Botafogo vs Vitoria Preview and Predictions

Botafogo vs Vitoria
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 27 May 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos (Rio de Janeiro).

Botafogo and Vitoria will face each other on Sunday evening in the clash of the 7th round in Brazilian Serie A.

Home side opened the season with average results as they are sitting on the 11th place on the table. They booked two wins in the last four clashes and their matches were pretty tight in general. Alberto Valentim’s side has been performing very well at home ground where they’ve allowed only one point in three games to their opponents. They also scored the majority of their goals in front of their fans.

Vitoria are one point below their rivals and after a bad start and three straight defeats, they managed to tie two victories in a row. Neilton and the lads have been involved in high scoring matches as they are one of the most productive sides, while their defence is allowing too many goals. After two defeats at away grounds, the visitors managed to celebrate a win against another side from Rio de Janeiro – Vasco da Gama.

Botafogo vs Vitoria: Head-to-head

It is very interesting that the home crowd haven’t seen a win of their team since 2015. In their last five matches Botafogo celebrated twice, while Vitoria won in one occasion and all those wins were booked when playing away from home. Their last two clashes were very efficient with at least four goals scored per game.

Botafogo vs Vitoria: Prediction

This one is going to be very interesting clash and we should see a good display of both teams. Botafogo celebrated a home win only once in the last four attempts and it wouldn’t be surprising if this one ends with another draw.

Both sides have been pretty productive in their head to head clashes and the fans were able to see goals in both nets very often. This happened four times in the last five occasions and we are expecting the same in this clash as well.
