Team News: Chapecoense
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Chapecoense manager Umberto Louzer to be concerned about from an otherwise complete squad. Vagner (Ruptured knee ligament) misses out. Anselmo Ramon is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Figueirense
With a fully healthy squad ready to go, Figueirense manager Márcio Coelho doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of before this clash. The suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Nonato and Éverton Santos.
We’re thinking that Chapecoense can and should get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
At the other end, Figueirense may well find it hard to break down their defence but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be converting at least once.
Therefore, we are anticipating a fairly comfortable 3-1 win for Chapecoense after 90 minutes.
