One of the weaknesses of the blue and white team during the turn was the defense, a sector that Claudinei Oliveira managed to bring consistency, which resulted in a sequence of seven more games without defeats, suffering only one goal, scoring 12, and with the insertion in the G4 materializing.
The final nine rounds were a mix of anxiety and joy for the Azurra fans, the Lion went well, suffered only one defeat in this period, and won access with a round in advance, after defeat Londrina by 1 to 0, at Estádio do Café, with a goal from Diego Jardel. Avaí said goodbye to Serie B with 1-1 draw against Brasil de Pelotas, concluding the best campaign in its history in the competition, finishing with 66 points, achieving the vice-championship of the tournament and creating positive expectations for 2017.
