Alberto Valentim’s men will have a fantastic opportunity to get more points on board when they take on the rock-bottomed Ceara on Wednesday evening at Estadio Nilton Santos. The visitors were unable to arrest the slump in their form on Sunday evening when they fell 0-1 at home to Cruzeiro. Ceara thus extended the horrendous start to the campaign making it three draws and six losses and they are still one of only two teams without a win in the competition so far.

Botafogo vs Ceara: Head-to-head

  • Botafogo were the more successful outfit in the shirt history of head to head matches against Ceara.
  • Nevertheless, Vozao were unbeaten on last two occasions in fixtures against Botafogo back in the 2015 Serie B campaign.
  • Last two H2H affairs between the two sides saw just one goal scored.

Botafogo vs Ceara Predictions

We doubt Botafogo will miss out on this chance to make it back-to-back wins and get their Serie A campaign back on track on Wednesday when they host the weakest opposition in the league. The visitors will need a miracle to stay in the elite for longer than a year according to the horrendous start to the season and we just can’t see them ending the negative thread against the highly-motivated Botafogo side here.

The home win is a banker at 1.61, while you can alternatively back the hosts to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.10 knowing Ceara failed to find the back of the net in last four games in all competitions.

Botafogo vs Ceara Betting Tips

  • Botafogo to win @ 1.61
  • Botafogo to keep a clean sheet @ 2.10.
