Fluminense vs Avai Prediction
Things have not been going that well in front of goal for Fluminense recently, with the side failing to score in 3 of the last 5 games. But they tend to perform better at home recently with the side winning 3 of their last 5 home matches.
Meanwhile, Avai is poor on road as they have won only once from their last 13 away games across various competitions. The visiting side won only one away fixture in Serie A and their last meeting has ended on a draw.
Since the visitors remain awful on road, we envisage a home win this Sunday.
