THE PREDICTION

Vasco da Gama have won just once in five league matches since they opened the season with three consecutive victories and they face a real challenge in their bid to return to winning ways in this derby match against Botafogo. The hosts have certainly been the draw specialists in the league so far this season with six of their first eight matches of the new campaign having finished level. Drawing so many matches will of course bring plenty of ‘what might have beens’ but it is worth noting that their only defeat has come against the league leaders Internacional. It’s difficult to side with either team winning in this encounter and a draw would be no surprise - five of their last six meetings have contained two goals or less and it might be worth having a wager on this match having under 2.5 goals also.
