Botafogo might find themselves closer to relegation battle than the title race, but they boast of an impressive home record. They have lost only one home game throughout the 2018 season, and hence, we don’t see them losing on Sunday. Furthermore, they arrive in this game in top form having won their last two games. Meanwhile, Sao Paulo have drawn their last two games while managing to score only one goal. Despite their slip-ups, they find themselves at the summit of the league table. However, we don’t see them sitting in the top spot for too long as we don’t expect an away win in Botafogo vs Sao Paulo predictions.

Botafogo RJ vs Sao Paulo Betting Tips: Form Guide

Botafogo aiming for hat-trick of wins

Wins have been rare for Botafogo this season, but they seem to have picked up some form at a crucial point. The Rio de Janeiro club have won their last two games against America MG(H) and Vitoria (A), and these six points have helped them move up to the 12th spot in the league table. However, they are only four points clear of the relegation zone, and they could use some more points in their upcoming games.

In their last game, Botafogo claimed a 3-4 win at Vitoria to register their second success on the road this season.

The hosts have been difficult to beat at home this season. They have won six and lost only one of their 12 home games in 2018. They have scored only 13 home goals this season, and eight of their last nine home games have ended with under 2.5 goals. Botafogo have also managed six clean sheets in their last eight games at Estádio Nilton Santos.

Overall, O Glorioso have scored 26 goals in their Serie A campaign at the rate of a goal/game. Kieza and Rodrigo Lindoso top Botafogo’s scoring chars with six goals each. Both were also on target in the win over Vitoria.

Sao Paulo desperate to keep the top spot

Several slip-ups by top teams in recent weeks have allowed Sao Paulo to move to the top of the table. They haven’t been perfect either and they travel to Botafogo following consecutive draws with Santos and America MG.

They have managed one win in their last five games, and we don’t like their prospects against Botafogo. Tricolor have been a decent away side in Serie this season, as they have five wins in their 13 travels. However, they remain winless in their last three games on the road with two draws and one defeat.

Sao Paulo’s last eight games in Serie A have ended with under 2.5 goals, and we expect the same fate for this fixture. The league leaders have scored 37 goals in their 26 league games this season. However, they have failed to score more than a goal in their last seven Serie A fixtures. Hence, we don’t see them scoring more than one goal in Botafogo vs Sao Paulo betting tips.

Diego Souza is the top-scorer for Sao Paulo with nine goals and Nene is not far behind with eight. Everton has also made a decent contribution with five strikes.

Back in May, Sao Paulo claimed a 3-2 win over their opponents in the reverse fixture. Nene, Souza and Everton were all on target for the leaders while Valencia and Pimpao found the net for Botafogo. We don’t expect so many goals this time around in Botafogo vs Sao Paulo betting tips for today.

Botafogo RJ vs Sao Paulo Prediction: Low-Scoring Draw

Botafogo finished tenth in Serie A in 2017, and they would be happy to match that feat this season.

They were struggling near the relegation zone till very recently, but back-to-back wins have provided a huge push to their season. They are still only four points away from the relegation zone, but Corinthians in the eighth spot are only two points ahead of them. Hence, they could very well move into the top half of the table with a win against Sao Paulo.

Botafogo have been reliable at home, and they would feel that they can get something against the leaders on Sunday. However, a win might be out of their reach.

Sao Paulo are involved in an intense title race involving five teams. They find themselves at the summit of the league table, but their top position could slip from their grasp if they fail to defeat Botafogo.

They have the likes of Palmeiras and Internacional only a single point behind them. Flamengo and Gremio are also not far behind in the table. Hence, every point is vital for Sao Paulo in the pursuit of their first Serie A title since 2008.
