Botafogo vs Chapecoense for the Brazilian Serie A championship match on Tuesday at Nilton Santos Olímpico Stadium.
Botafogo currently occupying the tenth place with twenty-two points in the championship is more comfortable than its rival the Chapecoense who holds the seventeenth place and has only thirteen points.
Botafogo comes from a 2-0 away loss against Corinthians and Chapecoense comes from a 1-0 home win against Avai.
For Chapecoense, it is essential a win so they don’t fall further in the leaderboard, as one more defeat will not help the team.
As for Botafogo, the climb is also significant, because if Internacional misses the next game, Botafogo with the victory over Chapecoense can raise to the seventh or eighth place in the classification which will be an asset for the club.
The game should have several goals due to the need for victory for both teams, Botafogo can approach the International and Atletico – MG and Chapecoense to get further and further from the relegation zone and maybe approach their rival.
The Chapecoense without winning after eight consecutive games, and getting the first victory against Avai in the previous matchday and for a slim result only 1-0, I think they will go all out to score in the game with Botafogo.
Botafogo comes from a defeat in the last game, but with two victories in the previous matches, which means they should want to achieve the best possible result, that is one more victory.
Coaches should keep the same cast of players they used in previous games, and I think there will be little change.
With all this, I think that will be a game of difficult result, but I like the team of Botafogo better, so I bet on their win.
