Much is alleged in regards to the attacking DNA of Santos, however in the championship of Brazil, the crew is characterised by a great defensive system. Peyche solely conceded extra goals than the chief Palmeiras and made a dependable weapon.
With 20 goals conceded in 23 video games, Santos are, alongside Flamengo, the second finest protection in Brazil. Palmeiras has solely scored 15 and additionally has the very best assault with 38 goals. Verdao has 49 factors and is eight forward of the vice-leader Fluminense.
Santos has already carried out properly defensively alongside Fabian Bustas and has averaged one aim conceded per match. The largest drawback in the work of the previous coach was the assault. With Lisca, the defensive efficiency is even higher.
In 5 video games below Liska, Santos conceded simply 4 goals: two in opposition to Fluminense, one in opposition to Caritiba, one in opposition to América MG and none in opposition to Fortaleza and São Paulo. The common is now 0.8 goals conceded per match. In assault, the Lisca facet additionally want enchancment and scored simply 5 goals in the interval: a median of 1 each 90 minutes. Peixe is eighth in the Brasileirão with 33 factors.
beneath, UOL Esporte provides some the reason why Santos stand out defensively in the Brazilian Championship:
Santos create fewer probabilities for his or her opponents, however when the ball does come in, it is onerous to beat Joao Paulo. The goalkeeper maintains a superb part and not often fails. Against São Paulo final Sunday (21), the opposition rose in the second half and settled on the shirt 34. João Paulo has 80 saves in the Brasileirão, together with 18 troublesome ones. And no critical defensive errors, in response to Sofascore.
a robust duet
Maicon (33) and Eduardo Bauermann (26) are more and more intertwined in the Santos protection. With each on the pitch, Peixe has conceded 14 goals in 19 video games and is clear in six matches. Among all of the athletes of the championship, Bauerman leads the best way in hits (99).
Change of labeling
Under the command of Liska, Santos started to attain in zones and now not has particular person pursuits. Unlike Bust, who “dipped” midfielder Rodrigo Fernandez as a 3rd defender, Liska locations the Uruguayan in entrance of the defenders and has two midfielders, one on either side of the pitch.
Another optimistic level of the Lisca system is the assistance of the wingers. With Lucas Barbosa (Lucas Braga) and now Sateldo marking reverse sides together with the midfielders, Santos’ wings are extra protected. That’s why Angelo, who’s 17 years outdated and has some tactical points, just isn’t a starter.
robust aerial sport
Since Liska took over, Santos have conceded only one aim, a header (from Leo Gamalho in opposition to Coritiba). And none of the usual, penalty or nook kicks. Peixe has suffered in this fashion at different instances of the season and is now exhibiting himself to be robust from above.
Santos will discover it troublesome to keep up a great defensive part in opposition to Cuiaba subsequent Sunday (28) in the twenty fourth spherical of the Brazilian Championship on the Arena Pantanal. Coxswain Rodrigo Fernandez is disqualified for his third yellow card.
The seemingly substitute is Camacho, who has extra offensive attributes. Vinicius Baleiro, who can also be a watchdog, was not even on the bench in opposition to Sao Paulo. The different to Lisk is the choice of Luis Felipe in a three-back scheme.
