Corinthians take on the visitors Botafogo RJ at “Arena Corinthians” in the round 11 of the Brazilian Serie A. The game will be played in Sao Paulo on Sunday, July 2nd.
Corinthians have not been beaten since the 19th of March across 24 encounters in a row. During that streak “Coringaos” got 14 victories and 10 draws. After 10 matchdays of the Serie A, Corinthians are leading in the standings with 26 points earned and 18-5 goal difference being four points ahead of the closest chaser. The side participated in five clashes in front of its supporters resulting in 13 points gained, 10 goals for and three goals against.

On the contrary, Botafogo RJ lost their two recent matches: 0:2 to Avai in the Serie A and 0:1 to Atletico-MG in the Copa do Brasil. After 10 rounds “Fogao” sits on the seventh place in the table of the elite division with 15 points taken and 12-10 goal difference. Jair Ventura’s team participated in five away clashes in the Serie A recording five points earned, four goals for and five goals against in them.
In 10 recent years Botafogo RJ gained favourable head-to-heads statistics against Corinthians. However, this season “Coringaos” showed furious play, especially in face of their fans, thus, I presume that the hosting side will win in the upcoming battle and prolong their undefeated streak up to impressive 25 encounters, but, what is more important, they will stay the Series A leaders.
Prediction for the match: Corinthians to win.
