Santos vs Avai for the Brazilian Serie A championship match on Sunday at Urbano Caldeira Stadium.
Next Sunday, July 28th, 2019, Santos and Avai face each other for a match counting for the 12th round of Serie A (Brazil). The game kicks-off at 20:00 at Vila Belmiro Stadium (São Paulo). The 2nd ranked against the 20th in the table.
Santos is currently in a very definite form and has proven successful in their last four league games, regardless of whether they are at home or away. Their previous two away matches ended with a score of 1-0 in their favour at the end of the ninety minutes.
The hosts’ last win at home against Corinthians led Eduardo to score the only goal of the game, guaranteeing his team’s victory. The team was impressive in both attack and defence in that match and made nineteen goal attempts while restricting their opponents from scoring more than two.
Avai have not yet won a match in their campaign so far. Visitors have alternated between a loss or a draw in all of their games. They drew Goias in their previous home game, while away they got a 2-0 loss.
The draw on Sunday is more than likely that runner-up Santos will drop Avaí, which cannot fall further below the table as it has already hit rock bottom.
Clashes between the two teams
The teams met on twelve occasions.
Avai recorded only two wins against Santos.
Their last meeting saw Avaí draw with Santos 1-1.
The hosts are unbeaten at home and have accumulated nine goals in the process, conceding only twice. In three of the last five home matches, Santos has not conceded a goal.
I hope Santos win at halftime without much effort.
