Botafogo Prediction – Can Botafogo end losing streak?

A losing streak of 4 matches on the trot in the Brazilian top flight is threatening Botafogo’s top 12 position and their place in the CONMEBOL Sudamericana following recent defeats to Sao Paulo, Bahia, Fortaleza and Fluminense, so they’ll be desperate to end this sequence on Wednesday night.

Recent results have seen Botafogo’s form dip in alarming fashion as they’ve actually managed just 1 win out of their last 9 matches overall in Serie A which was a 2-1 home win over Atletico Mineiro, but losing 6 of these last 9 matches has taken its toll.

The hosts have also lost their last two home matches on the trot as well as they’ve suffered defeats to Sao Paulo and Fluminense, which has dented their home record to 5-1-5 10/10 ahead of this important encounter with Goias on Wednesday night.

Nevertheless, Botafogo are unbeaten in their last 3 meetings at home against Goias and striker Diego Souza (5 goals) looks the most likely for the hosts in this one.

Goias Prediction – Can Goias extend winning streak?

By total contrast, Goias head into this clash on Wednesday night against Botafogo at the Estádio Nilton Santos on the back of an impressive 4-match winning streak which has seen the visitors rack up wins against Fluminense, Sao Paulo, Cruzeiro and Ceara, with the Sao Paulo and Ceara wins coming away from home.

This recent winning streak has helped Goias up into a mid-table position of 10th place and they also now occupy one of the possible qualification places for the Sudamericana, so the visitors will now be keen to consolidate their current league position.

Results away from home started in positive fashion for Goias who recorded a 1-0 win away at Fluminense, but they then slumped to a worrying 9-match sequence without a win on their travels, and they took just 2 points from the possible 27 on offer during that period, thanks to draws with Avai 0-0 and a 1-1 draw at Bahia.

Goias have picked up their game in recent weeks with the wins at Sao Paulo and Ceara, but they haven’t beaten Botafogo in their last 3 trips to the Estádio Nilton Santos.


Key-Facts – Botafogo v Goias

  • Botafogo have lost their last 4 matches on the trot in Serie A
  • Goias have won their last 4 matches on the trot in Serie A
  • Botafogo are unbeaten in their last 3 meetings at home v Goias


Betting Tips Verdict
