Botafogo vs Internacional Prediction

Botafogo had taken a trip the last match-day, to lock horns with Chapecoense. In the tightly-fought affair, either team tried their best to concentrate well on defense, and in the end, the guests won by a narrow scoreline of 0-1.

In the meantime, Internacional’s woes in the Serie A continued the prior game week too. They did have the home advantage but still failed to make anything of it. They conceded early in the first half to go under pressure, and then once more late into the latter half. The team was able to return one goal back in the 78th minute. But their efforts did not bear any further gains.

To deduce the result of this encounter between Botafogo, and Internacional, consider the form of the latter at the moment. Internacional were winless in 12 of their last 15 matches, and they conceded twice or more in four of the prior six.

The team also had failed to score in three of their previous six match-ups and did so in their last three on the road.

On the other hand, their counterparts won three of their former four matches and kept clean sheets in three of their preceding four. And at home, they won the past two games, and four of the prior six.

Finally, home teams have majorly dominated h2h clashes in recent years, and at this venue, Internacional have not won any such encounter since 2011.

Taking into account all these factors, expect a dominating performance from Botafogo to post three points on the board.
