The "Fogão" has demonstrated that it doesn't have the strength to escape relegation, but they will not stop fighting. The team has serious technical issues, in addition to the excessive change of coaches. Thus, the team is unable to assemble a game system and a connection that is sufficient to compete with their opponents. The team lives the drama of fighting yet again against relegation and will play hard against the "Furacão".

Confirmed Lineup: Diego Cavalieri, Kanu, Marcelo Benevenuto, Kevin, Victor Luis, Caio Alexandre, Salomon Kalou, José Welison, Cícero, Pedro Raúl, Bruno Nazário.

The team from Paraná is in the middle of the leaderboard and will probably fulfill the calendar until the end of the championship without great ambitions. They'll use the remaining matches as a laboratory to define which players deserve to continue for the next season. Thus, their squad will enter focused on the challenge and wanting to play their part, bringing the three points home. This is a good chance for the offense to show its value, because Botafogo has a very open back.
