Botafogo were eliminated in injury time from Bahia, in the midweek game for Copa Sudamericana. They won 2-1 (the same score of the first game where they were defeated), but they were unlucky in dying minutes and so they don't participate in the tournament anymore. In their last Serie A game they drew in home with Sao Paolo. Although they scored twice, they didn't managed to win. That outcome keeped them outside the relegation zone. Now Botafogo are in 12th place of the table with 33 points, at +3 from relegation zone. They are quite strong in home where they have registered 6 wins, 6 draws and only one defeat, with 15-10 goals overall.
Vasco didn't manage to get the three pointer from Parana the previous week, as they drew 1-1. They were playing with a man less from 57', so this result wasn't fairly bad. After this game, they're still in relegation zone, more specifically in 17th place, having 30 points along with Ceara. Chapecoense are at +1 above them. Their performance in away games is quite a disappointment, since they have a mediocre record, 6 draws, 7 defeats, 0 wins and 8-18 goals overall in 13 rounds! They will do their best to get a positive result from this game against Botafogo.
This is a battle to stay out of the relegation zone for Botafogo and Vasco. Both teams have the same quality and so the result will be judged in the details. Home team are pretty strong in home (6-6-1) in contrast to the guests, who don't perform good at all in away games (0-6-7). Based on teams' performance so far, the DC 1X at 1.35 will be my call.
