Flamengo vs Botafogo Prediction 23 August 2020

Tournament: Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A
Location: Maracana Stadium
Match date: 23.08.2020 at 15:00

The program of the fifth round of the Brazilian Serie A will give us an interesting confrontation between Flamengo and Botafogo. Flamengo are the current champions of the league and still we don't think that their superiority will be so obvious this time. 

Despite the status of the current champions of the country, Flamengo don't really show any outstanding results this season. After games with Atletico Mineiro (0: 1), Atletico Goyanens (0: 3), Curitiba (1: 0) and Gremio (1: 1), the Red-Blacks found themselves in a humiliating 16th position with four points in the asset.

Botafogo scored five points and are seventh with the statistics of goals scored and missed 3: 2. Not a bad result for a team that usually doesn't pretend to be anything serious. Previously, the Black and Whites won 2: 1 against Atletico Mineiro, and also shared the points 1: 1 with Bragantino and 0: 0 with Fortaleza.

Bookmakers overestimate the capabilities of Flamengo, who are currently in a serious crisis. In this case, I will give a slight advantage to their more stable opponent in terms of play.
