The 2-1 defeat by Newell’s Old Boys in the fifth round of the Sudamericana group stage on Tuesday angered Santos fans in Vila Belmiro. The protests started in the 57th minute of the second half. In addition to the chants against the cast and the scoreboard, some bombs were also thrown on the pitch.
“Hey, Rueda, go fuck yourself”, “Rueda, go fuck yourself Peixão”, “Rueda, go fuck yourself, our Santos doesn’t need you”, “hey, CG, go fuck yourself *” , “a team without shame”, “it’s not easy, no, it must honor Peixão’s shirt”, “apart from all, omissive management and a rogue cast” and “it’s not easy, no, I want a team to shout it’s a sample” were some of the songs sung by Torcida Jovem, the main organizer of the club.
Amid protests, the players were delayed descending into the locker room. As they made their way to the exit, the athletes were loudly booed and once again bombs were thrown on the lawn.

With the result, Alvinegro Praiano reached its seventh consecutive winless game of the season. Three defeats and four draws.
In Sudamericana the team is in third place in group E, with four points, three more than Audax Italiano. The Argentines are still in the lead, now with 15.
In this way, coach Odair Hellmann’s team could be eliminated from the competition this Wednesday, should Audax Italiano score against Blooming away. The Brazilians will only survive if the Chileans lose to the Bolivians.
Santos now focuses on the Brazilian championship. On Saturday, at 16 (Brasilia time), the team will visit Coritiba, for the 10th round of the tournament. The last match for the South American will be on June 29, against Blooming, in Vila Belmiro, at 19:00.
