Abel Braga can be proud of the job his men have been doing since the start of the season. Flu sit fifth in the Brasilierao ladder after six opening ties and they successfully jumped over the first hurdle in Copa Sudamericana beating Bolivian Nacional Potosi 3-2 on aggregate.

The story is somewhat different with Verdao who will head into the game low on confidence having suffered a true disaster falling 3-0 away at Internacional on Monday evening.

Fluminense vs Chapecoense: Head-to-head

  • Fluminense are yet to record their first ever victory over Verdao.
  • Chapecoense won six and drew two of eight H2H games between the two sides.
  • Last term’s meetings saw Chapecoense bag five goals in two outings against Tricolor (a win and a draw for Chapeco).

Fluminense vs Chapecoense: Prediction

Maintaining such an impressive attacking trend in H2H games will be quite a serious task for Chapecoense here given that Fluminense are very tough to break down at the start of the season. This can particularly be said for Tricolor’s home matches as Abel Braga’s men allowed only a single goal in three league games at Maracana.

Chapecoense are struggling badly with the efficiency on travels this term having notched no more than one goal in last four games on the road across competitions. We thus have to take Fluminense to keep a clean sheet at the 2.20 odds as the main betting option. The hosts are obviously favourites to grab the spoils and capitalize on the 2-0 win over Atletico PR.

Fluminense vs Chapecoense: Bet Tips

  • Fluminense to keep a clean sheet @ 2.20
  • Fluminense to win @ 1.70.
