Under 2.5 goals at Oeste vs Avai 3/5 for Friday’s Serie B showdown
Competition: Brazil Serie B
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 3/5 @ 888sport
In what could be a low-scoring encounter between two of the Serie B strugglers at the start of the new campaign, Oeste will host Avai late on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, enduring what has been an extremely worrying start to the new Serie B campaign, Oeste already find themselves at the heart of a relegation battle. In their opening five second-tier contests this season, they have recorded two draws against three defeats and are one of just four sides yet to get maximum points on the board. Scoring just three and conceding seven in return, it should also be noted that Oeste currently hold the third-worst attacking record in the division. Collecting just two points out of a possible 15, the hosts open Friday’s meeting sat down in 19th spot. As for their previous run of results, failing to win any of their last seven matchups across all formats, it should also be highlighted that Oeste have failed to win any of their last nine Serie B matchups on home soil.
As for the visitors, also enduring what has been their own sluggish run of form since making their Serie B return over the summer, Avai are in the midst of a real crisis. In their opening four second-tier matchups this season, they have recorded just a single win against three defeats, scoring three and conceding five in return. Along with collecting just three points out of a possible 12, only their goal difference keeps them outside of the drop zone. As for their recent run of results, Avai have lost each of their last three Serie B contests on the bounce and even more worrying for Friday’s guests, they have failed to record a single consolation strike in any of those three defeats. With each of the last six meetings between the two sides seeing under 2.5 goals by full-time, we’re backing a similar outcome this week.
