· Willian Farias is suspended, so Cleiton Xavier could come into midfield.
· Paulinho also serves a ban but probably would not have started anyway.
· Victor Luis and Emerson Silva are back in training after shaking off knocks.
· But Camilo and Guilherme are still absent for the time being.
· Walter Montillo could be in line for a start behind the strikers.
· After a torrid start to the season, Vitória shook off the dust in handy fashion at the weekend, seeing off Atlético Mineiro.
· That is great news for new coach Alexandre Gallo, who will be hopeful of adding three more points to the tally when Botafogo visit Salvador.
· O Glorioso have yet to score in their three away games in Série A so far, which will be a concern for Jair Ventura.
