Botafogo vs Coritiba Prediction & Match Preview

Botafogo RJ vs Coritiba
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 3 September 2020
Kick-off at 0:30 UK/ 1:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos (Rio de Janeiro).

Rio de Janeiro will witness the clash between two mid-table sides, fighting it out for the three points in yet another Serie A fixture. Having the home advantage will put the host in front, but Coritiba is coming in hot with their winning streak, which will make it tougher for Botafogo in the encounter.

The 0-2 loss at home against Internacional hindered Botafogo’s unbeaten streak for four games in the last league clash. The Coxa, on the other hand, will visit on the back of a two-game winning streak in the campaign, following a 1-0 home win against Sport Recife in the schedule.

Botafogo RJ vs Coritiba Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Three of their recent four fixtures have ended in a draw.
  • Their previous encounter gave a 2-3 away win for The Big Fire.
  • Both teams have scored in only two of the last six clashes.
  • The host has recorded three of the last five overall wins.

Botafogo RJ vs Coritiba Prediction

Botafogo will play at the comforts of home, and they have only one win from their 5 clashes in the league this season so far. However, their lone win came at home, which forced us to consider their use of home ground advantage in the game.

Coritiba is not any better as they have only two wins in their six appearances until now. Since both the wins came within the last two matches, it is likely to see the visitors trouble the host with their form. But ‘O Glorioso’ hasn’t lost to the visitor at home since 2004 in their h2h meetings.

Based on the stats, the home win is the ideal choice for the game but the safest bet will be a draw no bet over Botafogo to yield decent returns. With the chance of a couple of goals in ninety minutes, the tip for over 1.5 goals will also come in handy for the punters.
