This season Sao Paulo disappointed their supporters in every game as the team managed to gain only one single win with four draws and five defeats in last 10 clashes. After 16 rounds the side settles on the 18th place in the Serie A standings with 16 points taken, 16 goals for and 19 goals against meaning relegation. “Tricolor” showed horrible results at away fields: the team picked up only one point with four goals for and 13 goals against in eight battles. Sao Paulo’s defeating streak on the road counts for four matches.
Sao Paulo have advantage over Botafogo RJ in their recent head-to-heads, however, this season the teams demonstrate quite opposite level of football plus “Fogao” will play at the home ground which allows it at least take points especially taking into account that Sao Paolo look miserable in the clashes on the road.
Prediction for the match: Botafogo RJ to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
