Alike to the hosts of the matchup, last season Avai promoted to the elite division from the Serie B. “Leaos da Ilha” come up to the forthcoming battle with three-game no-win run. In general, the side picked up five points with 3-9 goal difference in seven clashes and sits on the 19th position in the table. Avai demonstrate mediocre results on the road: four losses with no points gained and 1-8 goal difference in four encounters.
Last season Avai got four points in their head-to-heads against Vasco da Gama in the Serie B: “Leaos da Ilha” recorded 2:1 triumph at the home ground and 0:0 draw on the road. Taking into consideration the rivals’ performances in this season, the hosting side is the favourite of the upcoming fight and it is quite able to pick up three points as this season Avai show poor football at away grounds, especially in offense.
Prediction for the match: Vasco da Gama to win.
