Botafogo vs Avai Live Stats & Betting Odds

Botafogo Prediction – Can Botafogo avoid fifth defeat on trot?

The hosts head into this important relegation clash having lost their last 4 matches on the trot in Serie A which has left Botafogo fourth from bottom and in the relegation zone as they prepare for this ‘six-pointer’ against fellow strugglers, Avai.

Recent losses to Gremio, Cruzeiro, Santos and Flamengo have certainly not done Botafogo any favours in their quest to avoid relegation down to Serie B, but perhaps they won’t get a better chance to register a much-needed win against rock bottom Avai on Monday night.

Results on home turf at their stádio Nilton Santos have been sporadic and inconsistent as their overall home record of 7-1-7 15/15 shows, but at least they’ve racked a few wins up on the board and indeed, Botafogo have won the most number of home wins out of all four teams currently sitting in the relegation zone.

In addition, Botafogo won the last encounter between these two teams when they recorded a 2-0 win away from home at Avai.

Avai Prediction – Can Avai spark unlikely revival?

As mentioned earlier, Avai sit rock bottom of Serie A and the visitors’ current predicament is actually worse than their Monday night’s hosts as Avai have suffered 7 defeats on the trot in the Brazilian top flight.

Having won just 3 of their 31 matches to date in this season’s Serie A campaign, the writing looks to be on the wall for the visitors as they find themselves a massive 17 points adrift of 16th placed Cruzeiro and safety with just 7 matches of the season remaining.

It looks a desperate and hopeless situation for Avai who have actually performed better on the road this term with an away record of 2-1-12 7/27 with wins picked up on the road at Fluminense and Athletico PR, but since their last victory, Avai have lost their subsequent 5 matches on the trot on their travels.

Defeats at Gremio, CSA, Ceara, Sao Paulo and Goias have seemingly already resigned Avai to the drop, and conceding 13 goals and scoring just 2 in reply doesn’t bode well for this trip to Botafogo either.


Key-Facts – Botafogo vs Avai

  • Botafogo have the most home wins out of teams in relegation zone
  • Avai have lost their last 5 away matches on the trot in Serie A
  • Botafogo won the last encounter against Avai 2-0 away from home


Betting Tips Verdict

Both teams are struggling right now but Botafogo look the better equipped to take the points here.
