Avaí and Criciúma meet at Estádio Aderbal Ramos da Silva, in a match for the 8th round of the Serie B. The head‑to‑head record at this stadium favours the away team, since in the last 5 head‑to‑heads they won 3, tied 1 and lost 1. Accordingly, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Catarinense 1, on 22‑03‑2018, Criciúma won by (1‑2). Romulo (9' ) scored for Avaí and Andrew (72' ) and Lucas Coelho (76' ) for Criciúma. Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

Analysis of Avaí

After 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, the home team is in the 3rd position, havinf won 14 points so far. In the last match, they have won at home against Paysandu by (3‑1), after in the previous match they have won (0‑4) an away match against CRB. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 5 wins, 7 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. In the last 10 home matches Avaí has won 3, tied 5 and lost 2. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 5 of the last 7 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 6 of the last 7 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 4 of their 15 matches, and have only turned the score around in 1.

Avaí is a Santa Catarina team with little tradition in Brazilian football, as they never managed to win the Brazilian Championship Series B but won the runner-up in 2016. In the Campeonato Catarinense this year, the team finished in the middle of the league table, in sixth place, and didn’t even fight for the title. Already in Serie B of the Brazilian Championship of 2018, the team is trying to stay at the top of the league table, being today five points behind second place, Fortaleza. In the last five matches that Avaí played as the home team, in all of them there were scored more than 1.5 goals and both teams scored their goals. We believe that in this match the standard will be maintained, mainly because Avaí is superior to their opponent and have full conditions to score their goals at the Ressacada stadium.

Confirmed Lineup: Aranha, Renato, Betão, Guga, Alemão, Capa, Airton, Matheus Barbosa, Pedro Castro, Rodrigão, Rômulo.
Coach: Geninho.

Analysis of Criciúma

The away team is currently in the 20th position of the league, with 1 point won, after 1 draw and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Juventude, by (0‑0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Fortaleza, by (2‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses in away matches, with 17 goals scored and 24 conceded; against 4 wins, 7 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 12 goals scored and 12 conceded.

In this competition, they have a sequence of 4 losses in the last away matches and they haven't won any of the last 7 matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 6 of the last 7 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

Criciúma is a Santa Catarina team that has twice won the Brazilian Serie B Championship, the last one won in 2002. Currently in the 2018 season, the team is in the lantern of the Brazilian Serie B Championship winning only one point so far after seven rounds. Their poor placement is due a lot to their campaign as a visiting team, where in four matches were four defeats. When analyzing the Criciúma visiting team’s campaign, we see that in four matches we had three with more than 1.5 goals, so we believe that once again, Criciúma will make a match with more than 1.5 goals. This much for the good offensive sector of Avaí and in account of the poor defensive sector of Criciúma.

Confirmed Lineup: Luiz Silva, Fábio Ferreira, Sueliton, Nino, Marlon, Elvis, Luiz Fernando, Eduardo, Jean, Zé Carlos, João Paulo.
Coach: Mazola Júnior.

Betting suggestion:

In this match between Avaí and Criciúma we will have Avaí as a favorite, both for playing at home and for their current place on the league table. So, it’s expectable a good use of the offensive sector of Avaí in contrast to the poor defensive performance of Criciúma. Then, we will probably have a match with more than 1.5 goals.
