An important duel in the bottom section of the Serie A, with both Botafogo and Goiás experiencing more worry than joy. This match is a classic "six-pointer" with the home team placed 15th and the visitors in 20th place.

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only three days ago in the Serie A.

It's quite the trip for Goiás when visiting Botafogo as the cities are 1300 kilometers apart.
