The Best Betting Tips and Predictions for Botafogo vs Santos
Botafogo to Win
The Fish have not lost to Botafogo in any of the last three head-to-head meetings the most recent one was a 2-0 win. However, in that previous meeting, Botafogo had more possession and almost twice as many shots. Unfortunately, The Glorious One did not put the ball in the net once. We think Botafogo will win this one, as besides being slightly better than Santos in the last few rounds, they will be playing at home.
Over 2.5 Goals
The visiting team has been fragile in the defensive zone, however, they have balanced that negative factor by scoring in almost all their games. In addition, both teams will go out to win this duel, so there will likely be many goals or at least 3 in total.
The main reason why we think this duel may end with BTTS is that Santos this factor has been repeated in six of their last seven matches. Both teams average more than 1 goal per game, which supports our prediction. In the h2h, El Pez is usually the first to score, but also conceded goals in their last four matches.
Botafogo vs Santos Preview: A Slim Hope To Stay In Serie A
The Glorious One won again on the previous matchday, which was doubly important because it was away against one of its direct rivals, Atletico Mineiro. Botafogo did not stand out for ball possession, as they only had 34%. However, their defense was good, as their opponent only shot once on target. Botafogo’s offense was not much better, as they only shot twice on target, fortunately, both were converted into goals.
The Fish could have had a better chance of fighting for a Copa Libertadores berth had they not drawn against Avai, one of the officially relegated teams, on the previous matchday. Santos was the first to score with a goal by Marcos Leonardo in the 5th minute of the first half. Avai equalized 6 minutes into the second half, and from then on, the scoreboard never moved again.
