Isolated leader of the Brazilian Championship, the black and white team will have a full house in Rio in search of three more points
(updated at 5:10 p.m.)
Apparently back on track towards the title Brazilian championshipo Botafogo returns to play alongside his fans against the Athletico-PR at the Nilton Santos Stadium, this Saturday, at 9 pm, for the 28th round. All tickets have been sold and the aim is to erase the image left in the last two home games, when they lost to Flamengo (2-0) and drew with Goiás (1-1).
Effective until the end of the year, coach Lúcio Flávio will have two important returns and also had good news in the middle of the week. With this, he will be able to send the best he has at hand onto the field. Left-back Marçal and midfielder Tchê Tchê were suspended against the America-MG and now they are available again.
Athletico-PR is also going through a good moment and wants to get back into the fight for the top spots. Without being able to count on striker Canobbio, who received his third yellow card against Guild and is suspended, coach Wesley Carvalho will change the tactical formation. He should opt for a formation with three defenders, leaving the full-backs with more space on the wings.
