On June 12 2019 at 23:15 at the Estadio Nilton Santos in Rio de Janeiro in the upcoming regular match of the 9th game week of the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A the local Botafogo will play against their guests Gremio. This will be the match between one of the leaders of the competition and the solid middle-peasants of it.
After seven matches played in the national championship Botafogo gained 15 points with 8:6 goal difference and that is what let them take the fourth position in the standings for now. In general, the latest period of the season appeared to be really good for them as they outplayed CSA, Vasco Da Gama and Fluminense and also lost to Goias and Palmeiras.
Gremio have already gained 8 points and now they take the 13th position with 9:11 goal difference and they can’t be satisfied with it. The Blue and Blacks are really solid in their home matches where they outplayed Fortaleza and Atletico Mineiro not long ago. At the same time in the away matches they drew Corinthians and lost to Ceara and Bahia.
Both teams are really careful in the way they play and that is why the games of these teams aren’t usually with a lot of goals scored. This midweek the trend is to go on and there won’t many goals scored this time.
