Brazil Serie A / Avai FC SC vs Fortaleza Preview


The Serie A meeting at Estádio Aderbal Ramos da Silva on Thursday sees home team Avaí doing battle with Fortaleza.

Avai FC SC
Avai's 1-0 away win over Botafogo in the last round, their first win in six matches, gave the team a morale boost. And their home form has been good, taking 10 points from five games at home, 8th in the league.

Last time out, Fortaleza drew 0-0 in the Serie A match with Atletico PR. The numbers tell their own story, and Fortaleza have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 7 goals in total. At the back, Fortaleza have not been doing too well. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward here, of course.

When taking all factors into account, Fortaleza and Avaí are both capable of scoring here. Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a draw. We’re therefore tipping a close game with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of the match.

Pick: Avai+0.25
