The matchday 23 of the Brasileirão season 2023 has just wrapped up, and we have only 15 left to finish the tournament, so it is a good moment to look not only at where the teams are currently but to see what can happen in the next weeks as they fight for the top spots.
Botafogo has been on a losing streak, and Palmeiras is picking up the pace, there is no reason to be worried about anything yet, but the lead at the top has been reduced to only 7 points now.
From the 3rd to 7th spots, things can switch up basically at any time, but it’s the fight between the 10th and 16th spot where things get more interesting, as all those teams can go up or down in the next few weeks, but only the ones over the 12th spot will make their way to international competitions.
The relegation zone is not yet stuck in place, but they seem to be having a hard time, needing at the minimum, 5 points to climb out.
