Santos square off against Atletico Goianiense in a Brasileiro Serie A game set to take place on Sunday at the Estadio Urbano Caldeira.

Santos drew their last game 1-1 against Independiente, which helped them advance to the last-eight of the Copa Libertadores. Kaio Jorge scored for Santos in the 38th minute, and Independiente's reply came way too late in the game.

Meanwhile, Atletico Goianiense succumbed to a 2-1 away loss to Cuiaba in their last competitive fixture. Atletico's Maranho was sent off after just 12 minutes of the match, which led to the visitors adopting an ultra-conservative approach for the rest of the game.
