Fortaleza – Botafogo preview: Team news, form, and possible lineups

Read the latest news and updates on these two teams, including our predicted Fortaleza vs Botafogo lineups:

Fortaleza

Losing Copa Sudamericana final on penalties to LDU Quito clearly hit Fortaleza hard and they've been trying to find some semblance of a form ever since. After all, Fortaleza have lost 6 of their last 7 matches in Serie A. That being said, they still remain close to the middle of the standings, but also just 5 points ahead of the relegation zone, so they might need to get a few more points to avoid any stress. Meanwhile, Tobias Figueiredo and Vinicius Zanocelo are on Fortaleza's injury list right now.

Fortaleza predicted lineup:

Ricardo – Tinga, Titi, Britez, Pacheco – Alexandre, Welison – Pochettino, Crispim, Guilherme – Lucero

Botafogo

Despite their failure to win a game in the last 6 rounds of Serie and the fact that they've lost 4 of those matches, Botafogo is still in the title race. At the moment, they are two points behind Palmeiras, but they also have one match fewer – this upcoming duel with Fortaleza. So, a win in this game would put Botafogo back at the top, where they spent most of the season before hitting a wall hard in the last month or so. On the bright side, Botafogo have no injuries or suspensions to worry about at this time.

Botafogo predicted lineup:

Perri – Di Placido, Adrylson, Cuesta, Marcal – Freitas, Tche, Eduardo – Santos, Soares, Sa

Player to watch: Tiquinho Soares

The fact that Tiquinho Soares hasn't been in great form recently, just like Botafogo overall, is the clear proof of how important he is for this team. After all, with 16 goals and 4 assists in Serie A this season, Tiquinho is the key reason why Botafogo even got into the title race in the first place. So, if he can do well against Fortaleza, Botafogo can hope to get a crucial win in this match.
