The 16th position Avaí will face a 2nd positioned Corinthians; a team that is coming from a defeat against Flamengo at the Copa Libertadores last Wednesday.
Avaí is just one point ahead of the relegation zone, and winning this match against Corinthians is crucial to enlarge the distance to the worst four teams in the league.
Corinthians is still alive in three competitions (Brasileirão, Copa do Brasil, and Copa Libertadores) and the effects of too many games in a small period are being shown on the field: lots of injured players and different rosters almost every game.
We will take a deeper look at the teams’ situations and pick one of the teams to win this game.

Why Bet on Avaí?
It can be a bit difficult to find positive things in a team that fights against relegation, but the truth is that Avaí plays good games at home and faces strong teams evenly. They lost most of the games because of individual defensive errors, which made all their strikers’ efforts unworthy.
Bissoli is one of the top scorers in the league – he has put 9 balls into the net -, scoring more than Hulk, Gabriel Barbosa, and Pedro. His great shots are helping Avaí to be alive in the league, along with the good plays of Muriqui and Pottker.
Avaí plays with technical and fast forwards that run after every single ball, making pressure throughout the whole game. That can be very difficult for Corinthians, especially playing in that irregular field.
Why Bet on Corinthians?
Head Coach Vitor Pereira is being praised week by week because of what he can extract from this regular team of Corinthians. The Portuguese coach is managing the team very well, achieving the second position of the Brasileirão and getting further to the cups.
Corinthians is a better team when the stars can play. And there are many of them in Corinthians: Willian, Paulinho, Renato Augusto, Yuri Alberto, Roger Guedes, Fágner. They aren’t always available to play, due to some injuries, but it’s a fact that the roster is very good for the national competition.
Final Betting Analysis: Avaí vs. Corinthians
We can expect some surprises in this game. Avaí has lost five of its six games, while Corinthians has won three of the last five in different competitions.
This can be that game that tricks everyone. Although Corinthians fights for the title and Avaí tries to earn a point to avoid relegation, we believe we will have a balanced game this Saturday afternoon.
We’ll go for the surprising result: a 2-1 win for Avaí.
