Avai: Three consecutive losses (Recent Form: LLLWWL)
Avai are on 19th place in Brazilian Serie A with 16 points (3 wins, 7 draws, 13 losses; goal difference 13:36). They are currently in the relegation zone, being 7 points short of 16th Ceara (safe spot). Therefore, Avai appear to be one of the main relegation candidates at the moment. The team is in rather poor shape – 2 wins, 0 draws, 3 losses in last 5 league matches, with 3 straight defeats. They need to improve, otherwise things will get very complicated. Avai take on Vasco on Friday in the next league fixture. Avai have collected 9 points in 11 home games to date (1 win, 6 draws, 4 defeats; goal difference 6:13). It’s worth noting that they have the worst home statistics of all sides in the league.
Vasco: In average shape (Recent Form: LWLDWL)
Vasco sit on 13th position in the standings with 27 points (7 wins, 6 draws, 10 defeats; goal difference 21:30). They are now 5 points ahead of 17th CSA (drop zone), whereas Vasco are equal on points with 12th Botafogo RJ (Copa Sudamericana). Their recent form is average – 2 wins, 1 draw, 2 defeats in last 5 games in Serie A. Now it’s time for an away encounter. Vasco have collected 11 points in 11 matches on the road (3 wins, 2 draws, 6 losses; goal difference 9:16).
THE BETTING VERDICT:
All in all, I think that visitors are favourites of this clash. Avai are clearly struggling these days and they are generally getting bad results in front of their fans. On the other hand, Vasco perform averagely in the recent time. In my opinion the away side may be able to get a positive result in this outing.
