Botafogo take on the visitors Bahia in the round 21 match of Brazilian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, August 27th at Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos (Rio de Janeiro).
Botafogo continues to pave its way towards the championship title, and despite occasional draws in their recent performances, the black and white team still holds a considerable lead, with an +11 point advantage over their closest pursuers. In the upcoming match, Botafogo plays at home, which is an extremely significant factor, as this team has turned their stadium into a fortress, boasting a record of 10 matches and 10 wins in their home games. While their upcoming opponent, Bahia, are currently on a decent run, it's important to note that Bahia are a survival fighter. Despite any temporary improvement in their results, it's unlikely that they will become the first team this season to take points from Botafogo on their own turf. This sets the stage for a bet on the success of the home team.

Thanks to a good run and only one loss in the last 5 rounds, Bahia managed to climb out of the relegation zone, but this is currently only a formal achievement. The same Santos, also in the relegation zone, has the same 21 points as Bahia. As for the chances of the away team to succeed in this match, they are very slim. Even against much simpler opponents, Bahia primarily looked strong at their home ground. However, in 10 away matches, the team has managed only 1 victory, and that was a while ago. So, it's highly unlikely that a survival fighter will be able to break the dominant home streak of the clear championship leader.
There's probably no need to overthink the betting options here, as the obvious favorite is evident, and Botafogo can confirm this status in the upcoming match by securing their 11th victory in 11 home matches of the current season. As for a handicap bet on the home team, it's also worth considering, since Botafogo usually wins by a couple of goals on their home turf.”
Prediction for the match: Botafogo to win.
