Botafogo RJ vs Atletico Mineiro prediction arrives ahead of the Copa Sudamericana Last-16 match at the Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos in Rio de Janeiro. Two Brazilian Serie A sides lock horns in what I expect to be a close-cut encounter so make sure to take a look at my match preview for best betting tips and correct score predictions.

Botafogo RJ vs Atletico Mineiro Betting Tips

The hosts are experienced a worrying dip in form ahead of the Thursday clash. Their three-match winning run from June was followed by the same number of games without a win. Furthermore, the Big Fire as they are called in Brazil, lost 2 of those games. As a result, the hosts are in urgent need of a win. However, achieving one against their in-form league leaders will be easier said than done.

On the other side, with two wins in last three matches, the visiting side travel to Rio de Janeiro on the back of a much better form. Atletico Mineiro are currently 4th in the Serie A, four points ahead of their seventh-placed rivals. They scored 10 goals more than Botafogo RJ, which puts them behind the driving wheel in my view. The stakes are too high, however, and I feel goals would be a much better fit for this game.

Botafogo RJ Latest Team News

The hosts have been pretty undisciplined during their latest 1-0 loss to Santos. Gilson ended up getting sent off but he will be at his coach’s disposal as this is a different competition. Furthermore, Carli was also booked in that match so the home side will have to put their temper in control. As his team’s top scorer with 3 goals to his name, Alex Menezes will be the player I will watch in this game.

Atletico Mineiro Latest Team News

Young forward Alerrandro has been a pleasant surprise for me. The 19-year-old striker scored 8 goals in nine Serie A appearances last season and he earned his rightful place in the starting lineup this season. However, he will need to raise the level of his game in order to maintain his place upfront. He scored only two goals thus far and I will be keeping an eye on him on Thursday.

Botafogo RJ vs Atletico Mineiro Correct Score Prediction

These two sides share a rich history between them, being two of the most prominent members of the Brazilian top flight. The H2H records have thus far been rather one-sides with the Rooster, as Atletico Mineiro are known in Brazil, winning the last two encounters. However, they haven’t been that successful on the road and I feel as if this match could go either way.
