However, Corinthians could prove more of a challenge despite quite an unpredictable spell of form ahead of the break, where they earned just two points in four games. They’ve suffered losses to Flamengo and Bahia on the road and held Santos and Vitoria to draws, where Osmar Loss’ men proved a rock-solid defensive side but failed to shine up front.

Timao have been a much tougher side to beat here and we thus don’t feel they’ll have troubles picking their team spirits here, especially with the break behind them. However, there’s a lot to prove and we now expect another very narrow head-to-head clash in Sao Paulo!

Corinthians vs Botafogo RJ: Head-to-head

The home sides have won the contests in all of the sides’ last five head-to-head matches.

Botafogo have bagged a narrow 2-1 win in their last matchup back in October 2017.

We’ve come to get used to very narrow contest for points and we now expect another such occasion.

Corinthians vs Botafogo RJ: Prediction

We’ll back Corinthians to turn the home clash their way once again, hoping to see another great display at the back and going for a Home win at 1.85. We’ve seen them rock-solid at this ground and we do believe they have what it takes to secure the points this time around.

Botafogo will be no easy nut to crack, seeing just one of their last three clashes end with three or more goals. We’re used to narrow clashes between the sides and with that in mind, we’ll now also back Under 2.5 Goals FT once again – which comes at 1.60 and looks like more of a generous banker bet.

Corinthians vs Botafogo RJ: Bet Tips

  • Home win @ 1.85
  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.60.
