Glorioso faces América-MG this Sunday morning and goes with everything in search of the second consecutive triumph in the Brazilian Championship.

Botafogo and América-MG face each other this Sunday, at 11 am, at Nilton Santos, in a match valid for the Brazilian Championship. Glorioso needs to win at home to erase the ghost that has been plaguing the alvinegro team this season.

Nilton Santos will be full of Botafogo fans once again. Despite the convincing victory over Fortaleza last Sunday, many alvinegros are left with an inevitable flea behind their ear when Botafogo plays at home.

This doubt occurs because of some mistakes made by Glorioso this season. Botafogo failed to add important points in the Brazilian Championship this year because of draws and defeats suffered at Nilton Santos.

This season, Botafogo failed to win, at home, clubs like Juventude, Goiás, Avaí, Ceará and Atlético-GO. These setbacks at Nilton Santos ended up preventing Botafogo from living a more comfortable situation in the Brazilian Championship.

Inconstancy is one of Luís Castro’s biggest opponents in this Brazilian Championship. Of the 12 games as home team, Botafogo managed to win only three. With Nilton Santos packed this Sunday, Glorioso seeks to deliver a convincing victory to reassure the alvinegros and aim for a positive end to the season.
