Botafogo RJ – Santos : Preview & Prediction
The Santos has set out to hunt down Palmeiras: after a very fast start, the leaders had a setback (let’s call it that, given that this is the second draw in ten game, with eight victories) on the San Paolo field. And so the Santos was able to make two points, consolidate the second place and reduce the disadvantage to a single victory of difference. This is why it is now necessary to give continuity and the transfer against Botafogo is a sort of maturity exam for Santos, which cannot possibly be wrong, even to give a strong signal to the opponent (who will instead be busy on the Cearà field).
The Botafogo is not going through a very brilliant period: a draw and a defeat in the last two championship matches.
The cariocas, in fact, come from the 0-0 on the field of Cruzeiro (fourth last in the standings) and from the defeat in the last inside against the Gremio (0-1 the final result).
The recent results in the Santos league are very different, on the other hand coming from four consecutive victories …
Pelé’s grandchildren beat, in order, Cearà fuori (0-1), Atletico Mineiro and Corinthias at home (3-1 and 1-0 respectively) and Bahia away (0-1).
One (but heavy) defeat for Santos so far in the league: a hard lesson suffered by the leaders Palmeiras (4-0).
