Palmeiras vs Avai FC
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Friday, 14th June 2019
Kick-off at 00.00 UK/ 01.00 CET
Venue: Allianz Parque (Sao Paulo).
It’s a match-up between the best team in the competition and the worst of the lot. And to add insult to injury, the best is at home too.
Palmeiras has been stripped three points by the Federation, and the setback has not seemed to affect them. They are at the top of the table, with a lead of two points over Santos, the second-placed team.
The team has been the best in almost all of the major stats. They are the only unbeaten side in the league as of now, they have scored the most number of goals, conceded the least, and possesses a perfect record at home with not a goal conceded yet in front of the home crowd.
Avai, on the other hand, is the only winless team in Serie A. On the road, except for a solitary draw, the team has lost all of their road trips. It’s really asking too much from a minnow to take on the best and hit with the away handicap as well.

Palmeiras vs Avai Prediction
Palmeiras is easily the best team in the competition, while Avai is the worst. On top of that, the former has an additional home advantage to even further their domination.
Palmeiras has scored the most goals, conceded the least, and is yet to lose a tie. In fact, if not for a single draw, the team would have boasted of a 100% winning record in Serie A, whereas none of the others even have a 100% unbeaten record to speak of.
On the same note, Avai is the only side yet to win a tie, and away from home, except for a draw, they have lost all of their fixtures. Importantly, at home, Palmeiras has a perfect record, with every match resulting in a win, and astonishingly they have not even conceded a goal at home till now.
By all means, expect a huge win for the hosts.
