Botafogo vs Sao Paulo
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 16 June 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos.
Botafogo are one of the absolute worst teams in the Brazilian top flight, and are on a long losing streak. In fact, only one other squad has let in more goals than them in the entire competition and they are also struggling to find the back of the net as well.
Meanwhile, Sao Paulo are on a long unbeaten stretch of results and are consistently finding the back of the net. It also needs to be noted that they have seldom lost on the road in the past few months.
They are placed 3rd in the table as of now and since the second-best team has a tough fixture coming up, it is an opportunity for Sao Paulo to improve their position in the table. By the looks of things expect a convincing win for them this Thursday.
