Botafogo vs Atletico PR – Brazilian Serie A :This Saturday, Botafogo hosts Atlético Paranaense at the Engenhão on a Brazilian Serie A’s match…
Atlético Paranaense needs to start taking some care, despite the good advantage they have over the relegation zone.
At the moment, the distance to Sport Recife is 6 points, which means the danger of relegation is not completely dismissed.
Atlético even had a moment of good form after the arrival of their new manager Fabiano Soares, where they mounted a good recovery and played good football.
But that positive streak didn’t last. Winless in the last 3 rounds, Atlético is coming off a loss against Corinthians and are now out of the fight for a possible spot in next season’s Copa Libertadores.
Atlético PR has 42 points and occupies the 13th position on the league table.

Botafogo has put an end to their bad moment of form with the triumph over Sport away at Ilha do Retiro.
The team from Rio de Janeiro had a spot on the next Copa Libertadores as their main objective but they were winless on the last 2 rounds and had witnessed their rivals overlapping them in the league table.
The win over Sport has put them team in the top 6 once again, which gives them access to that desire Libertadores’ spot. Botafogo is currently 5th in the league table with 51 points gained.
Playing at home, Botafogo has 9 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, having scored 27 goals and conceded 20 up until this point.
Botafogo vs Atletico PR – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Botafogo is a team that scores and concedes a lot of goals. Even at home. The team has the 4th best attack at home in the Serie A.
But at the same time, they are the 6th worst defence, along with the teams from the bottom of the table.
I believe that this pattern should prevail. Atlético is an annoying team playing away from home and should be able to score here.
