In a showdown from Brazil’s Serie A that could prove to be another low-scoring affair this weekend, Juventude will host Botafogo on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, last seen putting in another toothless display, Juventude are in the midst of an extended rut. In their 22 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded just three wins, seven draws and 12 defeats, scoring 16 and conceding 35 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 16, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat rock-bottom of the standings and seven points adrift of finding a route out of the relegation zone. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 1-0 loss away at Cuiaba, Juventude have lost four of their last five domestic matchups. Likewise, along with losing their previous three outings by a scoreline of 1-0, it should also be highlighted that Sunday’s hosts have managed to score just a single strike from any of their last six domestic contests.

As for the visitors, also continuing on what has been a worrying run of form, Botafogo are desperate to try and find some stability. In their 22 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded seven wins, five draws and 10 defeats, scoring 20 and conceding 26 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 26, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat 12th in the standings and with their goal difference keeping them in the final Copa Sudamericana spot. As for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 0-0 stalemate against Atletico GO on home soil, Botafogo have mustered just a single victory from any of their last eight matchups across all formats. It should also be highlighted, with Sunday’s guests seeing each of those eight consecutive contests finish with under 2.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
