Sunday brings us further action from the Brazilian top flight and our next preview features a clash between Botafogo and Santos as the betting tips continue at the Estádio Nilton Santos.

Botafogo Prediction – Can Botafogo return to winning ways?

The hosts head into this Sunday afternoon clash having managed to register just 2 wins out of their last 6 matches overall in Serie A.

Recent victories against Vasco da Gama and CSA have maintained Botafogo’s challenge for a top six finish and they’re level on points with 6th placed Athletico PR.

However, a lack of consistency has also seen the hosts suffer defeats to Goias, Palmeiras and Gremio in recent weeks.

An inconsistent looking home record of 3-0-2 5/4 includes 2 defeats from their last 3 matches on home turf at their Estádio Nilton Santos.

Recent history in previous meetings with Santos though also appears to be against the hosts in this Brazilian top flight match-up.

Botafogo have managed just 1 win from their last 9 meetings against Santos in all competitions, so the hosts will do well to get anything from this encounter I fancy.

In addition, a lack of goals may well hold the hosts back as their last 5 encounters with Santos has resulted in under 2.5 goals.

Santos Prediction – Can Santos close gap at top of Serie A?

The visitors look a much more stable and consistent outfit than their Sunday afternoon’s hosts, Botafogo, as Santos look to continue their good form.

A 5-match unbeaten run in the Brazilian top flight for Santos includes having won their last 4 matches on the trot.

Recent wins against Ceara, Atletico Mineiro, Corinthians and Bahia will give the visitors plenty of momentum heading into this clash.

Indeed, just 1 defeat out of their last 10 matches overall shows the level of consistency that Santos have achieved so far this season.

They find themselves just 3 points behind the Serie A league leaders, Palmeiras, thanks to this solid sequence of results.

Santos have also been fairly reliable away from home too as their away record of 3-1-1 4/5 this season to date indicates.

Wins at Gremio, Ceara and Bahia have helped the visitors stay in touch with Palmeiras at the top of the domestic table.

Midfielder Sanchez (3 goals) and forward Sasha (5 goals) look the most likely for the visitors here.


Key-Facts – Botafogo v Santos

  • Botafogo have managed just 1 win from their last 9 meetings against Santos
  • Santos have lost just 1 of their last 10 matches overall in Serie A
  • The last 5 encounters between these two sides have resulted in under 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

A low-scoring encounter may well be on the cards here with perhaps Santos nicking a narrow win.
