Avai FC vs Sao Paulo
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 9th June 2019
Kick-off at 01.00 UK/ 02.00 CET
Venue: Ressacada (Florianópolis).
Avai has not won a single game yet this season in the Serie A. Only two teams share that distinction in the league, one being Avai, and the other the bottom-most Vasco.
It’s been ten match-days since Avai recorded a win, and it’s slowly getting to the nerves of the fans. The last day, the team took on Internacional on the road and returned with a 2-0 loss. They did fight till late into the game, only to lose the plot at the end. Each of the first two substitutions by the home team was right away effective, presenting them with a goal mere minutes later.
Sao Paulo is quite high in league standings, compared to their counterparts for this tie. However, the team too is going through a rough patch. While they have not been dominated outright, the squad is finding it tough to post points on the board consistently.
Sao Paulo hosted Cruzeiro at home the last match-day, only to be disheartened with a late equalizer goal, after leading for most of the game. To top it off, they were reduced to ten, as the ref had to brandish red.

Avai FC vs Sao Paulo Prediction
Avai is easily the worst team in the league along with Vasco. The former has not won a single game yet in the Serie A, and they have scored the fewest number of goals so far.
At home, there has been no worse team than Avai, and stats prove it beyond doubt. They have not been able to present a win for home fans, and the team has recorded the fewest number of goals at home too.
Meanwhile, Sao Paulo may be going through a hard run right now, but they are one of the best teams on the road in Brazil. Except for a single fixture, the team won all of their ties away from home.
Importantly, Sao Paulo is unbeaten against Avai since 2015. Count on them to put an end to their bad form against the low-lying Avai.
