Chapecoense vs Atletico GO
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 30th July 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Arena Conda.
Chapecoense will enter the match in high spirits after securing the advancement to the third round of Copa Sudamericana thanks to mid-week’s home win over Argentine Defensa y Justicia.
Vinicus Eutropio will want to see his men moving the good form to the domestic league where they are set to meet the rock-bottomed Atletico GO in the 17th round of the competition this Sunday at Arena Conda.
Chapecoense have had a rollercoaster campaign since the start of the season. They seem to be back on track after a dreadful period and a streak of seven subsequent games without a single goal.
Eutropio’s side now has three wins in last four outings in all competition and it has immediately brought them the jump to the 11th position in the league’s standings.
Atletico will also come into the game with an improved confidence after they managed to hold Botafogo to a 1-1 draw in the previous round.
However, the league’s newcomers are still lone at the very foot of the standings being eight points away from the safe zone after 16 rounds of the competition.
The new manager Joao Paulo Sanches failed to bring the much-needed refreshment since Dragao are still too easy to break down (the team allowed at least two goals in four of their last five fixtures).
Chapecoense vs Atletico GO: Head to head
This will be the first head to head encounter between the two teams since 2013 when they both featured the second tier of the Brazilian football.
Chapecoense have won the home fixture 3-0, while the rematch at Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira saw a goalless draw.
Chapecoense vs Atletico GO: Prediction
Chapecoense are again rock-solid at the back and we can easily see them keeping the clean sheet against the weakest attacking line of the competition.
The home win should be a banker at 1/2 odds, but we’ll try and catch the value and back Chapecoense to win to nil at 6/4 as the main betting prediction.
