Date: Wednesday, 10 October 2018
Kick-Off at 01:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Nilton Santos (Rio de Janeiro).
Derby match between Botafogo and Vasco da Gama is going tom wrap up the action in the Brazilian Serie A.
The hosts are having an average campaign as they are sitting on the 12th place being too far from challenging one of the Copa Liberatores spots. They are in a fine series as home side booked seven points in the last three rounds.
Ze Ricardo’s side lost just once in the last five occasions in the national championship, however they still need to be very careful as Botafogo are just three points ahead of the relegation zone. They’ve lost just once when playing in front of the home crowd, but they were also involved in high number of draw matches.
Vasco da Gama are in a tricky position as they are right below the red line, however Ceara, who are on the safe spot, have the same number of points. The visitors haven’t lost in the last four rounds, but they managed to celebrate just once.
Although Yago Pikachu and the lads have been fairly productive so far, their bad defending brought them into a tough position.
Vasco da Gama have been putting poor performances at away grounds as they still haven’t managed to get back home with all three points.
Botafogo vs Vasco da Gama: Head-to-head
It is very interesting that the visiting team managed to book a victory in the last five head to head clashes of these two sides.
In the last eight encounters, both teams managed to celebrate four times each while their clashes have been more efficient than usual.
Botafogo vs Vasco da Gama: Prediction
This is going to be a very exciting clash as the stake is high for these two sides. Both teams have been playing pretty well recently and we believe the fairest outcome in this one should be a draw.
Both sides have been involved in high scoring matches lately and they should be able to continue that streak. They improved their attacking work recently and the crowd should be able to see goals in both nets.
