Botafogo vs Barcelona S.C. Prediction 3 May 2017

Tournament: Copa Libertadores
Location: Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos
Match date: 03.05.2017 at 01:45

On May 3 2017 at 01:45 in Rio de Janeiro in the regular game of the fourth round of the Copa Libertadores at the Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos the local Botafogo host Barcelona S.C. from Ecuador.

 The preseason is almost over in Brazil. This period appeared to be pretty successful for Botafogo as they made it to the play-offs of the Campeonato Carioca where they lost to Flamengo in the quarterfinal. Botafogo also take part in the Copa de Brazil where they outplayed Sport Recife in the round of 16 of it. We must also admit that Botafogo are doing pretty well in the Copa Libertadores as they have 7 points after three matches played and the first place in the table of the group.

As for Barcelona S.C., they are the current champions of the Ecuador Serie A. anyway, in the first half of the first stage of the national elite division in the current season Barcelona showed a lot of controversial results and not all of them were positive at all. They gained 18 points in 11 matches they have already played and it let them take the 5th place in the standings 6 points below the leaders. Yet, they manage to show comparatively good results in the international competition Copa Libertadores as they outplayed Atletico Nacional and Estudiantes and drew Botafogo.

The upcoming game will be the second one played between the teams. We must also remind you that in that first game between them the teams showed almost equal performance and it ended in a deserved draw 1:1. We must also admit that Botafogo won most of their home matches even if they didn’t do it confidently enough. We think that most of the people would agree with the fact that Botafogo won’t lose in the upcoming match and it will let them solve the issue of making it to the play-offs of the competition.
