Palmeiras vs Avai (By: Enzo)

Palmeiras had difficulties breaking up the defense of Atletico Paranaense last time out, but other than that, completely dominated the field and looked more superior.

Still, they needed all the way till the 80th minute and a penalty kick to convert their efforts into that single goal.

They now have nine consecutive victories in all competitions, five in the Serie A with just one goal conceded in those nine games. The team looks rock solid at the back and is a huge favorite in this one.

The hosts have central back Luan (4/0) as doubtful for this one, same as right back Mayke (1/0). Away on international duty is central back Gomez (5/2).

Avai, on the other side, comes from very defensive performance in front of own fans against Sao Paolo.

However, it was the way to go as the team pulled out a point in a goalless game against a stronger opponent. They even threatened in the second on some occasions, but overall will be satisfied with such an outcome.

The team, however, remains last at the table with a 0-4-4 record, for now, only four goals scored and nine conceded.

Offensive midfielder Luanzinho (6/0) and forward Brenner (3/1) are both suspended after collecting three-yellow cards suspension. Injured are right back Alex Silva (1/0) and central back Marquinhos Silva (4/0).

Even though Avail remains at the last position, they don't look to me as such an easy opponent. On the contrary, they do score rarely but are also extremely difficult to break in the defense.

Palmeiras remains a huge favorite, but if they repeat anything similar to what they did in the previous match, they won't score too many goals here either.

The hosts didn't react that well or had an easy fashioned game when the opponent opted for full defense. One goal can always change everything and this remains a risky bet, but also full of value this time.
