Chapecoense vs Atletico PR
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Friday, 14 September 2018
Kick-Off at 00:00 UK / 01:00 CET
Venue: Arena Conda, Chapeco.
A real buzz is expected in and around Arena Conda on Thursday evening when Chapecoense host fellow relegation strugglers Atletico PR in a match of a massive importance.
The hosts will be desperate to bring the horrendous thread of five losses and a draw in last six games to an end.
Furacao seem to be just the perfect opposition for such achievement given the visitors also come into the game low on confidence after losing back-to-back fixtures to Palmeiras and Atletico Mineiro.
Nevertheless, Verdao will have to produce a much better showing if they want a result knowing that Atletico were on a four-win run before these losses.
There are five games separating the two teams at this stage. Verdao are two points shy of the safe zone with a game in hand on most relegation rivals, while Atletico sit five points above in the league ladder.
Chapecoense vs Atletico PR: Head-to-head
The draw was by far the most common of outcomes in the history of head to head games between these two likes.
It happened on 7 occasions in 11 matches.
Verdao won just one in the process.
Atletico PR were ruthless when the two teams met in this term of Serie A back in mid-April, winning 5-1 on the home patch.
Chapecoense vs Atletico PR: Prediction
The draw seems to be the most likable of three outcomes this time about as well. Neither of two teams can afford a failure here, especially the hosts who head into the match in lower spirits in general.
From the betting perspective, the value is with Furacao not to lose at the odds of 1.72 given they’ve really been playing well under Tiago Nunes ever since he arrived on the bench in June.
Atletico had a tough schedule in matches with Palmeiras and Atletico Mineiro, but the affair with the struggling Chapecoense should give them a chance to bounce back.
Since we expect a huge tension, it’s hard to see a big number of goal-scoring chances, meaning the Under 2.5 goals FT seems to be the ideal alternative option at the odds of 1.44.
