Botafogo is not living its happiest hours of the season, as it is dropping points in the last games, the difference is down to only six points and the outlook may be more complex, as it has to visit a Corinthians that is always complicated, on the Matchday 24 of the Brasileirão.
The ‘Coringão’ is coming from a great match against Grêmio in a 4-4 draw at home, although it has five games without a win.
‘O Fogo’ lost its last match 1-0 in its visit to Atlético Mineiro, so it is still the leader with 51 points, six more than its follower, Palmeiras.

Onde posso assistir?
Por que apostar no Corinthians?
Corinthians has its mind exclusively on the Copa Sudamericana, where it must face the semifinals against Fortaleza and that has caused it to be 14th in o Brasileirão, three points away from the relegation places.
The ‘Timao’ is coming from a 4-4 draw at home against Grêmio and, as a result, has moved up one place in the standings, but is still looking at the relegation places with a sidelong glance. Their offense has left much to be desired since they have scored 27 goals. Their best scorer is Roger Guedes with seven.
The team coached by Vanderlei Luxemburgo has not won in six games in Brazilian soccer and at home, they have not lost in their last five matches.
They have scored 18 points at home and if there is one thing that stands out, it is that they have had an acceptable defense at home, with 12 conversions against.
The São Paulo team is missing Giovane, Leo Natel, Paulinho, and Roni due to injury. The good news is that Uruguayan defender Bruno Mendez is available again.
Por que apostar no Botafogo?
August and September have not been the best months for Botafogo, which was eliminated from the Copa Sudamericana and has dropped points against rivals such as Cruzeiro, São Paulo, and Flamengo.
In fact, on the last matchday the ‘Fogao’ was defeated 1-0 by Atlético Mineiro, with a goal by Paulinho. Adding up all the competitions, the team from Rio de Janeiro has had three defeats in a row and has only won once in the last six matches.
This has caused Botafogo to remain as leader, but with only six points ahead of Palmeiras, there are still matches against Fluminense, Athletico Paranaense, the ‘Verdao’, Grêmio, Santos, Cruzeiro, and Internacional de Porto Alegre on the horizon.
All in all, Botafogo is a great visitor, with 18 points in 11 matches, second only to Flamengo’s 20 points.
The team coached by Bruno Lage is missing defender Rafael and midfielder Patrick de Paula.
