O Botafogo crossed the country and will try this Saturday, against the rowing, at 7:30 pm, in Baenão, in Belém, keep the momentum going with Enderson Moreira and follow the G-4 of Serie B. The match is valid for the 22nd round of the competition.
With seven wins in nine games with the coach, Botafogo is coming from a very important victory over the leader Coritiba away from home and is trying for the first time in this Serie B to mend two positive results in a row as a visitor.
With 35 points, Glorioso started Saturday in the G-4, after stumbling blocks by Sampaio Corrêa (34) and Avaí (35) in the round. To stay in the access zone, Botafogo needs to win so as not to depend on other results. If they lose or tie, they’ll have to root for a draw between Náutico (34) and Guarani (33).
After a full week to work, Botafogo traveled on Thursday to Belém without Rafael Navarro, suspended by the third yellow card. On the other hand, Enderson Moreira won the reinforcements Charlie (left side) and Luiz Henrique (half), who came from Fortaleza and can now make their debut.
Without giving any clues about the lineup, the coach from Alvinegro must at least make a right change: the experienced Rafael Moura will own for the first time. In the middle, Luís Oyama can gain a position in place of Pedro Castro or Barreto. There will also be news on the bank: under-20 top scorer, Gabriel Conceição was listed for the first time.
The goalkeeper is out of combat Gatito Fernández (swelling in the right knee), the attackers ronald (ankle surgery) and Diego Gonçalves (hip injury) and the left side Hugo (collarbone fracture). The first three are already in the transition process.
Suspended by the third yellow card, the forward Rafael Navarro also embezzles Botafogo this Saturday. One of the alternatives for the position, the young Matheus Nascimento he is not available, as he is with the Brazilian U-17 team that plays friendlies in Paraguay.
Hanging from Botafogo
The defender has two yellow cards. Kanu and the attackers Warley and Rafael Moura. If one of them receives a card this Saturday, he will have to comply with an automatic suspension against Londrina, on the 11th, at Nilton Santos.
