Today and Tomorrow we will still have some of the games from matchday 27th going on in the Brasileirão, but that doesn’t mean that we are not going to take the time to look into some of the exciting clashes that we will be getting this Weekend on matchday 28th.
The match between Botafogo and Athletico Paranaense will be quite an interesting one, as the Current leaders are trying to get as many points to keep themselves at the helm. Besides what happens tonight in their clash with America-MG, they should be feeling confident going forth.
Their opponents, Athletico Paranaense, are currently at the 9th spot in the table and will be facing a tough opponent tonight in Grêmio. Going back-to-back with top teams may prove to be tough in one week, but they are not going to back down without a fight.
Things get interesting, as one team tries to increase their lead, while the other one fights to climb up in the scoreboard.
Saturday, October 21st at 8:00 pm ET at the Olympic Stadium, in Rio de Janeiro
Athletico Paranaense +300
Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Botafogo?
Botafogo is getting back on track after their losing streak, and they will likely be running on all cylinders after their “warm up” clash against the bottom-placed America-MG.
They have been an offensive machine, with a goal differential of +26, and now, as they host the match, they got everything in their favor when the ball hits the field on Saturday.
Why Bet on Athletico Paranaense?
Ten days on from a 1-1 draw against Bragantino, which continued their winless start to October in the Brasileirão, Athletico returns from the international break with successive away games, one tonight against Grêmio, and now, as we focus on Saturday, they face first-placed Botafogo.
They will have to build up as much momentum as possible from the midweek match to pose a threat on the field to the top team on the board and, thankfully, they have been quite successful on their offensive approach.
Betting Analysis: Botafogo vs. Athletico Paranaense
This match is going to be quite fun to watch, but it could get interesting depending on tonight’s results for both teams.
One way or another, we are simply expecting Botafogo to get back on track and start working their way to increase their lead, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the match ends with a 3-1 score or something along those lines in favor of the home team.
Not to bash Athletico Paranaense, but when in good form, the leaders are relentless.
If you place $100 on a victory for Botafogo, you could get $90 for a total payout of $190.
