Coritiba vs Botafogo by Foxserkan

Coritiba is one of the strongest home team in Brazil. At home, they know how to give pressure and put their rivals under stress. Jonas Junior the defending midfielder and offensive midfielder Cassio Lincoln are expected to be in the team. Once again Coritiba are strong home team and this is the biggest fact in this match when considering a bet to make. Their last defeat was on 20.July.2011 almost a year ago. And it was Sao Paulo which they lost 3-4. And the other record that they lost was against Atletico Go 0-1. But this defeat was due to the rotation as they had to play a cup match with Ceara. Therefore I would never bet any team who visits their stadium unless something is normal.

Botafogo won last weekend against Sao Paul 4-2 and the score may sound like convincing but not to me. The goals they produced were a result of Sao Paulo’s unbelievable mistakes. And also their talent goal keeper Jefferson. I want to say that this goal keeper is on top of his form as he has a big ability to save very dangerous shoots. Too bad he is in national team and will not be in the squad when his team needs the most. Veteran striker Abreu in Uruguay national. Andrezinho, Antonio Carlos, and Marcelo Matto have continues injury. Defender Fabio Ferreira is doubtful but should play. I also want to mention about the cup match they played with Vitorai and the way they played was hit the nets and defend to protect the score. Not even attempt to improve an attack. At last they conceded the second and they got eliminated (1-1) (1-2). But I still can not understand how Sao Paulo did those mistakes and lost 4-2, it is like fixing something. The absence of Abreu the Uruguay striker with good heading ability is not a big deal as Herrera will replace him who scored 3 goals against Sao Paulo. Besides Herrera wants to prove himself and he is very greedy to be in top 11. With his speed, he may be a problem for Coritiba.

Sao Paulo victory can not be considered as a measure in deciding what to bet. Jefferson the important goal keeper is not in the squad and Botafogo will play very difficult away match. The odds are satisfying to invest on home team Cortiba. At home matches they start with pressure and create serial attacks. They can even win the first half.
