Chapecoense vs CS Alagoano
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 5 December 2019
Kick-off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Arena Condá (Chapecó).
Chapecoense have already ensured their relegation, while CSA are on the verge of it. The latter not only need to win their remaining two fixtures but hope that the teams higher up the ladder lose their games as well. As such, a desperate Alagoano should secure a win against the demotivated hosts.

Chapecoense vs CS Alagoano Prediction
Chapecoense had taken on Santos on the road the last match-day. In the hugely mismatched battle, former champions Santos easily secured a 2-0 win. The Chapecoense players who had no reason to go after the win had already given up even before they entered the pitch – a likely scenario that is expected this Thursday as well.
CSA missed a draw at home by a whisker the prior game week, as they welcomed Bahia. The scoreline was 1-1 in the closing stages of the game, and the visitors were one man short on the field as well due to a red card. But still, they managed to fire in the winner just four minutes from full time.
This Thursday, the biggest factor to take into account will be the mental states of both sets of players. While CSA will be ready for a do-or-die battle and will be ready to even bleed on the pitch for the win, their counterparts would just want the season to come to an end.
Moreover, consider the 100% h2h win record of CSA too, and this picks them out as the top choice to win the fixture.
However, as mentioned earlier, Alagoano are desperate. They will commit mistakes under pressure and coupled with the home advantage, Chapecoense should find the back of the net at least once.
