Palmeiras will welcome Botafogo to Allianz Parque for a matchday 10 fixture in Brazil Serie A. The last meeting on 2nd February 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met twelve times in the most recent seasons. Palmeiras has won 7 matches, and Botafogo triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.00 goals, while both teams score 42% of the time.
Palmeiras’s last game in the Brazil Serie A against Atlético Mineiro at home ended in a 0-0 draw. They were lucky to collect one point since they played less with the ball and attempted fewer shots.
Botafogo’s recent game against Goiás ended in a home 0-0 draw. One point was the maximum they could have won with that display.
So far, Palestra plays better on the road than at home. They win 2.00 points per away game on average compared to 1.60 points at home. Alviverde’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 60% of home games.
Botafogo has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Fogão has collected 1.60 points on average per away game, compared to 1.00 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Botafogo kept a clean sheet in just 20% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Verdão is currently unbeaten at home in four games. Since the start of the season, they have lost at home on just one occasion.
Estrela Solitária failed to win in two consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Thursday and win against Verdão.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Palmeiras wins on average 1.60 points per home game, compared to 1.60 points per away game for Botafogo. My prediction is Palmeiras to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.2 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 30% of Palmeiras’s home and Botafogo’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
