Botafogo SP vs Parana Clube for the Brazilian Serie B championship match on Tuesday at Santa Cruz Stadium.
In Ribeirão Preto, the Botafogo SP team will play to recover from the last mediocre results and get closer to the G4.
Oscillating a lot in the last few rounds, Botafogo remains out of G4, but only three points below, and in this game will try to achieve their third straight victory as the home team and in this case, should have the favouritism and support of their fans which in many games can be super important.
Their attack is what causes the most concern, as with only two goals scored in the last four matches, also in the previous home match where they were favourites.
Botafogo has done a median campaign, with only thirteen points in eight games, four wins, one draw and five losses. Let’s say it is not a satisfactory result.
Paraná has been going for a long time amid so many ups and downs and after a great start already accumulates seven games without winning.
If that was not enough, they also face an economic crisis that affects the club because, at this moment, there are many players dissatisfied with salary issues. All this affects the desire to play and obviously the club.
Parana’s attack situation is even worse than Botafogo’s, with only one goal scored in that period without winning. And in away games already have three defeats in a row while their coach Matheus Costa tries his best to find solutions to what is happening in the club.
As neither team is in great shape and anything can happen, I still see significant favouritism with Botafogo, who comes from a more auspicious moment, despite being defeated in the last game and also because they will play at home.
I’m going for the their win because the odd is good.
