Santos vs Luverdense Soccer Prediction Today
The Fish was once again in turmoil after being run over by Grêmio on Sunday, May 6. In match for the fourth round of the Brazilian Championship, the alvinegro was thrashed by 5 to 1, in Porto Alegre. It was his third loss in the last four games.
Once again the posture deemed too defensive adopted by coach Jair Ventura Filho was chosen by fans and analysts as a scapegoat for the vexatious defeat. With three points (one win and two draws), Santos fell to the sixteenth place in the Brasileirão, the first out of the relegation zone.
He did, however, play less than most of his rivals. The match against Vasco, for the third round, was postponed to July after the Russian World Cup 2018.
The failure in the capital of the state of Rio Grande do Sul has even brought about relationship problems among athletes. Goalkeeper Wanderley and midfielder Alisson discussed during the match. The latter may not even act before the Luverdense. You did not participate in the training by claiming muscle aches and will probably get a break.
However, Jair Ventura must win three reinforcements. The first of them is the right-back Victor Ferraz, who had been away since January, when he suffered a shoulder injury. He has been released by the medical department and will likely be among the starters. The other two are for the midfield. Recovered from injury, Renato and Vecchio returned to training normally with the group.
Thus, the likely team for the match is Vanderlei; Victor Ferraz, Lucas Veríssimo, David Braz and Dodo; Alison (Renato); Léo Cittadini and Jean Mota; Eduardo Sasha, Gabigol and Rodrygo.
Luverdense were relegated in Serie B in the 2017 season. But they secured the right to play in the Copa do Brasil from the round of 16 to win the Green Cup title. By 2018, however, there has been no sign of improvement. On the contrary.
On Sunday, for Serie C, was defeated on Sunday, May 6, by Ypiranga, Rio Grande do Sul, by 1 to 0. In the last seven matches, counted all competitions, the Algarve had only one victory.
In the Third Division, which is the priority of the season, is under threat of further relegation. It has three points (one win and three losses). It occupies the eighth place in group B. it is the first position outside the relegation zone. However, both Tupi and Joinville, who are in the last two places, have the same score as the Mato Grosso team. They only lose when the tiebreaker criteria are used.
This is, of course, a beginning of dispute. The distance to Cuiabá Esporte, its local rival, who is fourth placed and closes the qualifying zone for the C Series playoffs is only four points.
