The difference between the first place in the Brasileirão Série A classification, Botafogo, and Palmeiras, vice-leader, has been decreasing.

Glorioso had a 13-point lead at the top of the competition and today has seven points more than Alviverde.

As a result, the Rio team’s chances of winning the title, which were once greater than 90%, are also falling.

According to UFMG – Federal University of Minas Gerais, Botafogo has just over 81% chance of being champion of the Brasileirão Série A in 2023.

After a series of good results from Palmeiras and fluctuations from their rival, the team led by Abel Ferreira has a 10.1% chance of winning the Brazilian Championship title at the end of the season.

The last round of the competition was essential for Alviverde to get excited, as the team beat Goiás and saw Botafogo lose to Atlético-MG at Arena MRV.

In total, Glorioso is coming off two defeats in the Brazilian Championship and before that the team was eliminated in the Copa Sudamericana, where they also lost the match.

‘Help’ from Corinthians to Palmeiras

To reach the lead in the Brasileirão Série A, in addition to winning their own games, Palmeiras needs Botafogo to stumble more often in matches.

For the 24th round of the Brazilian Championship, Glorioso comes to São Paulo to face Corinthians at the Neo Química Arena.

With this, Alviverde’s arch rival can give the team a ‘strength’ in its quest to reduce the Rio team’s advantage.

Focusing on Corinthians’ situation, the team has Vanderlei Luxemburgo under pressure in his position and needs to win the match to move away from the competition’s relegation zone once and for all.

Before Alvinegro enters the field, Palmeiras needs to ‘do its homework’ and beat Grêmio, at the Arena.

Alviverde’s game will be next Thursday, 21st, and Corinthians’ game against Botafogo is scheduled for Friday, 22nd.
