In spite of Juventude's recent struggles, Jadson is a player they can rely on to provide the goals. The former Udinese midfielder was directly involved in three of Juventude's nine goals so far, scoring once whilst providing two assists. It'll be interesting to see how he'll match-up against Vasco da Gama's defence.
