Vitoria vs Chapecoense
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Saturday, 22nd July 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Manoel Barradas.
Vitoria continued their dismal run in mid-week when they dropped home points to Gremio (1-3).
Can Leao da Barra finally keep things tight at the back this Saturday when they host Chapecoense at Estadio Manoel Barradas?
Alexandre Gallo does not seem to have the solution for his team’s disastrous defensive form.
Imortal Tricolor batched three goals on Wednesday at Manoel Barradas making it 11 conceded goals in last three Serie A outings for Vitoria.
Chapecoense have not been much better either, but they at least managed to interrupt the negative streak last weekend by beating Sao Paulo 2-0 in front of their fans.
It was the first win for Vinicius Eutropio whose appointment on the bench did bring at least some sort of a positive shock as the team allowed only a single goal in last two league fixtures.
Mid-week’s action has seen them losing 1-0 to Santos on the road.
Vitoria vs Chapecoense: Head to head
Leao da Barra will be hoping to repeat the performance from their previous meeting with Chapecoense when Vitoria clinched a 1-4 victory in October 2016 at Arena Conda (Ze Love, who is no longer with the team, bagged a brace).
Chapecoense have previous won the first match also on the rod (1-2 in June last year at Estadio Manoel Barradas).
Vitoria vs Chapecoense: Prediction
The value just has to be with Chapecoense who are 13/20 to leave Salvador undefeated.
Vitoria have been way too easy to break down lately and we would not be surprised to see the visitors netting two or more goals on Saturday.
Vitoria vs Chapecoense: Bet tips
The first bet is Chapecoense or Draw Double Chance at the odds of 13/20.
