Palmeiras to maintain top spot in Serie A

On Saturday night, Botafogo host Palmeiras at the Estádio Nilton Santos, as the visitors look to maintain their lead at the top of Serie A.

Botafogo have made an inconsistent start to their campaign in the Brazilian top-flight. The home side has won three and lost two of their first five league outings so far this season. However, they could move to within a point of the visitors with a victory in this clash.

A 1-0 defeat last time out at Goias in Serie A ended a three-game winning run in the Brazilian top-flight for the team from Rio. The game was another low scoring one for Botafogo, as four of their first five league matches have produced under 2.5 goals.

Botafogo have a strong recent home record in the Brazilian top-flight, having won their last six league matches dating back to last season. Their recent games in Serie A have been relatively low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last eight league matches on home soil.

Palmeiras are currently top of Serie A, having picked up 13 points from a possible 15 in their opening five league games of the season.

The visitors have been difficult to beat in the Brazilian top-flight in recent seasons, as they are 28 games unbeaten in Serie A. A key to their good start this season is their defensive record, as the visitors have kept clean sheets in four of their five league matches.

Palmeiras are 13 games unbeaten on their travels in Serie A but have drawn four of their last six away games in the Brazilian top-flight. Their recent away games in Serie A have been low-scoring, as their last nine away matches have produced under 2.5 goals.

Forebet predicts that Palmeiras will maintain their good start to the campaign by recording a victory in a low scoring game.
