Botafogo have been just as unpredictable and they’ve earned just one point in their last three outings, sitting two behind Vasco despite a game in hand. They’ve had even more troubles on the road and saw losses at Cruzeiro, America Mineiro, and Sao Paulo since early May, which could prove even more worrying for the travelling fans.

Gigante da Colina will now hope to capitalize on their goalscoring woes and put on another confident defensive display in front of the home crowd, as the visitors don’t look to be able to put on consistent challenges away from home. This could prove a crucial clash to climb the table and both sides will be very motivated.

Vasco da Gama vs Botafogo: Head-to-head

  • The sides have met four times earlier this year already, with thriller clashes all the way.
  • We’ve seen away wins on all of those occasions, where Botafogo ultimately turned it their way on penalties.
  • We’ve seen a high total of 16 goals in their last four matchups as well.

Vasco da Gama vs Botafogo: Predictions

We will now back Vasco to take revenge and build on a solid performance against Parana, going for a Home win at 2.20. They have looked confident at the back and struggling Botafogo could be a great chance to finally start climbing the table and connecting a positive streak.

We do believe we’ll see defensive outfits on both ends on the day, though, and we don’t see this as a thriller we’ve seen in the sides’ recent head to head clashes. With that in mind, we’ll now also stick our necks out for Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.90, which does seem a solid bet to get behind as well!
