Posted August 5th, 2022 | By: Tom Dunstan

Competition: Brazil Serie A

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 3/5 @ 888sport

In what could turn out to be another cagey affair from Brazil’s Serie A this weekend, Botafogo will host Ceara on Saturday night.

Starting with the hosts, last seen putting in another toothless display, Botafogo find themselves in the midst of an extended blip. In their 20 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded seven wins, three draws and 10 defeats, scoring 19 and conceding 25 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 24, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat 12th in the standings and with just their goal difference keeping them in the Copa Sudamericana spots. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 1-0 loss away at Corinthians, Botafogo have lost five of their last six matchups across all formats. Likewise, along with drawing a blank in each of those five defeats, it should also be noted that Saturday’s hosts have seen each of their last seven fixtures finish with under 2.5 goals.

As for the visitors, also last seen putting in a toothless display, Ceara find themselves in a similar position to Saturday’s opponents. In their 20 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded five wins, nine draws and six defeats, scoring 21 and conceding 21 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 24, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat 14th in the standings and just with their goal difference keeping them below Botafogo. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 1-0 loss away at Sao Paulo, Ceara have lost each of their last three matchups across all formats. Likewise, managing to record just a single strike in any of those three consecutive defeats, it should also be noted that three of their last four fixtures have finished with under 2.5 goals.
