Botafogo vs Gremio
Competition: Brazil Serie A
Date: 13 June 2019
Kick-off: 00:15 CET
Who would have thought that just before the Copa América break Botafogo would be in the Serie A top four, having a game in hand as well (the one against Palmeiras, which they lost on the pitch, but it’s still unclear if that 0-1 will stand). Last weekend they beat CSA in Maceió, despite the fact that they were losing in the 83rd minute(!). Cícero equalized, and Alex Santana scored the winner in added time, Botafogo’s first win away from Rio de Janeiro since the start of the Serie A season. Their coach, Eduardo Barroca, admitted that his team did not play their best game, but he still praised his players for their commitment and passion, without which, obviously, they wouldn’t have left Maceió with all three points, after losing until the 83rd minute. Botafogo are on 15 points, sitting fourth in the table, four points behind leaders Palmeiras.
Just like Botafogo, Gremio won their game last weekend in added time, when Pepê scored the only goal of their match at home against Fortaleza. Attacking midfielder Luan did not travel with the group to Rio de Janeiro, troubled by muscle pain. He has suffered from various minor injuries the last year and a half, never really reaching the game levels of late 2017, when he led Gremio to the Copa Libertadores title. Unlike him, left-back Juninho Capixaba and defensive midfielder Michel shook off their injury problems and are available. Renato Gaúcho is expected to have Paulo Victor, Leonardo Gomes, Geromel, Rodriguez, Juninho Capixaba, Maicon, Michel, Alisson, Jean Pyerre, Tardelli (or Pepê) and Felipe Vizeu in the starting lineup.
