Botafogo vs Palmeiras Prediction 25 May 2019

Tournament: Brazilian Série A
Location: Estádio Nilton Santos
Match date: 25.05.2019 at 19:00

         A match between the two sides who both occupy the standings top positions and demonstrate high playing level is held this Saturday within the 6th game week of the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A in Rio de Janeiro.

         Botafogo started the championship with a loss against São Paulo 0:2 and also slipped against Goiás 0:1. Nevertheless, amongst these failures there have also been three wins in a row against Bahia 3:2, Fortaleza 1:0 and Fluminese 1:0, which got the Black-and-Whites to the 7th standings position. They currently have 9 points in their asset with 5:5 goal difference.

         Palmeiras, who are the reigning champions of Brazil, have jumped to the standings top on the spot with 13 points and 12:1 goal difference. The Green-and-Whites are performing especially well on their home field – they triumphed against Fortaleza 4:0, Internacional 1:0 and Santos 4:0. Scolari’s side at the same time managed to beat Atlético Mineiro 2:0 and draw CSA 1:1 in the away matches.

         Bookmakers consider the guests to be the obvious favorite in this fight, but they are going to have hard times playing against Botafogo, who are currently in a good shape. Both of the sides are going to play carefully in defense, so this match is not expected to be highly efficient.
