CSA – Can CSA remain unbeaten at home?

Newcomers to Serie A, CSA, have made an ordinary start to life in the Brazilian top flight as they currently occupy a place in the bottom four and have managed just 1 win out of their first 7 matches of the new domestic season.

That win came in the shape of a 1-0 home win against Goias but were quickly sent back to reality with a resounding 4-0 defeat away at Atletico Mineiro which has dumped Sunday evening’s hosts back into early relegation trouble.

Nevertheless, despite this slow start and having lost 3 of their first 4 matches away from home, CSA’s results at home have proved to be of a more stubborn nature as the hosts still remain unbeaten at their Estádio Rei Pelé having recorded back-to-back draws with Palmeiras 1-1 and Santos 0-0 along with the aforementioned win over Goias.

This is CSA’s first ever season in Serie A and have never played Botafogo before in the league but they did grab a 1-1 draw in their last encounter at home against them in the Copa do Brasil back in 2007.

Botafogo Prediction – Can Botafogo move up into top six?

Botafogo moved themselves up into 7th place after last week’s 1-0 home win over Serie A strugglers, Vasco da Gama and the visitors will be looking for another similar result against another team who are occupying a bottom four place in the shape of CSA on Sunday evening.

Botafogo have won 4 of their last 5 matches overall in the Brazilian top flight with wins accrued against Bahia, Fortaleza, Fluminense and Vasco da Gama, but it should be noted that 3 of these 4 wins were registered at their Estádio Nilton Santos in Rio de Janeiro.

The visitors have been far from convincing though on their travels so far this season as they’ve collected just 1 win out of their first 3 away matches of the new term, which was a narrow 1-0 win at 16th placed Fluminense.

Defeats at Sao Paulo and Goias perhaps show they’ve some way to go if they’re to make a serious challenge for a top four finish as their early overall away record reads a disappointing 1-0-2 1/3.


Key-Facts – CSA v Botafogo

  • CSA still remain unbeaten at home in this season’s Serie A
  • Botafogo have won just 1 of their first 3 away matches of the season
  • In their last encounter at home, CSA held Botafogo to a 1-1 draw


Betting Tips Verdict

CSA are expected to defend here and perhaps hit Botafogo on the break or from a set-piece. Use the handicap on the hosts in this one.
