Botafogo vs Atlético-PR Today’s Soccer Prediction
In the tenth round, Botafogo, at home, did not pass the 0-0 draw against Ceará, the Brazilian Championship lantern and the only team still without a victory in the 2018 season. On Sunday, June 10, the Rio de Janeiro alvinegro plus one time was equal. But as a visitor. In front of the Bahia, in Salvador, started the 3 to 3.
A result that can be considered good by circumstances. Despite having been on the lead three times, Botafogo played one less athlete throughout the second half. Uruguayan striker Rodrigo Aguirre was sent off in the first half.
With 14 points (three wins, five draws and three losses), Botafogo completed their participation in Matchday 11 in the 12th position. The score is the same as for Fluminense, who finishes with the eleventh position due to the tiebreaking criteria.
The coach Alberto Valentin exalted the attitude of the team and criticized the refereeing. That means he must maintain on Wednesday the base that he acted in the capital of Bahia. You only have to choose a substitute for Aguirre, who can not play because he needs to comply with automatic suspension.
Maybe even the victory will not be able to keep coach Fernando Diniz in command of Atletico-PR in the period of the Brasileirão’s stoppage during the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The home defeat 1-0 on Saturday 9 of June, for Sao Paulo seems to have sealed the fate of the coach.
After all, it meant the loss of a historical invincibility. Since opening the Arena da Baixa, the hurricane had never been surpassed by São Paulo. So far, he had 13 wins and five draws in home clashes with the tricolor.
The trip prevented the red-black from leaving the relegation zone. With nine points (two wins, three draws and six losses). It is in seventeenth place, with one point less in comparison as Santos, sixteenth and first out of the sticking region. The Santista alvinegro, however, made one match less.
Presenting a 36% advantage, Fernando Diniz said at the end of the game with São Paulo, who has no intention of resigning. However, the campaign with just one win over the last 13 games can make the board enjoy the no-play period to change the captain giving the new contract time to meet and train the cast.
The fans have already asked for this change with shouts in the confrontation with São Paulo. No top hat stood up to defend the coach from criticism.
Soccer Prediction of the Day Botafogo vs Atlético-PR
The impression is that the players of Atlético-PR themselves are not very satisfied with the tactical stance implemented by Diniz. This is not said verbally, but the loose performances signal that they are not convinced that the coach’s path is correct.
Excessive ball touches especially compromise offensive performance as it allows rivals more time to position themselves better to contain the Hurricane’s attacks. Of breaking, it ends up exposing players of limited technical quality, who eventually end up missing passes and making way for the counterattacks of the rivals.
This makes Botafogo’s victory a good indication of the confrontation.
