On Thursday night, Chapecoense host Botafogo in the Brazilian Serie A, as the home side look to climb away from the relegation zone.

Chapecoense are currently 17th place in the table, in the relegation zone courtesy of an inferior goal difference to 16th place Sport Recife. There is light at the end of the tunnel for the home side, who have now won two of their last three league games, including a 1-0 win at Santos last time out.

The game against Santos followed a familiar trend for Chapecoense in recent Serie A games, as it was low scoring, with five of their last six league matches producing under 2.5 goals.

Chapecoense’s recent home record in Serie A is decent, as they have won four of their last six league games on home soil. Their recent home games in the Brasilian Serie A have been low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last three home matches.

Botafogo are 12th in the Serie A table and still hopeful of finishing in the Copa Libertadores spots this season. The visitors are just five points behind the Copa Libertadores qualifying berths and six behind the automatic spots.

Botafogo have helped their chances of a top-eight finish by recording back-to-back wins in the Brasilian Serie A against Corinthians and Flamengo.

The visitors have a poor recent record on their travels in Serie A, failing to win in 11 games while suffering seven defeats. The visitors have struggled for goals on their travels in Serie A, failing to score in four of their last six league outings. They have also conceded at least two goals in four of their last six away matches in Serie A.

Forebet predicts that the home side will record a victory in a low scoring encounter to aid their hopes of avoiding relegation.
