Botafogo - Form Analysis: Improved since mid-April

"The Lone Star" has been inconsistent this season, experiencing fluctuations. The most significant downturn occurred in the first half of last month when they faltered in the Copa Libertadores, losing to both Atletico Junior and LDU Quito (although they qualified by beating Aurora and Red Bull Bragantino), and in their domestic arena, they started in Serie A with a 2-3 loss against Cruzeiro after winning the Carioca state championship. However, they quickly turned things around in Brasileirao, defeating Universitario 3-1 at home in the third round.

LDU Quito - Form Analysis: A decent year so far

"La Bordadora" became champions of Peru for the twelfth time in 2023. They are currently among the leaders in Serie A, as the league is gaining momentum. In Copa Libertadores, their first-round results are noteworthy: they won their only home match against the Brazilians, drew with Junior, and only lost 1-2 to Universitario in Lima despite leading in the first half.
