Botafogo vs Sao Paulo by Dajkula

Botafogo are the newcomers in the league and will have their debut against the strong Sao Paulo that finished 4 `th last season and was able to play in the Copa Libertadores. In that same Copa they are now in the quarter-finals and face Mineiro in the return match. Sao Paulo has a 1:0 from the first match but that will not be enough if the team isn`t 100% focused. So the first 11 from the last match will not play in this match and that should really effect the team performance.


Botafogo promoted from the Serie b and had a great season last year finishing well ahead of the others. They re a s trong home side and they can put that to the test in this match. There is no question about the motivation for the hosts even if the opponents don`t have their biggest guns.


Sao Paulo was quite poor away from home last season with 6-2-11 all together. It is kind of a tradition for the teams to perform bad on the travels and Paulo is no exception. The odds are not great but that is the situation in the league even if it is the first round.


Botafogo squad will be fielded with:"Helton Leite, Luis Ricardo, Carli (Renan Fonseca), Emerson Silva e Victor Luis; Lindoso, Bruno Silva, Gegê e Leandrinho; Salgueiro e Ribamar."


Sao Paolo:" Renan Ribeiro; Auro, Lugano, Lyanco e Matheus Reis; Banguelê, Lucão, Wilder, Lucas Fernandes e Centurión; Alan Kardec".


Botafogo to take the game.
