Sport Recife vs Botafogo Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 23rd April 2018
Sport Recife vs Botafogo – Brazilian Serie A: Sport: After a terrible debut on the competition, Sport hosts Botafogo
Trying to win again and kick away the crisis that has been affecting the club for some days.
Collecting failures in 2018, the team had a terrible performance on their debut in an important match against América-MG that can be one of their rivals in the fight to avoid relegation.
The manager Nelsinho Baptista kept mystery about the starting line-up he will utilize here, with the only guarantee being the fact that the young 21-years old goalkeeper Malison will make his debut in the elite of Brazilian football.
Botafogo: After an average result on the debut, where they drew at home with Palmeiras, Botafogo travels to Recife on their search to take advantage of the opponent’s poor moment of form to get their first victory.
The goalkeeper Gatito, that was in doubt, trained normally and should play and Mathieus Fernandez should also play. The team also decided to rest the attacking midfielder Luiz Fernando that hasn’t played for 3 weeks but that has now been attending practice.
Sport Recife vs Botafogo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Sport has been playing really poorly and collecting failures.
They failed to reach the final of the state championship, were eliminated catastrophically on the Copa do Brasil and started off the Brazilian Serie A getting white-washed by one of the teams that will probably fight to avoid relegation.
Taking advantage of this terrible moment of form and desperation of the home side,
I see a lot of value betting on Botafogo while protecting the draw, since the team has been playing well, recently winning the Cameponato Carioca,
and has a great prowess on the counter-attack, which can be a deadly weapon for them in this match.
