WEDNESDAY JULY 11th
Three matches/ events to discuss today and a big week ahead, the weekend football looks really good !
A suggestion on the Brazilian game and two official red type selections, including one for the MLS our favourite league !
BRAZIL SERIE A : CORINTHIANS - BOTAFOGO
Two home games this week for new continental champions Corinthians and tonight is the first time all season we have see all their stars in domestic action. As I explained a couple of times previously, winning the Copa Libertadores was given total priority and that was achieved last midweek, they gave everyone the weekend off and stuck with the B team for the trip to Sport Recife, where they came back with a point, now it is time to start collecting league victories. They have four long term injuries, but won the Copa without them ,everyone else is available and they look set to go with their strongest possible eleven this evening. A win tonight would take them out of the "drop zone" and up to 13th , another at the weekend into lower mid table and with four of their next five at home, they could easily be back contending at the right end of the table in double quick time.
The visitors are very inconsistent, their record of 4-0-3 is a reflection of that and their supporters have seen a league high 30 goals already this season, at an average of 4.285 per game. Scoring the most and conceding the fourth highest total in the division, however, scoring wise they have yet to meet a backline as miserly as their hosts (just 47 goals conceded in 53 league games and four in winning the Copa). They will have Marcio Azevedo back from suspension, but Marcelo Mattos and new signing Clarence Seedorf are still not available, which robs them of a lot of midfield experience. Rafael Marques has also signed a contract this week and it will be interesting to see how he and Seedorf perform, but that is for the future.
Corinthians are the number one side in Brazil and the continent by some way, they are tough, uncompromising and highly efficent, not giving opponents a moments rest, they were the first Copa champions since Boca in 1978 to pass through an entire Libertadores campaign undefeated. I suspect they will be very motivated tonight, Botafogo have conceded the first goal in five of their seven starts and if they do so again, it will probably be game over. My only concern is that Corinthians have a poor record in this series on home soil, but they really ought to win. Corinthians -0.5 ball 1.97 asian line.
