Flamengo vs Avai FC Prediction
Flamengo were on the road the last match-day against current title-holders Palmeiras and still managed to record a 1-3 win. Meanwhile, Avai were at home and were held to a 1-1 draw by Fluminense.
This Thursday, consider that the best team in the competition is taking on the worst. Flamengo might even be the best team in the whole continent, and on top of that, have the home advantage to lean on as well.
On the other hand, Avai have to deal with the away handicap, and more than that, they might not find a reason to fight on, considering their impending relegation.
Moreover, consider that Flamengo are on a 28-match unbeaten run in overall games, of which 23 were wins. At home, they are on a 24-match unbeaten run and had won 21 of these fixtures. Meanwhile, Avai are on a 16-match winless streak and lost 13 amongst those. On the road, they are on a winless run of eight fixtures and lost seven of these last eight.
Finally, Flamengo have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition, 80, while the next best is just 60. On the other hand, Avai have scored the least, and have conceded the most.
Taking into account all these observations, anticipate a crushing win for Flamengo this Thursday.
