Botafogo vs Goianiense Preview

Botafogo vs Goianiense

Competition – Brazil Serie A

Stadium – Olimpico João Havelange

Date: 16th November 2017

Kick-off time – 22:00 GMT

Rock bottom Goianiense visit Botafogo as they look to start winning games and save their season.

Botafogo lost 1-0 to Athletico PR and they will be looking to get back to winning ways in this game.

They are having a successful campaign but they sit just one point ahead of the teams outside the top six (Flamengo 7th).

They have lost their last two home games however prior to those losses they were on a run of 5 wins in 6 home games.

They are a team that is susceptible to counter attacks especially when they play at home but with more than 1.5 goals per game, they should be able to win this game as Goianiense are truly out of contention for safety.

Goianiense picked up all three points over the weekend courtesy of a 2-0 win over fellow strugglers Sporting Recife which was a very rare win.

Despite that win, they are still nine points from safety with only four games to play and they will be looking to build a winning run before the end of the season.

Coming from the Serie B, they have failed to adapt to the quality of the Serie A and look set to go back down.

They have taken just 4 points from their last 7 games and have conceded average of 1.8 goals on the road this season.
