Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming Serie A games of the weekend.
As we prepare for another matchday of the Serie A campaign, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming games.
Let’s check out three betting tips for Matchday 17 of the Brazilian top-flight.
Back Santos to beat Avai
Santos ended a three-game winless run when they defeated Atletico Goianiense last Sunday.
We expect the eighth-placed side to repeat their success when they face Avai this weekend.
Avai haven’t won any of their last four matches, conceding ten goals in the process.
The hosts’ unstable defence will most likely provide Santos with enough chances to outscore their opponents in the upcoming match.
On the other hand, we expect Santos‘ in-form defence to keep Avai at bay for most of the game.
Expect goals on both sides when Bragantino take on America MG
Bragantino crushed Avai 4-0 last Saturday to celebrate their first victory in four matches.
Despite their struggle to win matches, however, Bragantino have registered impressive attacking stats lately.
They have scored 12 goals in their last five matches, and we expect them to find the back of the net when they meet America MG this weekend.
On the other hand, a combination of Bragantino’s poor defensive form and America MG’s great displays at home convinces us that the hosts will also find enough goalscoring chances.
Don’t expect goals when Athletico Paranaense host Internacional
Following a narrow win over America MG last week, Internacional must continue their Serie A campaign with a match against Athletico Paranaense.
Athletico will most likely struggle to get past Internacional’s defence, who haven’t conceded more than one goal in any of their last three matches.
However, Internacional’s underwhelming goalscoring numbers away from home convince us they might also find it hard to score in the upcoming match.
We expect both sides to take a conservative approach to the game, leaving little room for goals on both sides.
