Avai – Can Avai lift themselves off the bottom of Serie A?

Avai sit bottom of the Brazilian Serie A with just 3 points to their name thanks to draws with Gremio, CSA and Vasco da Gama, but they’re still without a win so far this season and have suffered 4 defeats to date with losses against Atletico Mineiro, Bahia, Ceara and Internacional which have left them bottom of the pile.

Avai were promoted from Serie B at the end of last season but already they’re facing a relegation battle on their hands in this campaign as they trail Fluminense and safety by 3 points with a difficult looking fixture against Sao Paulo this Saturday evening.

The hosts have managed just 2 wins from their last 11 matches at home in Serie A which were victories gained over Palmeiras and Athletico PR, but they’ve tended to struggle to take all three points on a regular basis whenever they’ve made the step up into the Brazilian top flight.

In addition, Avai have managed to record just 1 win in their last 6 encounters against Saturday night’s opponents Sao Paulo, so history doesn’t appear to be on their side ahead of this important clash.

Sao Paulo Prediction – Can Sao Paulo break into top six?

Sao Paulo head into this encounter having suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 7 matches overall in the Serie A which was a 1-0 loss away at Corinthians, but wins this season over Botafogo, Goias and Fortaleza should give them enough impetus to go and grab something from their trip to Avai.

Sao Paulo have won 2 of their first 3 away matches this term as well which will give them confidence for this road trip and they have the added incentive of knowing that all three points in this clash against the bottom side, Avai, would lift them up into the top six of the Brazilian top flight.

The visitors will no doubt be keen to make further improvements upon their results away from home as they’ve picked up just 3 wins out of their last 12 matches, but with 4 draws within this sequence, this gives the visitors a good chance of at least avoiding defeat at Avai on Saturday.

Sao Paulo also possess forward Pato up front who should create a few headaches for the Avai defence here.


Key-Facts – Avai v Sao Paulo

  • Avai have won just 2 out of their last 11 matches at home in Serie A
  • Sao Paulo have lost just 1 of their last 6 encounters against Avai
  • Sao Paulo have won 2 of their first 3 away matches in Serie A this season


Betting Tips Verdict

Avai have struggled to grab all three points even at home, so this gives Sao Paulo a good chance of at least avoiding defeat here but could edge this perhaps 1-0.
