Botafogo coach Eduardo Hungaro continues to prioritise the Libertadores
Another clássico this weekend sees the Alvinegro take on Rio de Janeiro rivals Flamengo at the Maracanã.
On Saturday morning Botafogo coach Eduardo Hungaro took a training session at Rio de Janeiro’s Engenhão stadium ahead of the derby clash on Sunday.
It is expected that the team the coach experimented with during the session will be the same as that which will start against Flamengo.
The team comprised of reserve team players as they continue to focus on this season’s Copa Libertadores.
The game, however, will see the debut of Paraguayan Pablo Zeballas following his arrival from Olímpia.
Probable Botafogo side to face Flamengo on Sunday: Helton Leite, Lucas, Dankler, André Bahia and Junior Cesar; Aírton, Bolatti, Renato and Daniel; Zeballos and Henrique.
On Wednesday, Botafogo will face Independiente del Valle of Ecuador in the Libertadores as they look to continue their good form in the competition.
