Santos’ top scorer in the Brazilian Championship, striker Marcos Leonardo returns to the team after serving a suspension and seeks to end a fast against Goiás. The striker completed a month without scoring goals for Peixe.

Santos and Goiás face each other on Monday, at 8 pm, in Vila Belmiro, in a match valid for the 25th round of the Brasileirão.

The last time shirt 9 scored was on August 1, against Fluminense, in the 20th round of the Brasileirão. Since then, there have been three matches in which the forward has gone blank: the 2-1 victory against Coritiba away from home, the 1-0 defeat against América-MG, also as a visitor, and the 1-0 victory over São Paulo in Vila Belmiro.

In the classic, he received the third yellow card. Therefore, he did not participate in the 0-0 draw with Cuiabá last Sunday.
