Team News

  • Alberto Valentim is sweating over the fitness of Moisés and Luiz Fernando.
  • Both have been nursing injuries, having been forced off against Vasco last week.
  • Gilson and Rodrigo Pimpão will slot in if they don't make it.
  • Roger Machado will be hoping for a reaction after a disappointing end to the Paulistão.
  • He has no major absences to work around, so a strong side is likely despite midweek Libertadores duties.
  • Keno, Deyverson and Alejandro Guerra are among those pushing for starts.


  • Winning the Campeonato Carioca will have given Botafogo fresh hope that they can make a good fist of things in Série A this term.
  • Not for the first time, O Glorioso are operating with a fairly modest squad, but Alberto Valentim has made a good impression since taking over from Jair Ventura.
  • It hasn't been smooth sailing yet for Roger Machado at Palmeiras, but with luck he will be given time to built a side in his image.
