Bottom Club Avai Search for First Win

The action in the Brazilian Serie A concludes on Sunday 21st July with a clash between Avai and Goias at the Estádio Aderbal Ramos da Silva, Santa Catarina.

This is a very important game for the hosts who are aiming to move off the bottom of the Serie A table.  They have just 4 points to their name from ten games played and that leaves them 5 points adrift from safety.  A win could close that gap significantly.

Goias begin the weekend in 7th place and have the possibility of moving up to 5th if they win and other results go their way.

It has been a disastrous start to the season for Avai and they are yet to win a game in the league. Last weekend they lost 2-0 at Fortaleza and the that was their second 2-0 defeat in succession following the 2-0 loss at Palmeiras.

Trends show Avai have lost four of their last five Serie A matches, with the only point coming in a 0-0 home draw with Sao Paulo.  Avai have failed to score a single goal across their last four league games and they need to start finding the back of the net if they are to move off the bottom of the table.

Home form shows Avai have failed to win any of their four home Serie A matches this season, losing one and drawing three.  They have scored just 2 goals in those four games and the fans will be hoping to see a better performance in this match.

Goias make the trip to Santa Catarina looking to recover from a heavy 6-1 loss at the hands of Flamengo last weekend. The score was level at 1-1 after just 12 minutes but Goias were blown away by the hosts, conceding 3 more goals before half-time.

Trends show that was their first defeat in three games having defeated Chapecoense and Athletico Paranaense at home.  However, Goias have lost each of their last three away Serie A matches and will see this game as the perfect opportunity to get back to winning ways on the road.

Prior to the three successive defeats, Goias beat Fluminense 1-0 away from home, which was a good result.  Goias have scored an average of 0.75 goals in their away Serie A matches this season.

Team news and Avai are without Marquinhos who has a knee injury and Alex Silva who is expected to miss the rest of the season.  Matheus Barbosa, Getulio and Jonny Mosquera are doubtful.

Goias travel without David Duarte who has a long term knee problem.  Kayke is a key player in attack and the leading scoring should start up-front in this game.

Goias are not in the best of form away from home but Avai have been poor all season.  They will be desperate to win this match but Goias have already won five of their nine league games this season and could make it six with a low scoring win.
