Santos has a great moment in the Brazilian championship, as he comes from two consecutive victories and did not suffer any goal in that period, accumulating only one defeat in the last sixteen games. The team is motivated, having returned to the victories away from home in the competition, in a very balanced match against rival Palmeiras. In that game, he had only 38% possession and finished half the time of the rival, but presented opportunism and achieved the victory. The club stands out for having a very consistent defense away from home, but at the same time has one of the worst attacks in that condition. One of the strengths of the team is the pass quality, since it is the fifth team that misses the least passing in the championship. The couple Lucas Veríssimo and David Braz have stood out in the last days.
