Botafogo – Can Botafogo win three on the trot?

Botafogo have lifted themselves up into 4th place on the Brazilian top flight ladder thanks to winning 5 of their last 6 matches in Serie A with victories chalked up against Bahia, Fortaleza, Fluminense, Vasco da Gama and CSA.

The hosts now occupy a top four position which means automatic qualification for a Libertadores spot, and although there’s still a long way to go of this domestic season, Botafogo look in good shape to make a serious challenge for a top four finish at the moment.

Botafogo have impressed on home turf so far this season as they still possess a 100% winning record at their Estádio Nilton Santos with a record of 3-0-0 5/2 which includes wins over Bahia, Fortaleza and Vasco da Gama, while the bigger picture shows that the hosts have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 13 matches on home turf.

Although Gremio won the last encounter between these two teams 4-0 last time out, this was at home, while Botafogo are unbeaten in their last 4 meetings at home against tonight’s opponents, Gremio, winning 3 and drawing 1 of these 4 encounters.

Gremio Prediction – Can Gremio break their drought on the road?

Gremio make their way to Rio de Janeiro on the back of a 1-0 home win over strugglers Fortaleza last time out in the Brazilian top flight which will give the visitors confidence of taking something from their trip to face an in-form Botafogo outfit here on Wednesday night.

However, although Gremio have posted recent back-to-back wins on home turf at their Arena do Grêmio in Porto Alegre, they’ve so far failed to transfer this form on their travels this season as they’ve drawn 2 and lost 2 in their first four matches on the road this season.

An away record of 0-2-2 2/4 includes draws at Avai and Corinthians along with back-to-back defeats at Ceara 2-1 and a 1-0 loss at Bahia, while the visitors have gained just 3 away wins out of their last 18 matches on their travels, so they look to be up against it in this encounter.

In addition, Gremio have failed to beat Botafogo in their last 4 visits to the Estádio Nilton Santos so the chances of all three points here look slim.


Key-Facts – Botafogo v Gremio

  • Botafogo have won 5 of their last 6 matches in Serie A
  • Botafogo are unbeaten in their last 4 meetings at home against Gremio
  • Gremio have gained just 3 away wins out of their last 18 matches on their travels


Betting Tips Verdict

Botafogo with home advantage and a winning momentum behind them should account for Gremio here.
