Title-chasing Sao Paulo head into the clash against Botafogo on Thursday as favourites. In the current Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A campaign, both sides are fighting for contrasting things. Sitting third at the table, Sao Paulo are keen to put up a title challenge, while relegation-threatened Botafogo are looking to stay up in the top division. Both sides head into this match on the back of inconsistent results, but the visitors seem to have the edge against a side who have struggled to register a win in the recent past. 

Sao Paulo are close to where they are expected to be in the standings, as they are in the hunt for the league title by sitting third in the table. The visitors have 18 points from 11 games. They have won four, drawn six and lost only once till now. However, those six draws have been a major cause of headache for them. Infact in their last four games, they have won once but have drawn the other three games. It’s their inability to convert draws into wins that has been hurting Sao Paulo this season.

On the other hand, Botafogo are in the middle of a poor run of form. They are winless in their last four matches. In these four matches, they have scored only one solitary goal but have conceded eight times. In the league, they are occupying the 17th spot – the final relegation place – with a total of 12 points from 11 games. If they do not get their issues sorted out soon, they will be in big trouble. Hence, the home match against Sao Paulo is extremely important for them to end their losing streak.
