FLUMINENSE VS SANTOS. Fluminense is sweating over the fitness of Hudson, but it appears safe to say that he will not be able to recover in time to face Santos in this game. In fact, the doctors have approximately given his return time to be December 2021.
SANTOS VS ATLETIC PR. Santos has a long list of injuries in their squad, and these include the likes of Raniel, Rafael Longuine, Alison, John Victor and Jobson. Needless to say, the home team will have to find replacements for all of these players.
SANTOS VS SPORT RECIFE. Santos is an excellent defensive team. They allowed only three goals in the last six matches in all competitions. Also, five of those six games went under 2.5 goals line. Santos will be without Sandry Santos and Jobson because of injuries, while John and Alison are questionable to get back.
GREMIO VS SANTOS. Gremio has quite a few of their players out with injuries. These include the likes of Maicon, Leonardo, Manuel, Brenno and Alisson. We think that the home team will find it very difficult to replace all these players at such short notice.
Head to head Checking on their prior head-to-head clashes going back to 03/07/2005 tells us that Santos have won 3 of them and Juventude 2, with the number of draws being 1. An aggregate of 17 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 9 from Peixe and 8 for Juve.
