Avaí challenge Juventude for kudos and victory.

Insights:
  • Avaí have won all their matches at home so far.
  • Juventude have yet to win a game.

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only three days ago in the Copa do Brasil. That game was also an away game, at São Paulo. It will be interesting to see if they are fully ready and rested for this match, and/or if some changes in the lineup is necessary.
