Grêmio Prudente breath again after an incredible victory before Santos in Vila Belmiro (home of Santos) where the opponent openned the first half with 2X0 on the score. This result gave a breath of life to this virtually relegated team that now sees the first team outside of descent zone with 10 points higher, but still has an impossible mission and Prudente have to do everything they did in the championship to save themselves and still count on much, much luck. For this match the team will have the returns of Anderson Luís and Diego Giareta who have not played against Santos, but Hugo, Rodrigo Mancha, Marcelo Oliveira, Wanderley and Weslei all remain out.

I saw the unbelievable defeat of Santos and I do not say that what happened was more due to a mental diarrhea of the team of Santos than merit of Prudente. The team is limited and the championship standing match with the cast and the level of football that the team has made. Taking on a team of Cruzeiro bitten by defeat in the derby, with a cast that is qualitatively superior and the best visitors team of the tournament against the worst home team I believe that the Cruzeiro team meets all the conditions to get the victory and return to the leadership, I consider the odds for this very interesting.
