Cruzeiro vs Avai – Brazilian Serie A: Cruzeiro no longer has anything to worry about this season…
They are no longer fighting for the title and they have already ensured their Libertadores’ spot due to winning the Copa do Brasil.
However, for those who followed the team’s last matches, they have shown some desire to win, without worrying too much.
Excluding the match against Flamengo, where the team didn’t play well, they got 2 victories at home against Fluminense and Atlético-PR and a draw away from home, where they’ve played really well, against Palmeiras.
To help out on our decision for this match, I’ll take into consideration the good defence the team has had this season, which is the 4th best in the league.
Avaí is desperate. Sitting in the penultimate position and with a very tough road upon them (Cruzeiro, Palmeiras, Atlético-PR and Santos)
the team has even left the impression that they’ll play these last matches to honor the clubs’ shirt, which means they are almost resigned to accept relegation.
Looking at their numbers on this campaign, their situations is so dire much thanks to the team’s terrible attack, since they’ve only scored 23 goals in 34 matches.
Cruzeiro vs Avai – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This is a slightly riskier bet due to the disparity of necessities between these two sides.
However, Avaí’s attack always leaves me confident in taking the Under, both teams not to score or even the double of the home side and both teams not to score, which is the case on this match.
On the last round, also playing away from home, Avaí, as expected, failed to score again, losing 1-0 to Corinthians on a match where they practically didn’t create any goal chances.
