Botafogo vs Fluminense Preview

Botafogo vs Fluminense

Competition – Brazil Serie A

Stadium – Olimpico João Havelange

Date: 14th May 2018

Kick-off time – 23:59 GMT

This Monday evening derby will see these two local teams come together with bragging rights at stake.

After losing the Taca Rio to Fluminense earlier in the year, those in Botafogo will have revenge on their mind ahead of this fixture.

They have moved on well from that loss, making good progress in the continent, and starting the Serie A campaign on a good note.

Fogo have survived a really tough start to the season after having to face three of the strongest sides in the league in the form of the Palmeiras, Gremio, and Cruzeiro and they came out from those fixtures with 5 points.

Their 2-1 win over Gremio in their last home game would have boosted their confidence ahead of this match.

Fluminense will be exhausted from their trip to Bolivia in midweek and that could see them struggle here.

They lost that game 2-0 to Nacional Potosi but still progressed thanks to a 3-0 first leg win.

The way their players lay on the pitch after full time in that game shows how much effort they had to put into that game to survive and with limited options almost the same lineup is expected in this game.

They have made a strong start to the season, picking up 7 points from their last three games and they will be looking to build on that in this game.
