Sao Paulo vs Chapecoense Predictions & Match Preview

Sao Paulo vs Chapecoense
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 23 July 2019
Kick-off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Estádio do Morumbi (Sao Paulo).

Both teams are going through winless runs, but are at vastly different positions in the league table. Chapecoense is in the relegation zone, and so far has recorded just two wins in the Serie A. On top of that, they are on the road and will have to deal with the wounded Sao Paulo.

The streak of draws has definitely put a damp cloth on the ambitions of Sao players. They need to get out of this loop of complacency soon or else risk an unsatisfactory season. A game against weaker opponents as this tie provides might be the perfect medicine to get their mojo back.

Sao Paulo vs Chapecoense Prediction

Despite their streak of draws, Sao Paulo cannot be considered a sinking ship. They were unbeaten in 16 of their last 20 games, and at home, had performed even better in the long run. They were unbeaten in 13 of their last 15 home ties and kept four clean sheets from their last nine appearances here.

On the other hand, their counterparts are winless in their last four games and lost three of their last four as well. They were also winless in eight of their last nine overall clashes. On the road, they lost five of their last six trips and conceded two or more goals in six of their last nine.

Finally, over the years, home teams have had the most success in h2h ties. In fact, four of the last five h2h encounters saw home wins, and the last a home team lost was in 2015.

As things stand, expect a win for Sao Paulo.
