After last season rollercoster ride, Peixe will want a steadier run and a better place on the table. Despite a couple of surprisingly heavy defeats, the first months of 2019 have been slightly encouraging, as the team seems to have material enough for major improvement. Bringing the highly reputed Jorge Sampaoli to lead the team, this year, was a great move, and the Argentinean seems to have already installed a great dynamic of high pressing football and fast tempo attack. Last season’s biggest attacking references Gabigol and Bruno Henrique have joined rivals Flamengo; however, the wonderkid Rodrygo seems ready to have his definite affirmation, and his lightweight and pacey profile seems ideal for Sampaoli’s free-flowing attacking model. Cuevas joined in to provide some much needed creativity on the playmaking role. The very reliable Vanderlei in goal and the strong midfield formed by Pituca, Alison and Sanchez will provide some stability and identity on the transition from last season. Coach Sampaoli has repeatedly mentioned that the team is lacking a proper centre-forward. The attacking trio averages a height of 1.67m. The squad still seems vulnerable in terms of second choices, and they do have a few players highly prone to injuries.

Target


With the competent Sampaoli at the helm and most of last season’s backbone kept untouched, Santos has everything to make a challenge on the top-6 or even top-4 positions. Asking for the title seems too farfetched, though.

Season Review
2018

№10: Santos FC

It was a strange season for Peixe, this one. After the top-3 finishing in the previous two editions, and never been out of the top-half of the table in the last nine years, Santos found themselves in the awkward position of being on the bottom places of the table for a significant amount of time, in this 2018 season. Under Jair Ventura’s guidance, Santos had an awful start, accumulating six defeats in the first eight rounds. A robust victory in round 9 made Ventura survive some more weeks, but the two consecutive draws after the World Cup break saw him being replaced by Cuca, who led Palmeiras to 2016 title. After an bad start with three games without winning, Cuca finally drove Santos into a good second half of the season, taking them away from any danger of being relegated and even getting really close from a top-6 position, which seemed impossible when Cuca arrived at Vila Belmiro back in July. A series of six clean sheets was the evidence of Santos growing stability. The arrival of ‘Gringos’ Brian Ruiz, Derlis Gonzalez and particularly the industrious midfielder Carlos Sanchez had an immense impact, leading Santos to a great sequence of 28 points in 13 games. A series of bad injuries on crucial players (forcing Cuca into improvising in key areas) took Santos out of the race for continental places, as the final seven rounds were catastrophic: five defeats, one draw, one win. Despite the shaky season of the club, the striker Gabigol reencountered himself with his best form. After a couple of very disappointing seasons in Europe, Gabriel was back in Brazil to be the top goalscorer with 18 goals (5 away from competition). The Uruguayan Carlos Sanchez was absolutely instrumental in Santos recover after his arrival in August. Vanderlei was once again one of the best goalkeepers in the country, and the wonderkid Rodrygo consolidated an irrevocable first team place, despite his 17-years old.
