Avai vs Ponte Preta
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 2nd July 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Aderbal Ramos da Silva.
Avai will enter the game with a significantly improved confidence after a shocking 0-2 win over Botafogo last weekend.
Leao da Ilha will be looking to build on the fine performance and cause yet another upset this weekend when they host Ponte Preta at their Estadio Aderbal Ramos da Silva.
The away victory over Botafogo came literally out of nowhere for Claudinei Oliveira and his men who have previously suffered a catastrophic 0-3 loss to Fluminense on the home patch.
Joel was the man who stole the show by completing a brace in his second appearance for Avai. The bookies price the Cameroonian striker at 9/2 to score anytime against Ponte Preta this Saturday.
The visitors have been playing hot and cold since the very start of the season. The only constancy is the poor record on the road where Macaca is yet to clinch the first victory.
Moreover, Gilson Kleina’s men have failed to score a single goal in four of their five away fixtures so far in the season.
They will come into the game having suffered a home defeat to Palmeiras 1-2 last Saturday.
Avai vs Ponte Preta: Head to head
Avai will have the chance to make it all square at four wins a piece in the ninth head to head meeting with Ponte Preta.
Leao da Ilha have been much more successful in previous meetings with Macaca at Estadio Aderbal Ramos da Silva where they have three wins on the trot.
Avai vs Ponte Preta: Prediction
We see a massive value in backing the hosts to take advantage of the momentum and clinch the victory at the odds of 17/10.
Braver punters can even go with Avai to win to nil at sky-high 10/3 odds since are quite tough to break down, especially when they play on the home pitch (the clash with Fluminense was an exception).
