Scene: Estadio Olimpico Joao Havelange (The Engenhao), in Rio de Janeiro
Before Thursday evenings misfortune with Sao Paulo, Botafogo were on an unbeaten 7 game roll, don’t foam at the mouth excessively however as 4 from that roll were draws. Notwithstanding, the majority of their draws have been away and today they face a group in Atletico PR who have dominated just 2 matches from the last 7.
Sao Paulo beat the “Large Fire” (Fogao) 3-1, Thursday, barely amazing as I several sneak peaks prior, Sao Paulo will ascend the alliance quicker than Jacob ascended his stepping stool – so misfortune will not be held against them, moreover, Big Fire hasn’t succeeded at Morumbi since 1998.
Before Thursday night’s 0-2 success at Cruzeiro, Atletico had just dominated 1 match from 6 – the success would have without a doubt infused some certainty into generally a striving group. We musn’t in any case move cleared away by the triumph, it was after all against a remarkable low upright Cruzeiro who are mulling around the drop zone. เว็บw88 It was a crude undertaking with 3 red cards and as regular of late, the Cruz overwhelmed early play to waver big time in play as well as with discipline as well.

We were unable to get into our shirt any of these, yet Botafogo are top picks and deservedly so.
Notwithstanding Atletico dominating both August matches it’s pushing the boat to anticipate a third back to back triumph. Not just that, a brief glance back at their couple of wins this year were against either groups depressed or groups that were at that point, battling.
I had begun to investigate this review before Thursday evenings games and had from the beginning been preferring Big Fire, I actually accept they will win this. However, Prudence has been ringing in my ears “cover the draw” , “cover the draw”.
