Santo Andre vs Santos by Sors
The hosts perform relatively well in their first season in the top level of this tournament since 2011, as Santo Andre sits on third position in Group C, with eleven points after ten rounds (2-5-3 13/16).
It’s obvious that team’s Achilles heel is in defense, as Santo Andre conceded a total of 16 goals in the previous ten rounds and two or more goals in three of its previous four games this month.
On the other hand, these defensive problems have been partly compensated by good efficiency in attack, as the hosts have scored a total of eight goals in their previous four games in March, four of them in two games at Estadio Bruno Jose Daniel against Botafogo Ribeirao Preto (1-1) and Ponte Preta (3-3).Henan Faria da Silveira (f / 8+5) is in red hot form lately, as the 29-year-old striker scored five goals in the last three games of his team.
Leonardo (d / 9+2) is back in the squad after serving a one-match ban, so Sergio Soares has almost a full squad to choose from, with the exception of Edmilson (f / 7+1), who is injured.
Santos is on 1st position in Group D, with sixteen points after ten rounds (5-1-4 19/12), but with only two-point advantage over the third team in the standings (Mirassol), which means that the guests need at least four points from the last two rounds.
Santos is a team with a powerful attack in Lucas Lima (midfielder / 2 goals), Rafael Longuine (midfielder / 2 goals), Vitor Bueno (midfielder / 4 goals), Jonathan Copete (forward / 1 goal), Ricardo Oliveira (forward / 2 goals), Bruno Henrique (forward / 3 goals) and Rodrigao (forward / 3 goals), thanks to whose efforts the guests have scored a total of 19 goals in the previous ten rounds, six of them in their last two visits to Sao Bernardo (4-1) and Sao Bento on Wednesday (2-0).At the same time, the guests managed to keep clean sheet in only four of their previous twelve competitive games this season.
Zeca (d / 10+0), Gustavo Henrique (d / 0+0), Caju (d / 0+0) and Luiz Felipe (d / 0+0) will miss this match due to injuries.
I expect more than two goals in this match between the teams of Santo Andre and Santos.
