Botafogo vs America Mineiro Prediction and Betting Tips | 14th July | Copa do Brasil 2022
The Copa do Brazil returns this week and will see Botafogo host America Mineiro at the Estadio Nilton Santos on Thursday in the second leg of their last 16 tie.
Botafogo have had their struggles this season, which included a 3-0 trouncing in the first leg of the tie. They struggled to create chances in the first half but still managed to hit the post twice and, although they put out a stronger showing after the restart, they could not find the goals needed to reduce the deficit.
Botafogo have never won the domestic competition, coming closest back in 1999 when they finished runners-up. They have a mountain to climb this week to keep their run in the cup campaign alive.
America Mineiro have not exactly had an outstanding season either as they sit in the bottom half of the Brasileiro Serie A table and endured a disappointing Copa Libertadores campaign. However, they showed ruthlessness in the final third in the first leg of the cup tie with Wellington Paulista, Danilo Avelar and Ale all getting on the scoresheet.
The Coelho are well in the driving seat ahead of the return leg on Thursday and only need to avoid defeat to advance to the quarterfinals of the cup competition.
