    This year, the bottom 4 teams will be relegated to Serie B in 2005. As of today, with only 8 rounds to go, the situation down under is:

    16º) Paysandu, 46
    17º) Criciúma, 44
    18º) Vitória, 43
    19º) Flamengo, 42
    20º) Atlético-MG, 42
    ------- relegation line
    21º) Paraná, 41
    22º) Botafogo, 40
    23º) Guarani, 38
    24º) Grêmio, 35

    Next matches of each contender (24 points to play):

    Paysandu: Coritiba, Paraná, Santos and Guarani (home); Palmeiras, Criciúma, Atlético-MG and Juventude (away)

    Criciúma: Santos, Paysandu, Paraná and Coritiba (home); Atlético-MG, Atlético-PR, Ponte Preta and Palmeiras (away)

    Vitória: Juventude, Grêmio, São Paulo and Ponte Preta (home); Corinthians, Guarani, Coritiba and Cruzeiro (away)

    Flamengo: Guarani, Botafogo, Coritiba and Cruzeiro (home); Juventude, Atlético-MG, Palmeiras and São Paulo (away)

    Atlético-MG: Criciúma, Flamengo, Paysandu and São Caetano (home); Goiás, Paraná, Figueirense and Grêmio (away)

    Paraná: Grêmio, Atlético-MG, Goiás and Fluminense (home); São Caetano, Paysandu, Criciúma and Internacional (away)

    Botafogo: Cruzeiro, Coritiba, Guarani and Corinthians (home); São Paulo, Flamengo, Juventude and Atlético-PR (away)

    Guarani: Goiás, Vitória, Figueirense and Grêmio (home); Flamengo, Palmeiras, Botafogo and Paysandu (away)

    Grêmio: Palmeiras, Ponte Preta, Atlético-PR and Atlético-MG (home); Paraná, Vitória, Santos and Guarani (away)

    Some will play mostly teams with little ambition in the competition; others will face the title contenders. There will be many direct confrontations, too. Who is doomed? Who has the hardest path to escape relegation? Who will be playing Série B in 2005? Place your bets!

    Good idea for a thread, rednaxel. I think I'll add a poll to it. Voters may choose 4 teams, since that's the number of clubs that get relegated to Série B 2005.

    17) Criciúma, 45 pts, 39 games
    18) Flamengo, 45 pts, 40 games
    19) Paraná, 44 pts, 39 games
    20) Vitória, 43 pts, 39 games
    ---------- relegation line

    Re: poll

    Fluminense 0 x 2 Figueirense
    Vitória 2 x 0 Grêmio
    Palmeiras 0 x 2 Guarani
    Paraná 1 x 0 Atlético-MG

    After 42 rounds (the round will be completed tomorrow):
    16º) Vitória, 48 pts, 42
    17º) Paraná, 48 pts, 42
    18º) Paysandu, 48 pts, 41
    19º) Criciúma, 46 pts, 41
    20º) Botafogo, 46 pts, 41
    ---------- relegation line
    21º) Atlético-MG, 46 pts, 42
    22º) Flamengo, 45 pts, 41
    23º) Guarani, 43 pts, 42
    24º) Grêmio, 38 pts, 42

    Flamengo is the only one that may escape relegation zone tomorrow. Paysandu, Criciúma and Botafogo have a precious chance to increase their lead over the bottom four. Grêmio is almost in second division - only a miracle saves them.

    Tomorrow, 21/11:
    Criciúma x Paysandu
    Internacional x São Caetano
    Flamengo x Botafogo
    Goiás x Vasco
    Ponte Preta x Atlético-PR
    Cruzeiro x Corinthians
    São Paulo x Juventude
    Coritiba x Santos
