Brazil – Serie A

Kick-off at 22:00 UK / 23:00 CET
Venue: Estádio José Pinheiro Borda.
Matchday 13 of Brazil Serie A is set for this Sunday as the title challenging Internacional host the relegation fighting Botafogo RJ. These two sides will lock horns at Estádio José Pinheiro Borda.
Internacional are at the 3rd spot with 21 points from 12 games. They won 5 times in the league while drawing on 6 and on losing on one other occasion. They have scored 16 goals in total while conceding a sum of 11 which shows that some defensive structure needs to be improved. The hosts need just 2 more points to climb to the table top.
The hosts are hoping to win again after their last result being a 2-1 Serie A win over Goias. They have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 5 goals on the way. But they have a strong attacking line who keeps on finding the back of the net on every occasion.
On the other side, Botafogo resides at the 17th position on the table with 12 points. Of the 11 matches played, they won and drew 3 times each while having lost on 5 other occasions. The visitors are on a dreadful run as of recent with the side losing the last 4 league games in succession.
Following on from being defeated by 0-1 in their last game at the hands of Avai, Botafogo will hope to get a better result this time. That loss marked their fourth defeat in a row. They have been scored against in all of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 10 goals in total.
