Sergipe x Botafogo: viewing locations, formations, embezzlement and arbitration

I was under pressure after two consecutive defeats in the classics at Carioca ChampionshipHey Botafogo Always treacherous debut Brazil Cup 2023 This Thursday (2/3) ago Sergipe, at 8 p.m., at Arena Batistan, in Aracaju. By organizing, the Glorioso has the advantage of qualifying with a tie.

Those who advance will face Brazilians in the second stage, as manager, who eliminated Athletic-MG with a 1-1 draw in Sao Joao del Rey on Wednesday. In addition to the vacancy, there is still the prize he gave cbf. In the case of Botafogo, the rating is worth more than R$1.7 million. If Sergipe applies, the “PIX” is R$900,000.

In addition to the bad moment on the field, Botafogo had another unexpected victim. Forward Tequinho Soares has been provisionally suspended for 30 days by TJD-RJ for striking his head against referee Tarcizo Caetano in the classics against Flamengo, last Saturday, in favor of Carioca, and will not be able to play. However, the club can still attempt to appeal to STJD this Thursday.

Thus, the tendency is for young Mateos Nascimento to be the one in command of the attack. On the other hand, coach Luis Castro will return, Adrilsson and Rafael, who did not face Flamengo due to their suspension, and defender Felipe Sampaio was released after suffering a non-traumatic faint in the match against Vasco.

Botafogo embezzlement

Gatito Fernandez (left shoulder) and Eduardo (left thigh), who are already training with the ball, Patrick Di Paula (ligament injuries left knee) and Caique (right knee) are missing from Botafogo for medical reasons. Tiquinho Soares has been preemptively suspended by TJD-RJ for 30 days for being sent off in the classic against Flamengo and will also not be able to play – however, the club can still try to appeal to STJD.

Opponent – Sergipe

Sergipe arrives motivated by the campaign he has been in in the Sergipe Championship – where he is one of the vice-leaders, with 16 points in seven games – and in the Northeast Cup – where he is fourth in Group B, in the ranking zone. There is no embezzlement for coach Rafael Jacques and he is going full-on for a vacancy in the second stage of the Copa do Brasil and “PIX” worth R$900,000.


The expectation is a good crowd in Batistao, because Botafogo fans are very numerous in Sergipe and in other neighboring regions. Tickets cost R$100 (full) and R$50 (half) in non-covered sectors.
