Palmeiras vs Botafogo Prediction
The host has lost to their immediate neighbor above in their previous tie in the league. Despite that, they have accumulated 13 wins in the 24 league games until now. Also, they have lost only three times in the campaign so far. Their four-game unbeaten run in the last five league clashes was halted by their late loss mentioned earlier.
Moreover, they are still unbeaten in the 11 home ties in the competition so far. And are one of the four teams to achieve so in the league table. With their unbeaten dominance in the home games, it will seem nearly impossible for the visitors to obstruct their valiant streak in this season.
Besides that, the Big Fires had secured 9 wins and 12 losses in the last 24 league appearances in this season. Also, their previous match earned them a home win after a series of four losses in the form. Apart from that, their away run in the league is pathetic with a five-game winless trend lately. Moreover, they have only registered 3 wins in the 12 trips on the road in this campaign.
As such, the host will probably add another three points on their ledger leading the game in the early minutes of the bout.
