Chapecoense vs Vitoria
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 14 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Arena Conda (Chapeco).
Vitoria are struggling badly in Serie A going into this weekend’s fixture with Chapecoense away at Arena Conda. Leao da Barra enter the relegation six-pointer in a disastrous shape having lost four on the spin in the competition.
Such streak dropped them down into the danger area with ten games left to play. Verdao overcame their Sunday rivals with a narrow 1-0 victory over Atletico Miniero last weekend and they will enter the match in much higher spirits.
It was Agustin Doffo whose late stoppage-time goal made all the difference last Saturday. It was his third goal of the season. Leandro Pereira is still topping team’s goalscoring charts with seven to his name so far in the campaign. The Brazilian forward will no doubts be the main target up front here against Vitoria as well.
Chapecoense vs Vitoria: Head-to-head
Outfits snatched three wins apiece ahead of their eight head to head encounter.
Chapecoense won both of last term meetings with Vitoria, but it’s Leao da Barra who clinched a 1-0 victory when teams came across each other this season.
Interestingly, four of last five head to head affairs saw goals scored at both ends.
Chapecoense vs Vitoria: Prediction
We have to fancy the hosts to pick up the spoils here based on the current form. Vitoria lost four on the trot conceding as many as nine goals along the way (more than two per game). They’ve really been dreadful travellers so far (1 win, 3 draws and 10 losses in 14 away matches in the season).
Verdao, on the other side, lost just 2 of 14 home games in the campaign and they head into this with three wins in last four home matches in Serie A. Vitoria bagged just ten goals in 14 away fixtures in the season. This being a relegation six-pointer, we can hardly see them in a host of goal-scoring chances on Sunday at Arena Conda.
