Atletico GO vs Avai FC
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 14th June 2017
Kick-off at 23:30 UK/ 0:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira.
Last year’s Serie B rivals will take on each other in the seventh round of the elite class of the Brazilian football this Wednesday at Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira.
The match is one of 6-pointers since it is more than obvious that these two sides will be main contenders for the immediate second tier relegation.
The team from Goias struggled a lot to find their form at the start of the season. They opened the new campaign with four consecutive losses under Marcelo Cabo who has been instantly replaced by Dorival.
Dorival immediately ended the crisis by celebrating a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Ponte Preta on his debut.
However, Atletico failed to back up the mid-week’ win on Sunday when they expectedly fell to Cruzeiro 2-0 on the road.
Avai seem to be much stronger defensively, but Claudinei Oliveira lacks proper attacking options which is why the team only bagged two goals in the opening six rounds.
The Lion of the Island is yet to score the first goal on the road after suffering three consecutive defeats to Sao Paulo, Chapecoense and Atletico Mineiro away from home.
Atletico GO vs Avai: Head to head
This will be the first meeting between the two sides in the top flight of the Brazilian football since November 2011.
Home teams mainly came out victorious from clashes in Serie B. Atletico have three wins on the bounce in front of their fans, including a 3-0 thumping of Avai in October last year.
Atletico GO vs Avai: Prediction
Atletico are clear favourites to back up the fine display from the clash with Ponte Preta.
The 21/20 odds offered on the home win have the value and the bet is perfect for a mid to high stakes single.
