Botafogo scored only 1 goal in 4 games
The team of the former Shakhtar Donetsk coach Luis Castro not only lost already 4 games in a row but also managed to score only 1 goal during this stretch. The total score on the losing streak is 1-8.
In the previous round, Botafogo failed at home against Avai, 0-1. The opponent opened the scoring at the end of the first half, and Botafogo never offered anything worthy in attack in response. In the standings, the lonely Star has already fallen to 17th place, the relegation zone.
São Paulo is only four points behind the league leader
In the last round, Tricolor took on America Mineiro at home. Rogerio Ceni's team started the match poorly and allowed the opponent to create several dangerous situations near their goal. That said, America failed to take advantage of chances, and São Paulo punished the opponent for wastefulness – at the end of the first half, the Tricolor attack finished with an accurate shot by forward Patrick. In the second half, São Paulo managed to retain the minimal advantage, winning 1-0. Rogerio Ceni's team moved into third place in the Serie A standings, sitting only four points behind leader Palmeiras.
Last season, the rivals exchanged home victories. Botafogo won 1-0, and São Paulo won 4-0.
Expert Betting Tips
Botafogo and São Paulo to date appear to be rivals of different levels. If Castro's team has been falling apart lately, Ceni's team plays quality balanced soccer, almost never loses, and deservedly occupies a place in the top 3 of Serie A.
Prediction: São Paulo will not allow another opponent to go wild at their goal & will leave Rio with the points.
