Palmeiras vs Avai Match Preview
Palmeiras host Avai for their Matchday 9 clash as Serie A pace-setters with 22 points to their name and a five-point gap to the 2nd placed Santos, looking to build on their nine-match winning streak after beating Chapecoense (1-2) and Athletico Paranaense (1-0) last week.
Verdao have been rock-solid in front of the home fans and they’ll now hope to keep the perfect run going, having kept clean sheets in all of their league outings here as well as the Copa Libertadores clashes against Junior (3-0) and San Lorenzo (1-0).
Avai sit on the other end of the campaign and we’ve seen them struggling for points on the road, bagging just one in four trips so far. They’ve had troubles finding the net and while the held Sao Paulo to a goalless draw last time out, that being the second time they failed to get on the scoresheet in a row will be more worrying.
Indeed, Leao da Ilha have seen a 2-0 loss at Internacional beforehand and bagged just one goal in three away games since early May, where they saw Bahia narrowly secure the points and snatched just one in a 1-1 draw at similarly struggling Vasco da Gama. Getting more at pace-setters will surely be an even tougher task.
We don’t feel they can do so and we’ll now back Palmeiras to secure the points with confidence, as we go for a Home win to Nil at 8/13 with Ladbrokes with hope we’ll see more of the same from Luiz Felipe Scolari’s men.
Still, we’ve seen them turning narrow clashes their way on the regular and we thus hope to see another such contest at Allianz Parque, as we go for a low-scoring game with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 10/11 with Unibet – which has caught a lot of attention with those in the know already.
