Botafogo vs Avai Prediction
Botafogo can be proud of limiting the toppers of the league, Flamengo, to just a 0-1 win over them the last match-day. Meanwhile, Avai was defeated 2-0 in their latest away tie, by the inconsistent Goias.
This Monday, the guests are severely on the backfoot. Not only are they the worst of the lot, but they have to deal with the away handicap as well. They are on a seven-match losing run and an 11-game winless streak. Of these 11, they embarrassingly lost 10.
On the road, the team lost their last five games and failed to score in their prior three. In addition, they had also lost ten of their former twelve games away from home.
Furthermore, Botafogo have come out on top majorly in h2h clashes, and especially so at this venue. While they themselves are weaklings in the competition, against Avai, Botafogo is considered a strong contender.
For the reason, the top pick for the day is a win for Botafogo RJ.
