  • Played


Botafogo and Palmeiras meet at Estádio Nilton Santos, in a match for the 1st round of the Serie A. The recent head‑to‑head record favours the away team, since they have a record of 4 wins and 2 losses in the last 6 matches. The last head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 27‑11‑2017, and ended in a (2‑0) win by Palmeiras. The home advantage may play an important role in this match , since Botafogo presents significant differences between home and away results.

Analysis of Botafogo

The home team makes its debut in this edition of the competition, after having finished 10th last season. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses in away matches; against 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a away win against Audax Italiano by (1‑2). Botafogo has won 3, tied 3 and lost 4 of the last 10 home matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 15 matches, and have only turned the score around in 1. there is 1 period that stands out in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 7 of their 20 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Botafogo is a team that has twice won the Brazilian championship and gained great prominence this season for having won the Carioca championship title, surprising many. Botafogo made two home games for the Brazilian champions against Vasco da Gama, both had five goals, scored in the last four home games, showing that when it plays alongside its fans, its offensive sector has been very efficient. In the last six times that Botafogo faced Palmeiras at home, five of these games had more than 2.5 goals, showing that there is a tendency to goals when the two teams meet in Rio de Janeiro. We believe that once again this pattern can be repeated and this confrontation ends up with several goals.

Confirmed Lineup: R. Fernández, J. Carli, Marcinho, Igor Rabello, Gilson, Bochecha, Matheus Fernandes, Rodrigo Lindoso, Brenner, L. Valencia, Leandro Carvalho.
Coach: Alberto Valentim.

Analysis of Palmeiras

The away team makes its debut in this edition of the competition, after having finished 2nd last season. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses in away matches, with 23 goals scored and 14 conceded; against 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 31 goals scored and 13 conceded. In their last match, for the Copa Libertadores, they got a home tie against Boca Juniors by (1‑1). In the last 10 away matches Palmeiras has won 8, tied 1 and lost 1. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Palmeiras is one of the greatest teams of Brazilian football, it has won nine times the title of the Brazilian championship, the last one won in 2016 under the command of coach Cuca. Palmeiras was the vice-champion of São Paulo championship this year of 2018 and now wants to start the 2018 Brazilian championship on the right foot and make a good debut at Botafogo's stadium. Palmeiras became one of the most well-balanced teams financially, due to a very strong sponsorship that gave it the conditions to make good hires, because of all this the team has been suffering a great charge to get results, lost the Paulista championship title at Corinthians's stadium and this has further increased the pressure, now it will have to show strength and seek a reaction against Botafogo.

Confirmed Lineup: Jaílson, Antônio Carlos, Marcos Rocha, Thiago Martins, Diogo Barbosa, Lucas Lima, Bruno Henrique, Felipe Melo, Willian, Dudu, Keno.
Coach: Wesley Carvalho.

Betting suggestion:

The game between Botafogo and Palmeiras promises to be a great clash, the teams are considered very promising for this season, Botafogo was champion of Rio and Palmeiras has a great squad full of players, therefore many players with condition to shot for the goal and make good individual plays that can result in goals. We believe that for this match, there is a high probability of over 1.5 goals.
