Avai vs Cruzeiro Predictions & Match Preview

Avai vs Cruzeiro
Brazil- Serie A
Date: Sunday, 11 August 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Ressacada (Florianópolis).

Avai can slump no further down the table as they have hit rock bottom with zero wins from thirteen games. The hosts’ last clash on home soil saw they succumb to a 2-0 defeat against Botafogo RJ, with the squad finding the target just four times by the end of the ninety minutes.

The home team have also been at the receiving end of five goals in their last two games alone and have managed to reply with just one of their own.

Cruzeiro have been faring only slightly better in their own respective campaign, and have come out on top just twice in their clashes so far.

Both sides are certainly struggling to make it out of the bottom tier of the table at the moment and will be hoping to pick up all three points when they lock horns this weekend.

Avai vs Cruzeiro Prediction

Home advantage has been a myth for Avai this season, with the squad failing to come out on top in all of their home games. The team have also scored just two goals in the process and have conceded five.

The visitors, on the other hand, are also without a win in their trips on the road. However, Cruzeiro have fared well against this opponent in their previous clashes, and have secured the bragging rights two times more than their foes in their all-time meetings.

Avai are on an utterly dismal run of form at the moment, and so Cruzeiro’s chances of clinching all three points are certainly looming large.

Neither sides have been dynamic in the final third, and have not been shown any vigor whatsoever in racking up their respective goals tally. With both teams managing not more than fourteen goals between them, a low scoring clash is definitely in the reckoning. Expect Cruzeiro to edge it past Avai by not more than a slender margin on Sunday.
