Avai vs Flamengo
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 11th June 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Ressacada (Florianopolis).
Avai FC have started the Brazilian Serie A championship in lethargic fashion by winning just one game from their first five. This includes losing 3 in their last four matches. They have only scored 1 goal this season so far, so at home will be looking to turn things around where they are unbeaten in their two games so far.
Flamengo are down in 14th place and if they lose this match Avai would leapfrog them, so this is an interesting test to put some distance between their hosts.
Flamengo are win-less in their last 3 games where they have drawn two and recently lost against Sport Recife- this was the club’s first loss of the season.
Away from home it’s won 1, lost 1 and drawn , and it is really too early to start judging overall form at this stage of the season.
