Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in four of Botafogo’s last six home games
  • 11 of Sao Paulo’s last 16 matches have seen both teams net
  • Sao Paulo are yet to win away from home in the league this season

Can Botafogo end dreadful run?

Four successive defeats means Botafogo are in the bottom four of Brazil’s Serie A division, a run they will be desperate to arrest as they look for just a second home win of the campaign.

Luis Castro will have severe defensive concerns for his side, given they have not kept a clean sheet in six, with both teams netting in half of those matches.

Both teams have also scored in four of their five home league outings, of which they have lost three, but they can draw on the fact they are unbeaten in their last three meetings with Sao Paulo at Estádio Nilton Santos.

Sao Paulo looking to build on a strong start

Sao Paulo meanwhile sit just four points off top spot after a nine game unbeaten run, but they are struggling to put games to bed, with six of those matches ending as score draws, despite taking the lead in five of those.

Both teams have netted in each of their half a dozen away games, the last five of which have ended 1-1, while their sole defeat of the season came on the road at Flamengo in April.

Rogério Ceni’s side are unbeaten on their travels in eight in all competitions, and they will fancy their chances of picking up another result here.

I predict that both teams will score in this game, but given the respective form I think they will cancel each other out, with 1-1 my correct score prediction.
