Avaí vs Palmeiras: Avaí hosts Palmeiras this Monday on a Brazilian Serie A’s match at the Ressacada…
Palmeiras has failed their title defence and had a very frustrating season considering the investments made at the start of their campaign.
After early eliminations from the Copa Libertadores and Copa do Brasil, and without any chances of winning the title, the final stretch of this Brazilian Serie A will have merely financial objectives for Palmeiras.
That’s because whoever finished 2nd wins some millions of Brazilian Real more as a prize. The team is coming off 2 wins over Flamengo and Sport.
They sit in 3rd place on the league table with 60 points, 1 points behind Grêmio, which is precisely their rivals for that 2nd spot in the league.

Is there still salvation for Avaí? Since the start of the season everyone knew that Avaí would have to fight to avoid relegation.
In certain moments of the season, the team even gave the impression that they could react and save themselves from being relegated, but on this final stretch, the team’s performance levels have dropped too much and escaping relegation seems to be a tough task.
The team is 19th with 36 points and to think about saving themselves, they need to win every remaining match and count with a mix of other results.
Avaí vs Palmeiras – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Is it possible? It is… But the team’s form isn’t very inspiring. The team only had 1 victory on their last 7 matches and they aren’t in great form, despite the good result against Cruzeiro in Minas Gerais.
Palmeiras are favourites here. But I believe that Avaí’s need will end up providing a match with goals. Palmeiras has every condition to score, but Avaí’s situation should also make them go on the attack.
