Botafogo – Flamengo
Reigning Champions Flamengo will visit local Rio de Janeiro rivals Botafogo in Brazil’s Serie A’s matchday 24. The match will take place on Saturday, 5th December, and the visitors are clear favourites to beat their local rivals, who are currently on the brink of going down.

2) Botafogo is in a series of four straight losses in the Brasileirao.
3) In the last two visits to Botafogo, Flamengo won.
4) Flamengo is the best team to play away in the competition, with six wins in 11 matches.

Bahia – Ceara
Bahia and Ceara face each other on matchday 24 in the Brasileirao. The match is set to be played on Saturday, 5th December and a balanced clash between two sides who are doing similar campaigns in the domestic league is expected.

Given both clubs’ situation and taking stats into account, over 2.5 goals is the most reasonable choice.
Fluminense – Athletico Paranaense

1) Fluminense have scored 31 goals in 23 games
2) Paranaense have only 19 goals in 23 matches.
