Santos vs Avai Prediction 3 December 2017

Tournament: Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A
Location: Estadio Urbano Caldeira
Match date: 03.12.2017 at 19:00

On December 3 2017 at 19:00 at the Estadio Urbano Caldeira in the last 38th game of the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A the local Santos will play against Avai.

The fact that Gremio won Copa Libertadores gave Brazil one more place in that competition and it reduced the concurrence between the leaders of the league at the end of the season. This time six teams will have a chance to take part in the Copa Libertadores. Anyway, Santos have already solved this problem. They are on the 4th position with 62 points gained 6 points above their closest rivals Cruzeiro from the fifth position. They can actually try to firth for the third position with Gremio and yet they don’t seem to be very motivated in it. Santos are also missing a few important players in the squad and that’s another reason why we think that they may not gain their three points this time.

As for Avai, they haven’t solved their problems in the current season yet. They are still competing for staying in the national elite division as they have 42 points just like Sport Recife and they both take their places on the edge of the relegation zone. There are also two teams with 43 points gained. They are Vitoria and Coritiba. So, those four teams will be fighting for staying in the league in the last game week of the current season.

Avai need to try their best in the upcoming match to gain those necessary three points and they also need at least one of their competitors to make a mistake. As you see, the visitors will be extremely motivated in the upcoming match. They will also have their forward Durita back to the squad in the most important game of the season which will definitely help them this time.

Avai spent most of the season near the bottom of the table and yet they became much more stable at the end of it. In the latest three matches they drew Cruzeiro and won against Palmeiras and Atletico Paranaense. Considering all of the facts mentioned above, we think that the visitors will be the favorites of the upcoming match and they will manage at least not to lose this time.
