Fluminense vs Chapecoense AF
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 4th July 2017
Kick-off at 0:00 UK/ 1:00 CET
Venue: Maracana (Rio de Janeiro).
Fluminense and Chapecoense will be looking to inject some momentum into their game when they lock horns on Monday evening.
Fluminense are positioned at 8th in the league table, but this is due to the three wins they picked up from the first four games of the season. They are in a spot of bother with only 1 win coming from the next six games, which also includes 3 draws and 2 losses.
The home record is pretty decent for this Fluminense side with them falling to defeat just once in 5 games so far, 2 wins and 2 draws.
On the other hand, Chapecoense are in a horrible run of form. Just like their Monday’s opponent, Chapeco started the season on a bright note with three wins and a draw from their first four matches. Since then they lost 5 of their six games.
Poor defending is the main reason for Chapeco’s downfall. They conceded 18 goals from the last 6 games. Also, they are a team on low morale after being comprehensively beaten in the last three outings.
Fluminense vs Chapecoense: Head-to-head
Chapecoense are unbeaten in the last six meetings against Fluminense, all of which came in Serie A games. There has been 5 wins and 1 draw during the period.
Also, Chapeco boast of a 100% win record during the period, scoring a minimum of 2 goals in those 3 games.
Fluminense vs Chapecoense: Prediction
This is a tough one to call with both teams in the midst of a dismal run. Fluminense look like the slightly better side after bringing some confidence into their game with their three match unbeaten run. But a home win is not guaranteed here, with Chapecoense dominating Fluminense in the Serie A clashes over the last three seasons. The better is to focus on goal markets due to the teams leaky defense.
