Santos opened 2-0 over Red Bull Bragantino, in Vila Belmiro, on Saturday night (18), but ended up giving the draw to the visiting team. Leo Baptistão scored both goals for Peixe in the match, both in the first half. With the stumble at home for the 13th round, the Club will sleep in fifth place, but may lose positions this Sunday (19).

The first good chance of the game came from Massa Bruta, with Hyoran, in the eighth minute. But, the attacking midfielder stopped in great defense of João Paulo. At 16′, Baptistão took advantage of the area in the area after a good move by Lucas Braga on the right, and opened the scoring. At 35′, in a well-crafted play by the Santos team, Marcos Leonardo received Bruno Oliveira, passed the opposing goalkeeper and put the ball at the feet of Leo Baptistão, who went to the nets again.

Still in the first half, already at 45′, Hyoran took advantage of it in the area, after Aderlan’s cross. Braga came back better for the match and went up, until reaching the tie, which came at 25′ of the final stage: Luan Cândido dominated the ball on the left and finished from outside the area, hitting João Paulo’s angle. The visitors were still close to the turnaround, with Artur and Luan Cândido again. But João Paulo avoided and kept the score 2-2. Santos came out of the clash in trouble with the referee.

Coach Fabián Bustos was sent off during the second half, and after the final whistle, defender Eduardo Bauermann regretted the result and did not spare criticism for the performance of the match referee. “I see the team evolving, but we ended up not winning in the details. We opened 2-0 and the game was controlled, but a blunder at the end of the first half we took the goal. Afterwards, Luan Cândido was very happy in the game. Our margin of mistake is over and so is our patience. It’s not the first time that the referee comes here and spoils the game, leaves everyone insecure with a card. We played well, but we need to concentrate. I see that our team is prepared for the classic and I’m sure we will play great games and we will come out with a result in both games”, commented the defender.
