Avai vs Santos
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 6th August 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Aderbal Ramos da Silva.
Santos will have a fantastic opportunity to stay in touch with Corinthians and Gremio at the top of the Serie A standings as they travel to Estadio Aderbal Ramos da Silva to take on the relegation-threatened Avai side in the last game for the day on Sunday evening.
The league’s newcomers will have a mountain to climb in order to avoid an immediate drop to Serie B football.
Claudinei Oliveira was furious with his men’s display at the back in a demolishing 5-0 defeat to Atletico PR in mid-week.
This has made it two losses on the trot without a single goal scored for Leao da Ilha who will have a very tough task to end this horrendous run against in-form Santos this Sunday.
Peixe have been red-hot in the final third recently as they bagged at least three goals in three of their last four outings.
Levir Culpi’s men are thus now on a streak of seven wins and two draws in their last nine matches and it is indeed hard to expect anything else but the continuation of such trend against the struggling Avai side.
The latest of the successes came on Wednesday evening when Santos dispatched Flamengo 3-2 on the home court.
Avai vs Santos: Head to head
Santos have completely dominated this match-up in the recent history as Peixe have won three of their last four meetings with Leao da Ilha.
Also, it is very interesting to note that nine of ten head to head matches played between these two likes saw the option of both teams netting.
Avai vs Santos: Prediction
The value is just huge in backing Santos to leave Estadio Aderbal Ramos da Silva victorious at the odds of 8/5.
The visitors have been enjoying a hot run of form up front and we’d be stunned to see them failing to produce at least two goals this Sunday.
