SAPL vs BOTF Dream11 Match Prediction Sao Paulo vs Botafogo Brazilian Serie A 10 December

SAPL vs BOTF Dream11 Prediction: Sao Paulo can extend their advantage at the top to seven points when they play Botafogo in the Brazilian Serie A at Cícero Pompeu de Toledo Stadium on Thursday morning (IST). Here is everything you may want to know about SAPL vs BOTF Dream 11 Match Prediction.
On paper at least, this game looks a complete mismatch. Sau Paulo are the current leader and are heading towards lifting yet another league title. Botafogo can best hope is to avoid the relegation. But it's already five points off safety and considering this game is against the best team in the league and that too away, that gap is likely to remain intact after the end of this match.

Luciano: The 27-year-old is perhaps the most deadly player in the league on current form. He has eight goals, one assist and three man-of-the-match performances in the last seven matches. Quite incredible. He should be a captain option in Dream 11 prediction teams.

SAPL vs BOTF Today Match Prediction Football Match

Bet 365 Odds
Sao Paulo To Win: 1.57 Or 63.69% chance to win
Draw: 4.00 Or 25.00% chance to win
Botafogo to Win: 5.75 Or 17.39% chance to win

BetWay
Sao Paulo To Win: 1.57 Or 63.69% chance to win
Draw: 3.80 Or 26.32% chance to win
Botafogo to Win: 5.75 Or 17.39% chance to win

There are still 15 rounds to play, meaning 45 points to fight for. But it seems already that Botafogo could soon run out of time if they don't arrest the current slump. The five points deficit from safety feels more due to their fluctuating form.
And considering the next game is against Sao Paulo, who have picked up the form at perhaps the most crucial stage in the season, makes their task of getting something out of this game all the more difficult.
As you can see Today Match Prediction odds above, the home team is being seen as a clear-cut favourite to win this match. So choose your SAPL vs BOTF Dream11 Match Prediction teams wisely.
