Brazilian club Botafogo have been struggling without the presence of Clarence Seedorf, who announced his retirement and decided to become the manager of AC Milan a few months ago, in this campaign. In the previous season, they came close to winning the title under the stewardship of the Dutchman, who was one of the prestigious players in Brazilian football. The club go into the next match against Unión Española looking to get three points that would put them top of the Copa Libertadores table. Ahead of this match, midfielder Jorge Wagner has spoken about the need to get a win from this encounter.

Botafogo have been very poor in this campaign, as they have managed to just two wins in the last five matches of the competition. In contrast, their opponents in the next match – Unión Española – have been unbeaten in the last four matches. Hence, they are the favourites to get a win despite this match being away from home. This would be a disastrous result for Botafogo, as it could potentially make them slip to second place in the table. Even though they have a comfortable advantage over Independiente from Ecuador, Botafogo will want to get the top spot of the group nonetheless.

“We are used to playing in the stadium and are very strong there. The teams that come to play us know this. It’s time that show what we’re really about, with a game of quick passing, lots of pressure and tight marking. We won’t give the opposition any space,” said Wagner ahead of the match. The home support will be a crucial factor in deciding the outcome, as Wagner has called for the fans to make the Maracanã a fortress. The final group match of the tournament for the club will be against San Lorenzo.
