Both teams are finding it hard to post some meaningful points on the board, and that sets their default setting as – desperate for points.

Botafogo vs Corinthians Prediction

Corinthians had the home advantage the last day, but could not make it count against Internacional. Despite persistent efforts, they had to settle for a 0-0 scorecard. Meanwhile, Botafogo succeeded in converting their home fixture to three points, against Avai, with a 2-0 scoreline.

This weekend, it seems that Botafogo holds the cards. The reason being home teams have performed predominantly well in recent h2h clashes. To quote a stat, the previous eight h2h clashes in a row have seen the hosts of the day winning, and at this venue, Corinthians lost their prior five games.

In addition, Corinthians have been winless in their former six match-ups on the road and remained so in eleven of their last twelve such fixtures.

Finally, Botafogo have suffered in away games, and they have no other go but to make their home appearances count.

Taking these findings under the microscope, rightfully anticipate a good performance from the hosts of the day, Botafogo.
