Fogao have been unbeatable here since the start of the new campaign and they’ve earned three wins and three draws in six league outings, regularly netting more goals in Rio de Janeiro. Marcos Paqueta will now be desperate for his men to impress once again and outclass the chasers, looking for a third consecutive clean sheet at this ground.

Chapecoense come into the match on the back of three consecutive draws but they have indeed struggled to score goals on the road, failing to do so in clashes against bottom-of-the-table rivals as they saw a 1-0 loss at Vitoria and a goalless draw at America Mineiro in their last two trips. Verdao could thus find it hard to bounce back and capitalize on the rivals’ recent woes, in what shapes to be a narrow matchup.

Botafogo vs Chapecoense: Head-to-head

Botafogo have bagged narrow wins in both of the sides’ two 2017 head-to-head matches.

Chapecoense have last beaten the rivals in November 2016, connecting a three-game winning streak back then.

We’ve seen two or fewer goals in four of the sides’ six encounters overall.

Botafogo vs Chapecoense: Prediction

We will now back Botafogo to turn this one their way too and bag their third consecutive win over the rivals, going for them to return to the winning ways at 1.90. We have seen them as a solid side at this ground and we do believe they can build on such records now.

We do feel they’ll have to base such success on a tough display at the back above all and we’ll now also back the home side to keep a clean sheet, which comes at 2.25. Botafogo have done so in both of their last two outings at Estadio Nilton Santos and Chapecoense should have troubles breaking them down.
