Bragantino enters the competition in 12th place after amassing 18 points in his 14 league games.

The hosts went four games unbeaten, including victories over Flamengo and Coritiba, before losing 4-2 to Atletico Paranaense in the last game.

Atletico Paranaense were three goals down within 23 minutes before adding another goal in the 67th minute but goals from Alarmro and Luke Evangelista ensured that Bragantino added a degree of respectability to the score.

Although Monday’s hosts have conceded at least two goals in their last three games, they can be encouraged by the fact that they have scored in each of their last five games.

Maurizio BarbieriThe team can also draw self-confidence from the last two home games, both of which ended in victories.

Meanwhile, the visitors will be looking to bounce back from their 3-0 defeat by America Mineiro in the first leg of the Copa Brasil Round of 16.

Goals from Wellington Paulista, Danilo Avelar and Ale doom Botafogo to defeat and see them climb a mountain in the first leg.

The midweek result marks the sixth time Botafogo have lost in their last eight away games, with the only two wins over that period coming against Sao Paulo and Internacional.

As the visitors look to get back on track with a positive result on Monday, they will take little heart from a win in their last five away games in all competitions.

Botafogo have kept one clean sheet in their last 10 games and believe they need to improve defensively if they want to move up the league table.
