Sao Paulo vs Botafogo (By: Saconex)
Brazil Serie A
Sao Paulo vs Botafogo
Its time for a new season in Serie A Brazil, personally one of my favourite leagues seeing from the betting perspective.
Sao Paulo impressed in this years Paulista, but lost vs Corinthians in the finals. What I can see from their signings, things looks pretty good. They have signed some solid names and with their new manager Cuca, who have won the title for Palmeiras, they should be able to be a part of fighting in the top of the league and improve from the finish 5th last season.
Botafogo are in trouble overall, both taking in mind the football and the economics of the club. They havent had a good period of results and got knocked out from Copa do Brasil vs Juventude (Serie C). Its a shame for the club and the preparations in front of this season havent been good at all, as its reported.
* Sao Paulo won this match by 3-2 last season, the reverse fixture ended 2-2
Overall, the hosts should be able to win this match and kick off the season with 3 points. They looks a lot more structured compared with the guests and have signed players that is expected to take them to a higher level. When that being said, surprises will always happen in a new season and it will surely happen in Serie A as well, but it shouldn’t come in this match I think. So I’m backing Sao Paulo to win this match clearly.
