Botafogo vs Atletico GO – Brazilian Serie A: Trying to recover from their loss at home to Atlético-PR…
Botafogo hosts the last-place team Atlético-GO at the Nilton Santos stadium and they need to win at any cost. On the other hand, a draw could seal the relegation of the visitors and all of this tends to lighten up the match.
Still a bit shaky, Botafogo certainly don’t plan any other result than the win here, and it can’t be any different because the fight for the Libertadores’ spots is getting tighter and tighter. Despite the advantage, the team can’t slip up or else it might end up costing them.
They are the 9th best attack in the competition and they have even better numbers playing at home, where they are the 5th best in the league, which means they have everything to put the pressure on and go out looking for goals.
The team doesn’t have any change going into this match, with the only possible absence being their full back Vitor Luiz, in case he is not able to recover in time, which would lead to his replacement by Gilson.
Practically relegated, Atlético-GO needs to win every match and root against their opponents on the relegation fight on these 4 last rounds of the league.
Internally, the team has already accepted relegation and they’ve been playing more loose on the last 2 matches, scoring 4 goals and producing more on the attack, which opens up more spaces for their opponents.
The team only has the 18th best attack in the competition but those numbers improve a lot when the team plays away from home, where they are the 10th best attack, averaging 1 goal scored*match, which would be really useful for our bet. On the other hand, they have the worst defence of the competition, which is also a crucial factor for our bet.
Botafogo vs Atletico GO – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With such a productive attack as hosts, facing the worst defence in the competition, my idea was taking advantage of the Botafogo – Team Goals Over 1.5.
But due to the team’s need to win, the odds on that selection are too low.
Analysis Atlético’s last matches, we can see that the team is playing more freely, without so much responsibility, which means I found a good opportunity on the Over 2.5 goals, since the only outcome that would cover my initial bet and not this one would be the 2-0.
