Botafogo vs Atletico Mineiro Prediction 26 July 2017

Tournament: Copa do Brasil
Location: Estadio Independencia
Match date: 26.07.2017 at 23:30

On July 26 2017 at 23:30 in the upcoming regular game of the Copa do Brasil quarterfinal at the Estadio Independencia in Belo Horizonte the local Botafogo are playing against Atletico Mineiro.

Last time Botafogo won a big title was in the far 1995. Of course, they won the championship of their state. Since then they have always been the middle-peasants of the Campeonato Brasileiro. Now, with comparatively good, but still unstable results they manage to stay in the first half of the standings on the seventh position. In the previous season of the Copa do Brasil Botafogo were kicked-off in the round of 16 of it. This time they are already playing in the quarterfinal now. We must also admit that in the previous round of the competition Botafogo outplayed Sport Recife 3:2 after two games.

As fir Atletico Mineiro, they show worse results in the current season compared to the previous one. It’s not just difficult for them to win; it’s even difficult for them to avoid losses. In the latest five games Atletico Mineiro only gained 4 points of 15 possible. As a result, after 16 matches played in the current season of the national elite division Atletico Mineiro have 20 points and take the 13th place in the standings. Atletico Mineiro started their way in the Copa do Brasil in the round of 16 where they outplayed Parana 4:3.

The results of the latest games played between the teams show the advantage of Atletico Mineiro, in fact. Last time they met was on July 10 and the teams drew 1:1. As for the first leg game of the current stage of the Copa do Brasil, Atletico Mineiro managed to win in it. Anyway, Botafogo are more stable than their competitors as they haven’t lost for 6 matches in a row in the national championship. Anyway, it seems to us that the hosts will manage to avoid a loss this time.
