Tiquinho Soares missed Botafogo’s 2-1 victory at Grêmio a few days ago for personal reasons, but is expected to be available for this match. While Botafogo have struggled against Athletico PR lately, Soares did find the net in three of the last four clashes between these teams. The 33-year-old has scored twice in three starts this season, and will fancy his chances against the Parana-based side.
