Palmeiras – Can Palmeiras grab a 7th win on trot?

Palmeiras are currently enjoying life in the Brazilian Serie A as the hosts sit top of the division with a 2-point cushion ahead of 2nd placed Santos but they can open up a lead of five points with a win over Serie A strugglers and bottom club, Avai, on Thursday night.

Palmeiras are also in red-hot form as the hosts have won their last 6 matches in the Brazilian top flight on the trot, scoring a total of 11 goals and conceding just 1 in reply during this purple patch fo results that have taken them to the top of the division.

The hosts have also won their first 4 home matches of the season on the trot, giving them a 100% winning record and an impressive home record that stands at 4-0-0 10/0 as the hosts have also kept 4 clean sheets on the bounce as well.

Palmeiras are certainly the team to beat in Serie A as the home side have been absolutely dominant on home turf for some time now, winning their last 17 home matches on the trot and Avai look completely helpless to prevent an 18th straight win for Palmeiras here in this clash.

Avai Prediction – Can Avai cause an upset in Sao Paulo?

By total contrast, Avai sit rock bottom of Serie A with just 4 points to their name so far this season and face the almost impossible task of inflicting a first defeat upon Palmeiras in 18 home matches, especially as the visitors have failed to win any of their 8 matches to date this season.

Four draws with Gremio, CSA, Vasco da Gama and Sao Paulo mean that Avai have taken just 4 points out of the first possible 24 points on offer of the season, and defeats to Atletico MG, Bahia, Ceara and Internacional only seem to confirm their fate for this Thursday night’s clash with the league leaders.

Avai make their way to face Palmeiras on the back of an 8-match sequence without a win on their travels in the top flight, which includes five defeats, no clean sheets and have failed to score in 4 of these 8 matches on the road.

In addition, past visits to the Allianz Parque has resulted in Avai losing their last 6 matches away form home to Palmeiras, and they look powerless to avoid a seventh loss on the trot to their more illustrious opponents here this evening.


Key-Facts – Palmeiras v Avai

  • Palmeiras have won their first 4 home matches of this season on the trot
  • Palmeiras have won their last 17 home matches on the trot
  • Avai haven’t won any of their last 8 away matches in Serie A


Betting Tips Verdict

Palmeiras are in supreme form right now and anything other than a home win here would be a total shock.
