Botafogo’s instability cheers up the Brasileirão

With a seven-point advantage over Palmeiras, who are in second place, Botafogo’s instability encourages the Brasileirão.

It could be a temporary moment of lower technical performance, which will be confirmed if they win the next matches again. However, if the cast’s material becomes fatigued, the situation may change.

The championship drags on with the low technical level of most teams, poorly maintained pitches, aggressive organized fans, confusing referees and some unacceptable mistakes in the operation of the VAR.

Most teams started playing just to try to win places in the Libertadores or Sudamericana.

This is the case of Athletico, who failed in their campaigns in the Copa do Brasil and Libertadores, being eliminated by Flamengo and Bolívar, respectively, in the Ligga Arena.

But the fight is really tenacious between those threatened by relegation.

There are seven teams taking some kind of risk with Corinthians, Bahia and Goiás still outside the group and with a lot of fat to burn.

Santos, Vasco, América and Coritiba, a few rounds ago, are among the likely relegated.

Of the four, the only one that has shown any capacity for recovery is Vasco, since the Argentine Ramon Diaz took charge and some hired reinforcements have shown positive performance.

In fact, the Rio classic played on Saturday in which Vasco beat Fluminense 4-2 was excellent.

The most complicated situation is that of Coritiba, which has suffered six consecutive defeats, playing at home or away, presenting serious deficiencies on both a tactical and technical level.

Some contracted players appear to be far below the expectations generated by the loyal fans,
