With the tie, Santos moved up to 13th place, with 23 points gained. In the next round, Peixe will face Ceará, on Saturday, at Arena Castelão. Before, on Tuesday, Santos host Athlético-PR in the return game of the quarterfinals of the Copa do Brasil – as they lost 1-0 in the first leg, the team needs to win by two or more goals difference in Vila Belmiro to advance . If I win by simple difference, the decision will be on penalties.
>> PERFORMANCE: In Carille’s debut, Santos has a discreet performance
With Fábio Carille on the bench after just two practices, Santos had an uncreative first half, with little marking on the edge of the area and no submissions. Bahia, in turn, had the best chances after 25 minutes. In the first, on a counterattack, Gilberto received a free kick in the area, but played weakly on João Paulo’s exit and defender Robson Reis saved Peixe.
On minute 26, Isnaldo kicked from the edge of the area and João Paulo palmed, but the referee only scored a goal kick. Two minutes later, Rodallega shot from the edge of the area and the goalkeeper saved.
Santos took the first shot seven minutes into the second half. Carlos Sánchez took a free kick from the left and goalkeeper Mateus Claus made a great save to save Bahia.
On minute 14, Gabriel Pirani crossed a low cross from the right, Marcos Guilherme caught it first and the ball skimmed the left post of goalkeeper Mateus Claus.
At 17, forward Marinho entered Marcos Guilherme’s vacancy and returned to the pitch after a month and a half. The player tried the plays on the right side, but could not win the mark.
Until the end of the game, despite staying with the ball longer, Santos failed to create great chances of goal.
