On Thursday, Santos will face Sport Recife at Urbano Caldeira Stadium in Brazil’s Serie A, with the two teams having had very different seasons thus far.
Santos is currently in sixth place in the league and has been in excellent form recently. In their last eight games in all competitions, Fernando Diniz’s team has only lost once. With a win over Sport Recife on Thursday, the Peixe might climb up to second place in the table.
Sport Recife, on the other hand, has had a shaky start to the season, winning just one league match thus far. Umberto Louzer’s team has lost six of their last ten games in all competitions, which is a poor record.
The Leao are currently in 15th place in the table, just one point above relegation.
Além da despedida do Vlad e da visita do Rayo, também tivemos muito treino nesta tarde no CT Rei Pelé. Amanhã tem Peixão! ⚪⚫— Santos Futebol Clube (@SantosFC) June 30, 2021
