Santos FC vs Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas Prediction 23 July 2023

Tournament: Campeonato Brasileiro Série A
Location: Vila Belmiro, São Paulo
Match date: 07/23/2023 at 20:00

In the sixteenth round of Brasileirao, the confident leader of the championship, Botafogo, will go to visit Santos, who is limping on both legs.

Over the past month, Santos has beaten only Goias (4:3), while its confrontations with Corinthians (0:2), Flamengo (2:3), Cuiaba (0:3) and Sao Paulo (1:4) ended much more deplorably. At the moment Peixe are only fourteenth with 16 points, a goal difference of 16:23 and a margin of just four points from the relegation zone.

At the same time, Botafogo took turns dealing with Cuiaba (1:0), Palmeiras (1:0), Vasco da Gama (2:0), Gremio (2:0) and Bragantino (2:0), thereby reinforcing its standings to the limit. With 39 points on a 26-7 goal count, the Lone Star is heading full steam ahead to its first Brazilian title since 1995.

It is not surprising that Botafogo is the favorite of this pair, since Santos is unlikely to be able to stop such a well-coordinated team. We believe that in the best case for themselves, the hosts will only play for a draw.
