Botafogo vs Avai
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 27th June 2017
Kick-off at 0:00 UK/ 1:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Joao Havelange (Rio de Janeiro).
Easy three points in sight for Botafogo when they welcome a troubled Avai FC for the Serie A clash on Monday evening.
Botafogo continued their revival on the midweek with a 3-1 win over Vasco. They pulled off two straight wins now on the back-end of a four match streak without a victory. However, they did pick three draws during the barren win-less run. This is why they are holding tight at fourth in the Serie A table.
The home form has been brilliant for Botafogo at the start of this Serie A season. The four matches so far saw three wins and a draw.
Meantime, Avai are struggling to adjust to the life in Serie A. They managed just 1 win from their 9 matches so far and are rightfully placed at the foot of the league table. The cloud of relegation is heavy on them, mostly marred by a poor attack which managed just 3 goals during the period.
Last week, Avai lost 3-0 to Fluminense, suffering the third defeat on the bounce. Also, they lost all their five matches so far away from home, scoring just once during the period.
Botafogo vs Avai: Head-to-head
The last meeting between these sides can be dated back to the 2011 season, with the teams winning their respective home matches.
Stalemates dominate the recent head-to-head meetings between these two sides with 5 out of 9 matches ending in draws. Botafogo bagged 3 wins during the period, while Avai managed to win just once.
Botafogo are unbeaten in the last five home meetings against Avai with 2 wins and 3 draws.
Botafogo vs Avai: Prediction
Botafogo looked solid in the last two outings and they shouldn’t have a problem to bag full points if they can carry on the momentum. Avai are struggling on all fronts and one must doubt if they have the squad to play at this level.
