Internacional vs Avaí FC, Sunday’s match for the seventh round of the Brazilian Series A Championship.
Colorado had three games, so far, in their stadium in Brasileirão. It is the basis of the ten points that put them in seventh place at the start of the matchday seven of Series A in its 2019 edition.
Although in the tournament the results in the condition of visitor still are far from being considered satisfactory, at least in the Brazilian Cup, Internacional reached the victory on Wednesday, May 29, against Paysandu.
In Belém, they won 1 to 0, ensuring their passage to the quarterfinals of the competition completing the service they had started by scoring 3 to 1 in Porto Alegre. With this, they extended their invincible sequence to six games.
The game this Sunday will mark the farewell of striker Paolo Guerrero. The player was called by the Peruvian national team and is due to present himself on Monday, June 3, to begin the preparation for the 2019 Copa America, which will have Brazil as its headquarters.
He should have as a teammate in the starting lineup D’Alessandro. The Argentinian lost his way to the reserve bench in the last two games to avoid further injury and is expected to be back in the main squad in an attempt to give Colorado more power.
Avaí is close to completing two months without winning a single victory. This Sunday’s game is their last chance to prevent this milestone from being hit. The most recent success was recorded on April 7. This was when they played for the Santa Catarina Championship, when the team beat Chapecoense, in Chapecó, by 2 to 1.
Since then, they played nine games. The last match included in this list made the sequence even more worrying. In the sixth round of the Brazilian Championship, at home, they took 2 to 1 from Ceará, considered a direct competitor in the fight against relegation.
Staying in the three points, the team from Santa Catarina occupies the nineteenth – penultimate – position in the leaderboard. Have the same points as Vasco, who are only in last place due to goal average.
For the duel of this Sunday there is doubt as to who will be the substitute of the striker Brenner, who was loaned to Avaí by Internacional and cannot play due to the contractual clause that prevents him from acting against the club that holds his economic rights.
Matheus Matias is considered the greatest candidate to take the post. Daniel Amorim is another option.
Faced with a very limited Avaí, the prognostic in the success of Internacional is the best option for this Sunday’s match for the seventh round of the Brazilian Championship
