Juventude Vs Santos Tips and Prediction
Eduardo Baptista has yet to find a solution to his team’s problems, as they only managed two shots on target in a 2-0 loss to Corinthians this past weekend.
They now have the most goals surrendered (19) in the league and are battling to keep a firm shape and close down those openings in the final third.
When you look at the final results, it doesn’t seem to matter whether they are at home or away, as a lack of consistency from one match to the next has proven to be their undoing.
Juve has won four of their previous seven domestic meetings with Santos, including a 3-0 victory in this very match last year.
The Southern Brazilians are fully to blame for their current predicament, since they have lost multiple chances to ascend the Brasileiro table, dropping nine points from winning places in 2022.
Santos had four draws in their last five league games, the most recent of which occurred on Saturday when they drew 1-1 with defending Brazilian champions Atletico Mineiro after scoring a late equalizer.
Fabian Bustos has molded them into a well-drilled, physically fit team that seldom gets caught out of position, making them a difficult side to get through tactically.
Santos has only allowed multiple goals twice this domestic season, but they have failed to find consistent quality in the final third, scoring one goal or less in all but two of their domestic matches since May.
Santastico managed to pick up some points on Saturday for the first game in the 2022 Brasileiro Serie A season after surrendering first, drawing the league’s best defensive unit last year.
Since Bustos came over, all of the players have put in a relentless effort and work rate, but there is still work to be done technically.
While 10th place may appear to be a safe position, the margins are still razor-thin, with Peixe only four points above relegation, so another blunder may be expensive.
Santos and Juventude are now separated by nine places in the standings, and while the difference is only four points, Santos has more structure and organization than Juventude, thus we anticipate the visitors to struggle to break through Peixe’s defensive set-up.
