Botafogo Rio de Janeiro
Botafogo played the previous match in the championship on its own field and beat Fluminense with a score of 1:0. Victor Cuesta scored the only goal in the winning team. This victory was the sixth in seven matches since the start of the season. Now the team of Luis Castro occupies the first place in the table. On May 26, Botafogo beat Cesar Vallejo on the road (3:2) in the group stage match of the South American Cup.
"America" is in the penultimate place in the table. In the previous championship match, the club from Minas Gerais met with Fortaleza and beat the opponent with a score of 2:1. Breno Cascardo and Felipe Azevedo scored goals as part of the winning team. This victory was the first for Wagner Mancini's wards since the start of the championship.
Statistics and figures:
- Botafogo is the favorite of the match according to bookmakers;
- In nine head-to-head matches, Botafogo won two victories, America - four.
- The previous meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 0:0.
Botafogo has not been playing well with America Mineiro lately, but it seems to me that this time the championship leader will score three points. In addition, I think that Botafogo will score more than one goal.
