Preview: Cuiaba vs. Santos

Two teams sitting just about the Brasileiro relegation zone will meet on Sunday when Cuiaba host Santos in their latest league match.

Both teams failed to pick up a victory in their most recent outings, therefore this weekend will act as a perfect opportunity to immediately get themselves back on track.

Cuiaba are currently sat 16th in the league table with just a single point keeping them out of the relegation zone which puts plenty of pressure on the team this weekend.

However, after consecutive matches without a victory there is a need for improvement when it comes to this particular fixture.

Cuiaba failed to score in either of those matches which is a concern for the team, and that has been a problem throughout the entire campaign

So far they have managed to score just nine goals across 12 games with no team in the Brasileiro having found the back of the net fewer times.

Antonio Oliveira’s men have also been unable to win a single match at home this season which does not bring a lot of confidence when it comes to this particular fixture.

The visitors are having their own difficulties this season as they are only a single point above their opponents in the table, and they could also find themselves in the relegation zone with a defeat on Sunday.

Paulo Turra’s men have gone 11 matches in a row without a win in all competitions, and that is a run of form that they will need to turn around sooner rather than later.

Away from home Santos have struggled as they have won just a single match, and much like Cuiaba it has been a lack of goals that have caused problems for them.

Santos have found the back of the net just twice on the road this season, with plenty of pressure on the attackers heading into this weekend to try and turn their fortunes around.

Their most recent outing led to a goalless draw in the Copa Sudamericana which showcased their ability to keep a clean sheet, but the lack of goals is still something that has to be dealt with.
