Botafogo vs Gremio Match Preview
Botafogo host Gremio for their Matchday 9 Serie A clash in great shape after connecting a four-match winning streak across competitions as they beat Sol de America (5-0 on aggregate) in Copa Sudamericana and built on the success with six points in league clashes against Vasco (1-0) and CSA (1-2).
Fogao will now be in for much more of a challenge but we’ve seen Eduardo Barroca’s men prove their worth since early May and we feel they’ll be very motivated to keep it up at Estadio Nilton Santos once again – proving unbeaten here in over four months.
Gremio come into the match on the back of a win of their own, where they beat Fortaleza (1-0) with a single goal from Pepe and bagged their third win in four outings across competitions. They’ve only seen Bahia (1-0) interrupt the streak but the fact it only extended their woes on the road will be more worrying.
Imortal Tricolor are yet to bag an away win in Serie A this term and we’ve seen them held off by Avai (1-1), Corinthians (0-0), and Juventude (0-0 in Copa do Brasil) as well as beaten by Ceara (2-1) and Bahia (1-0) along the way.
We feel Botafogo will be able to capitalize on such woes on the rivals end and we’ll back them to all three points on the day, where a Home win comes at an eye-catching 9/4 with Ladbrokes – as we feel it as more than a lively longshot at this point.
Indeed, Gremio have struggled to convert on the road and while they might have been a bit unlucky along the way, we feel Botafogo’s defence could prove too much for them too. We’ll thus also go for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 1/2 with bet365 and hope for another tough deadlock to break.
