Avaí take on visitors Vitoria at Estádio Aderbal Ramos da Silva in this Serie B clash on Wednesday.
Our Avaí v Vitoria predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - plus the latest match odds.
Avaí, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-1 Serie B success against Grêmio Esportivo Brasil.
Under three goals per match were seen in 5 of the last 6 fixtures where Avaí have been involved. With regard to the goal split during that period, opposing sides scored an aggregate of 5 and Leão da Ilha managed a tally of 5.
Their prior results show that Avaí:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Vitoria in their last 3 games.
- have not won at home in their last 4 league matches. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to América Mineiro in Serie B action, Vitoria and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
It is worth noting that Vitoria have failed to get amongst the goals over their last six encounters, contributing the disappointing return of only 3. In those fixtures, Leão da Barra have also seen the overall goal aggregate against them equal 11. Such a trend might not be sustained into this game, of course.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Vitoria:
- haven't been beaten by Avaí when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league games.
- are without an away win for the past 4 matches in the league.

Team News: Avaí
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Avaí gaffer to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Rildo (Hamstring Injury) misses out. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Renatinho and Getulio.
Team News: Vitoria
Owing to a completely healthy group to choose from, Vitoria boss Eugênio Geninho doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash.
We’re thinking that Vitoria should be able to score against this Avaí side, although it probably won’t be enough to prevent defeat.
We reckon that it will be a narrow 2-1 advantage for Avaí when all is said and done. Let’s see what happens here.
