CS Alagoano vs Botafogo RJ
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 9th June 2019
Kick-off at 23.00 UK/ 00.00 CET
Venue: Estádio Rei Pelé (Maceió).
CSA has not yet recovered from their loss against Atletico. They had the misfortune to challenge the latter on the road the last day. Right away it was obvious that CSA was having a bad outing. They conceded an early yellow card, which was followed by another just four minutes later.
And to pile pressure on them, by the 23rd minute, CSA was down by 2-0. Alagoano did try to hit back and bring some parity into the game, but the hosts were up to the task.
Later in the second half, Atletico added two more goals to complete the misery of the visitors. As an added insult, all four goals had different scorers.
Botafogo maybe placed seventh in the table, but they do have a game in hand. The team is trailing from the top-most spot in league standings by just four points. If the team is able to take advantage of this tie against a relegation-battler, Botafogo would find themselves in the Copa Libertadores spots.
Botafogo proved their mettle in similar circumstances against Vasco in their last tie. At home, they recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over visitors, Vasco, to post three valuable points on the board. The goal took some time to come, but it sure did arrive late in the 57th minute.

CS Alagoano vs Botafogo RJ Prediction
Botafogo will try their best to make use of their game in hand, which would see them rise in the table to the top-most spot. They were unbeaten in 17 of their last 22 games and won six of their last eight as well. On the road, the team recorded wins in two of their last three attempts.
CSA, on the other hand, has registered just a single win from their last eight games and managed to score just two goals from their last seven matches combined.
While the fact that CSA has a stronghold at home might bother the visitors, keep in mind that Botafogo has posted double the points that of CSA, with a fewer match played. Expect the guests to try their best, and return without a loss at any cost. The fact that both teams are struggling in front of the goal leads us to our next tip.
CSA has scored just two goals from their seven games, while Botafogo has recorded six from their six ties so far. By all means, expect a low-scoring game this Sunday.
