Both these teams have not fared quite well in their past several games and both their defenses have suffered in plenty too.
And this stint in the Libertadores have affected their form as well. It will take some time for them to get back into their groove, especially with the squad being under huge pressure.
Meanwhile, Santos barely secured a top-place finish in their group in the Sudamericana and it was not at all impressive. They could manage to score a total of just 6 goals all through the campaign and they had remained winless in half of their total games as well.
They are also on a long winless stretch of performances lately, and their defense has been totally poor in their recent road fixtures too.
Tachira had lost 3 of their past 5 overall games and they had let in 2 or more goals in 3 of their past 5 fixtures. Moreover, they had also let in two or more goals in 4 of their past 6 appearances at this ground.
Considering these observations, expect a high-scoring thriller this Thursday between the two teams.
