Palmeiras vs Avai
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Saturday, 29th July 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Parque.
Avai have significantly improved their defensive displays in comparison to the very start of the new Serie A season, but the run of three consecutive matches without a defeat will be heavily challenged this Saturday when they travel to Allianz Parque for the meeting with the defending champions in the 17th round of the competition.
Palmeiras were off to a slow start to the title defense quest, but their campaign seems to be back on track as they are undefeated in last four fixtures in all competitions.
Verdao ended their Copa do Brasil run in the quarterfinal after playing a 1.1 draw with Cruzeiro who went through to the last four thanks to an away goal rule.
Palmeiras have previously bagged at least two goals in three consecutive Serie A outings against Vitoria, Flamengo and Sport Recife.
Avai seemed destined to get relegated after the first couple of rounds, but Claudinei Oliveira’ s men managed to find the chemistry at the back to get on the brink of the safe zone after a series of positive results.
Leao da Ilha kept consecutive clean sheets against the super strong attacking squads of Corinthians and Cruzeiro in last two matches.
Palmeiras vs Avai: Head to head
Verdao have completely dominated this match-up winning ten of 13 H2H meetings with Avai.
The visitors have managed to leave Allianz Parque undefeated only once in six matches and they have lost each of their last six encounters with Palmeiras.
