Vitoria vs Chapecoense Preview and Predictions

Aron Wright - June 5, 2018

Vitoria vs Chapecoense
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 6 June 2018
Kick-Off at 23:30 UK / 00:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Manoel Barradas, Salvador.

Vitoria conceded as many as eight goals in back-to-back defeats to Internacional and Santos and they will be desperate to rebound from such failures on Wednesday evening when Chapecoense come to visit Estadio Manoel Barradas.

Such lack of meticulousness in Vitoria’s defensive line will be the music to the ears of Arthur Caike and Wellington Paulista who have combined the total of seven goals so far in the season for Verdao. The visitors will come into the game in much higher spirits having won four points in last two ties against Ceara and Atletico Mineiro. Chapecoense bagged five goals in these affairs as both Caike and Paulista were on target in the weekend’s 3-3 draw away at Estadio Raimundo Sampaio in Belo Horizonte.

Vitoria vs Chapecoense: Head-to-head

  • Vitoria have the chance to make it all square at three wins apiece ahead of their 8th head to head encounter with Chapoecoense.
  • Verdao won both of last term’s meetings with the same 2-1 scoreline.
  • Both teams scored in all of last three head to head matches.
  • Interestingly, four of last five H2H games saw away teams grabbing the spoils.

Vitoria vs Chapecoense: Predictions

Looking at Vitoria’s most recent results and the H2H trend, backing goals at both ends just has to be the way to go here. Such pick is paid at the 1.70 odds and is worth having with higher stakes acco4rding to everything written above.

As for the outcome, it could really go either way, but we just can’t ignore the value of the 2.62 odds offered for the visitors to bag two or more goals in the match. Vitoria’s defensive line has been way too vulnerable lately and we can hardly see them keep things tight at the back against an outfit which produced three goals in the weekend’s away draw with the likes of Atletico Mineiro.
