It is still too early in the season, but Botafogo SP's fans have to be worried after their team started 2024 with only four points in the first six league rounds. Botafogo SP are in terrible form, with the last seven games without a win in all competitions. Last weekend, Paulo Gomes' team lost 4-0 on the road against Goias. The home side finished with xG of 2.75, while guests had only 0.80, so it is no wonder Botafogo SP suffered another defeat. 

Last season, Palmeiras won another Serie A title. However, this season didn't start well, so after six rounds, they are only 9th on the table with eight points. Palmeiras' form is improving as they won four of the last five matches. In the previous game, they won 2-1 at home in Copa Libertadores against Independiente del Valle. The home side had some problems in that match, especially in the second half, but they still took all three points. 

Botafogo SP vs Palmeiras pick: Palmeiras to win and cover AH -1 spread

In the first leg, Palmeiras won 2-1 against Botafogo SP. However, stats show the dominance of Abel Ferreira's team, as Palmeiras had 16 more shots on the goal than the opponent in that game. We should expect another dominant performance from Palmeiras, so guests to win and cover AH -1 spread should be the best bet for this tie.

Botafogo SP team news

After a 4-0 loss against Goias, Botafogo SP's head coach, Paulo Gomes, took complete responsibility for the defeat. He said, "Things didn't work. Goiás scored two goals in two situations that we had previously worked on and scored in crucial moments, in the 24th and 40th minutes, in transitions that we were unable to kill the play. 2-0 before half-time gives a different peace of mind to Goiás, who are an excellent team, a club that comes from Series A, with a plan for promotion, a big crowd that supports and pushes the team to victory and you feel stronger."

Palmeiras team news

Palmeiras remains the strongest Brazilian team, but the head coach, Abel Ferreira, is having a hard time after it was revealed that he signed a pre-contract with Qatari Al Saddi at the end of 2023. Palmeiras' board convinced him to stay, but now, Al Sadd is opening a case against the head coach at FIFA. This is far from being a perfect situation for the Portuguese manager.
