Football – Brazil – Serie A Betting Tips

Flamengo will go in search of a third successive league win in the Brazilian Serie A when they play host to Avai this evening at the Maracana ground, and a win could help close the gap on the teams chasing a Copa Libertadores play-off spot.

Recent wins over Sao Paulo 2-1 and Sport Recife 1-0 have lifted Flamengo up into a top half position in the Brazilian top flight, and with home advantage behind them tonight, they’ll certainly be eyeing off all three points to continue their improved home form.

Flamengo are unbeaten in their last four matches on home turf which includes three wins over Gremio, Atletico PR and Sao Paulo along with a draw against Santos in a 2-2 draw. Midfielder Everton (4 goals) along with forwards Sheik and Guerrero (3 goals apiece) look the likeliest anytime goalscorer for the hosts.

Visitors Avai currently sit in a bottom half position of 15th in the Brazilian Serie A having won just twice in their last eight matches overall. It’s also worth noting that both of these wins were registered on their home turf with victories over Fluminense and Internacional while in-between, they’ve suffered defeats to Ponte Preta, Corinthians and Santos.

Away from home, Avai’s performances have dipped dramatically as they’ve lost five of their last seven on their travels amidst an overall away record of  2-2-6  7/17 and in addition, they’ve failed to score on five occasions.

All things point therefore to a home win here tonight, and I’ll back the hosts Flamengo to rack up a third win on the trot with perhaps a 2-1 win.
