Santos gets Botafogo on Wednesday, at 9 am, at Villa Belmiro, low and pessimistic about the future at the Brazilian championship. If there was enthusiasm before the climate due to the proximity of the G6 rotator, it is now uncertain in the air about the final part of the season. In tenth place, parked at 46 points and with four consecutive losses, a week of fish was different in CT King Peleu.
No press conference was held in two days preparing for the home game, valid for the 36th round. Journalists could only follow the re-appearance of the group on Monday, when they were only booked in the field for training games against a team under 20 years. Before the departure, there was no heating for the pictures. The speaker was President Jose Carlos Peres. In interviews with Radio Globo and Bandeirantes, the manager had to explain how he would deal with coach Cuca, whose durability in 2019 is quite unclear. There was also a question about the poor performance of the team in the last games. He tried to find the answers, but he was suffering to find them.
In the meantime, in the privacy of CT King Pele, Cuca organized a team on Wednesday for the field, aware of not only six penalties for the game, but also the need not to end the year, leaving a bad impression on the fans. After a match against Botafogo, the team still plays another match at Villa Belmiro against Atletico-MG on Saturday.
Brian Ruiz, Carlos Sanchez and Derlis Gonzalez do not act because they have chosen Costa Rica, Uruguay and Paraguay for their Fifa date. Bruno Henrikue was suspended. Lucas Verissimo still recovers from sprawling right knee, and Guilherme Nunes suffers from pain from an earthquake in the basin.
The likely scale of the fish is: Vanderlei; Victor Ferraz, Luiz Felipe, Gustavo Henrikue and Dodo; Alison, Diego Pituca and Rodrigo; Arthur Gomes (Sasha), Gabigol and Copete (Sasha).
