Fluminense vs Botafogo Prediction 13 July 2017

Tournament: Campeonato Brasileiro Série A
Location: Maracana Stadium
Match date: 13.07.2017 at 01:00

On July 13 2017 at 01:00 in the upcoming regular game of the 13th matchday of the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A at the Maracana Stadium the local Fluminense are playing against their guests Botafogo.

It’s pretty surprising for us that Fluminense managed to avoid losses in their three latest games despite the fact that there are a lot of injured players in their squad. The draw against Bahia in the latest match was the third one in a row and the fourth one in the latest five matches. We must remind you that not long before that match Fluminense drew Chapecoense, Sao Paulo and Flamengo and outplayed Avai in the away match.

As for Botafogo, their results got noticeably worse lately. After the victory against Vasco da Gama on June 22 Botafogo lost to Avai and Corinthians and drew Atletico Mineiro. As a result, Botafogo have 16 points gained in their 12 matches played since the beginning of the championship, which let them take the 11th place in the standings with 13:12 goal difference.

The teams have already played five games against each other in the last few years. The results of these matches show a small advantage of Botafogo, in fact. Last time they met was at the end of March and at the beginning of April this year in their State championship. Fluminense won in one of these games while Botafogo won in the other. Fluminense are playing at home this time and they seem to be pretty confident in such games. That’s why it seems to us that the hosts are more likely to avoid a loss in the forthcoming match.
