Contributor’s Pick

According to Botafogo RJ vs Chapecoense H2H Stats, Botafogo have won two and lost three of their five previous games against Chapecoense.

While there have been under 2.5 goals scored in eight of Chapecoense AF’s last nine league games, Botafogo RJ have scored at least 2 goals in their last 5 matches in the Brasileirao Serie A.

Although Botafogo are the higher ranked side going into this game, Chapecoense came into their own before the international break and would look to carry forward their momentum. While Chapecoense are dangerous from setpiece situations, Botafogo have been lethal in counter-attacks and it should be an interesting tactical battle.

It should be a closely contested affair but Botafogo are likely to win 2-1 tonight.
