Santos had its last practice before tomorrow's game agaist Avai at the Vila Belmiro. Coach Luxemburgo did not push the players too much but they did play some ball under the rain. Some players even played some "foot-volley".
Luxa decided to spare his atletes for tomorrow since the they were still in need of rest because of the problems they faced with the two hour late flight last Thursday night.
That was the main reason why the players were spared during practice. By doing so, Luxa might be keeping the same players that won Coritiba last Wednesday in Cascavel. The only doubt is who will be playing in in the midle field position together with Ganso and Madson. The options are: Rodrigo Mancha and Germano, who is coming back from suspencion.
"Who decides who plays is Wanderley. But I think that the starters agaisnt Coxa did a good job. We were able to get the three points and we hope coach keeps the same player together. But whoever goes in to the field tomorrow will do whatever it takes to win those three points", said Madson.
Triguinho was the only "new" player in practice this Friday. He has been recovering from a surgery in his right foot.
