Botafogo take on visitors Vitoria on the Brazilian Serie A matchday 7. The match will be played in Rio de Janeiro at Estádio Nilton Santos on Sunday, June 12.
Botafogo made their return to elite Brazilian division from Serie B and they need some time to adjust their football to new level. The hosts have gained only four points in six matches this season with 3-8 aggregate score. Moreover, the team lost their last three matches with zero goals scored and five allowed. Three home matches gained the team three points with 2-3 goal difference.

Vitoria, another promoted side, have much better start of the season and show quite consistent results. The visitors have gained 8 points in six matches with 7-9 goal difference and sit on the 10th position in the league standings. However, three away matches got the team only one point with 2-6 goal difference. On top of that, Vitoria are unable to win in their last five matches on the road since the middle of April, recording two draws and three defeats in these games.
The opponents played in Serie B last season and Botafogo recorded wins in both fixtures, 2-0 and 2-1. Neither of the teams show high scoring this season and we can expect another low-scoring result in the upcoming match.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
