MATCH PREVIEW

MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN

Athletico Paranaense have been outstanding this year and not even losing their coach affected the team, as it became clear in last weekend’s 1-0 away win against Sao Paulo which was also the third consecutive match in which they kept a clean sheet and their 7th unbeaten Brasileiro game in a row.

Botafogo are coming from a win as well – they beat Avai 2-0 at home last round – and that was enough to get them out of the relegation zone – they started this round placed two points above the Bottom-4 which isn’t much but can save them in the end.

Prior to last weekend’s win, though, they were coming from four consecutive losses and had scored only once in those four games, and it’s no coincidence that this win came from a match against the worst team in the league. So, now, against one of the best squads in the country, Botafogo will have bigger concerns to work on and give Athletico Paranaense a great chance of getting three more points with a home win.

 

SECOND PREDICTION: HILO - LOW

Athletico Paranaense already conceded 31 times in the league this year, but as seen before, their defensive record has improved a lot in the past couple of weeks, having kept a clean sheet in their last three matches, and now that they face one of the worst attacks in the league they will keep another clean sheet, which will help this match end with two or less goals, having a low score.

 

HEAD TO HEAD

There was only one draw in the last 13 times Athletico Paranaense played against Botafogo. It was a goalless match hosted by the former a couple of years ago.
