Internacional vs Chapecoense: Preview and Predictions

Internacional vs Chapecoense
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 22 May 2018
Kick-Off at 00:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Jose Pinheiro Borda (Porto Alegre).

The closing match of the 6th round in Brazilian Serie A is going to be contested between Internacional and Chapecoense.

Home side has been recently promoted and after opening the season with a win, they haven’t celebrated in the last four matches. Andres D’Alessandro and the lads have been playing very tight so far and the crowd was able to see only five goals in total in their matches. When playing in front of the home crowd, Internacional have booked four points and haven’t allowed a single goal to their opponents.

Chapecoense are having a similar start as they are one point ahead of their rivals. After a defeat in the first round, they haven’t lost in the next four matches, but also have been involved in three draws. Gilson Kleina’s side have some troubles in defending their net as they conceded nine times so far. The visitors managed to snatch just a point when playing away from home.

Internacional vs Chapecoense: Head-to-head

Internacional managed to celebrate just in victory against their rivals in their six head to head clashes and the last two when they were the hosts ended with goalless draws. Every time these two sides faced each other, one of them were able to keep the clean sheet, and just one the match went over 2.5 margin.

Internacional vs Chapecoense: Prediction

This one should be another tight clash, but the hosts are playing very well at home and they should be able to book an important victory which should push them up on the table. The hosts also had more time to prepare for this match as Chapecoense had a mid-week clash in Copa do Brazil.

We shouldn’t expect many goals in this match as the hosts failed to score in the last four occasions, while the visitors have also been involved in low scoring matches. The tradition of their clashes also speaks in the favour of this tip.

Internacional vs Chapecoense: Bet Tips

  • Home win @ 1.58 odd.
