At home, the host has been unbeaten in the last four fixtures. Their previous encounter with Cruzeiro at home ended in a goalless draw. The host rained 9 shots on target in the ninety minutes.

Santos FC’s Soteldo scored a brace breaking up the Botafogo defense in the previous trip on the road. The 4-1 loss against Santos added to the 11 loss in 16 league away fixtures.
As such, the host has more chance of winning the game and also in scoring a couple of goals.
