Unbeaten in 14 games, Botafogo is the isolated leader of the Brazilian Championship with a 100% success rate and 12 points added after four rounds, the team’s best campaign to open the national championship since 1981.
On the other hand, Corinthians are in their third match under Vanderlei Luxemburgo, who has yet to win. The coach lost to Independiente del Valle, in favor of CONMEBOL Libertadores, and drew with Fortaleza in Brazil, both matches at home. Now try the first victory.
More than that: they need the result to avoid the risk of falling back into the relegation zone in the competition. Timão goes through a marathon of matches, and immediately after facing Botafogo, they will face a classic match against Sao Paulo, on Sunday, at the New Quimeca Arena.

Botafogo – Coach: Luis Castro
The Portuguese coach has no new embezzlement in connection with the win over Atlético MG, last Sunday. The doubts stem from the rotations Castro made in the line-up to adapt to different opponents.
The possibility of facing a more closed Corinthians, may lead the coach to change the wings, but the good matches of Junior Santos and Victor Sa entitle them to continue in the team.
Possible line-up: Lucas Perry, De Placido, Adrilsson, Cuesta and Marsal; Marlon Freitas, Chi Chi and Eduardo; Junior Santos (Gustavo Soares), Victor Sa (Luis Henrique) and Geneho Soares.
suspended: Tequinho Soares, Cuesta and de Placido.
Embezzlement: Patrick Di Paula, Rafael and Danilo Barbosa (injured); gatito (transmission).
Corinthians – Coach: Vanderlei Luxemburgo
Timão’s main absence is defensive midfielder Fausto Vera, who is suspended for accumulating yellow cards. Midfielder Guilherme Biro has introduced himself to the Brazilian U-20 national team and is also short for the fencing. Plus, of course, for Renato Augusto, who has been out of action since the beginning of last month.
Some players were not included in Luxa’s selection list: defensive midfielder Cantelo, right-back Rafael Ramos, defender Balbuena and striker Junior Moraes. In terms of the team, the formation should undergo some changes in addition to Fausto. Maycon and Paulinho struggle with the vacancy.
Up front, Yuri Alberto, who sat on the bench in the last round, could remain out of the starting lineup.
Possible line-up: Cassio, Wagner, Gil, Murillo and Matheus Bedou (Fabio Santos); Rooney, Maicon (Paulinho) and Matheus Araujo; Addson, Pedro (Yuri Alberto) and Roger Geddes.
Embezzlement: Fausto Vera (suspended), Guilherme Biro (Brazil U-20 National Team) and Renato Augusto (in transition after knee surgery).
