Despite three consecutive defeats and seeing the leadership threatened after opening 13 points ahead, the twisted of Botafogo sold out tickets for the game against Grêmio this Thursday, in São Januário, in a show of love. During this Wednesday’s “SporTV Selection” program, the commentator Paulo Cesar Vasconcellos spoke of this force that will be alongside the black and white team in the final rounds.
– The only certainty I have is that Botafogo fans will increasingly encourage the team. She’s suspicious, but she’s already been beaten so much, and this team has some prospects for excitement, even though it’s going through a phase of total instability. She, so mistreated by other directions, will now be more of a partner than ever. I have no doubt that every game in Rio and abroad the fans will be there, because it is a loyal and dedicated fan base and Botafogo only exists to this day because of that fan base. She never left the club and now she won’t leave – said PC.
With six rounds left to go – Botafogo, Bragantino and Flamengo have one game in hand – Glorioso is going through a delicate moment in the competition.
– The championship reaches its finishing line with the prospect of being intensely contested and it is exactly the team that led for the longest time that is most under suspicion. If there is a team that today generates doubts and uncertainty, it is Botafogo. The other teams that had a normal championship, which fluctuated, such as Palmeiras, Bragantino, Grêmio, Flamengo and Atlético-MG, are generating more certainties than uncertainties – PC pointed out.
