Fluminense Prediction – Can Fluminense take a big step towards safety?

Monday night’s hosts, Fluminense, were handed a fourth defeat in their last five matches a couple of weeks ago when they suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to second from bottom club, CSA, last time out in Serie A, but they’ll be hoping they can avoid another defeat when bottom side, Avai, come to visit on Monday night.

Fluminense were also handed an exit from the Copa Sudamericana last week despite holding fellow Brazilian Serie A outfit, Corinthians, to a 1-1 draw at home in the 2nd leg. Corinthians sneaked through on the away-goal rule after the scores were level at 0-0 after the 1st leg, which means that Fluminense have managed just 2 wins out of their last 7 matches in all competitions.

These wins were against Penarol (3-1 at home in the Copa Sudamericana) and a 2-1 home win over 6th placed Internacional in Serie A, which will at least give Fluminense a bit of encouragement ahead of this relegation clash with Avai.

The hosts also hold a solid record at home against Avai in Serie A as Fluminense have won the 5 league meetings on the trot against Monday night’s opponents.

Avai Prediction – Can Avai keep hopes alive?

If Fluminenses’s season has been poor then Avai’s has been disastrous by comparison as the visitors sit rock-bottom of the Brazilian top flight with just 7 points to their name after playing 16 matches so far this season.

These 7 points consist of 7 draws, 6 of which have been achieved on home turf at their Estádio Aderbal Ramos da Silva where they possess a stubborn if uninspiring home record of 0-6-2 5/8, and their form in their own backyard continues to be their best chance of somehow avoiding the drop down to Serie B.

However, having failed to win any of their 16 matches so far this season, and having lost 7 of their last 8 matches on their travels so far this term, hopes aren’t high for the visitors in terms of avoiding relegation, as they trail fourth from bottom club, Cruzeiro, and safety, by an 11-point margin.

An away record of 0-1-7 3/14 doesn’t appear to give Avai much chance of getting anything at the Maracana on Monday night, nor does the fact that they’ve lost their last 5 away matches on the trot, conceding 10 goals and scoring just 1 in reply.


Key-Facts – Fluminense v Avai

  • Fluminense have won the last 5 meetings at home against Avai in Serie A
  • Avai have still yet to register a win in this season’s Serie A
  • Avai have lost 7 of their 8 away matches so far this season in Serie A


Betting Tips Verdict

Both teams have been poor so far this term, but Fluminense look the more likely to grab the points in this clash.
