprain caused edema in the medial collateral ligament of the left ankle of Marine, While Soteldo suffers from pain in the adductor muscle of the right thigh. The Santos delegation traveled this Tuesday, 2, to the South, after the training. The game will take place in Porto Alegre (RS).
Coach Cuca should form the team with: John; Pará, Laércio, Luan Peres and Felipe Jonatan; Alison, Sandry and Lucas Braga; Madson (Jean Mota), Kaio Jorge and Arthur Gomes. With the defeat to Palmeiras, Santos was without guaranteed place in the next Libertadores. The team is in 11th place in the table, with the same 45 points from Athletico-PR (8th place), Ceará (9th), Corinthians (10th) and Atlético-GO (12th). There are six games left for Santos FC. As the Brazilian football calendar does not allow us to celebrate the achievements or regret the losses too much, Santos, if they want to dream of the fourth Libertadores title next season, will need to show a reaction just over 96 hours after the painful defeat, with a goal in the 53rd minute of the second half, against Palmeiras.
