This Friday, Botafogo finished preparing for the match against Altético-MG, next Saturday (16), at 9pm, at Arena MRV. And coach Bruno Lage must make changes to the starting lineup for the match, which is valid for the 23rd round of the competition. At least in two positions, the changes in relation to the defeat to Flamengo are certain. But others can also happen.

According to the newspaper “O Globo”, Di Plácido trained with the first team during the week and will start playing against Atlético-MG. In the defeat to Flamengo, in the last game before the FIFA Data break, JP was the starter – he was heavily criticized for his performance, which ended up, in a way, contributing to the whole scenario that led coach Bruno Lage to warn that I was handing over the position at that time.

Another sure change is in the middle. Without Gabriel Pires, sent off at the end of the classic with Flamengo, Tchê Tchê should return to the starting lineup and will be played in the middle.

Botafogo may still have changes in attack. And also on the right side. Segovinha and Júnior Santos compete for position on the right wing. The Paraguayan was a starter against Flamengo, but he didn’t perform well either. Thus, Júnior Santos can return to the team.
