Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 14th June 2017
Kick-off at 23:30 UK/ 0:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Barradao (Salvador).
Vitoria will host Botafogo in high spirits after clinching their first victory in the new Serie A campaign last weekend when they shocked Atletico Mineiro 2-0 on the home patch.
The Barra’s Lion will be looking to make it two on the trot on Wednesday when they will try and take advantage of Botafogo’s slide in form over the last couple of weeks.
Alexandre Gallo can breathe easier after his team finally managed to score some goals in the new season.
Prior to the clash with Atletico Mineiro, the Barra’s Lion netted only a single goal in five matches, but Kieza and Neilton ended this negative streak.
Botafogo failed to keep the good form in Copa Libertadores going and transfer it to the domestic league where they currently hold the 12th position.
Jair Ventura’s side is winless in last four outings in all competitions as the latest failure came on Sunday when The Lone Star played only a 1-1 draw with Coritiba on the home patch.

Vitoria vs Botafogo: Prediction
We don’t expect to enjoy a beauty since none of the two teams has been especially efficient in the final third at the start of the season.
The visitors have more quality in their squad, but we’ll be careful with the stakes since Vitoria will enter the match in an improved confidence after the weekend’ win.
