Team News: Internacional
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the sole fitness concern for the Internacional manager Diego Aguirre to be concerned about from a near full-strength group of players. Rodrigo Moledo (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is sidelined.
Team News: Chapecoense
Chapecoense boss Luís Pintado has to currently contend with reduced team options. Vagner (Ruptured knee ligament) and Tiepo (Knee Injury) won’t be making appearances.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Internacional will more than likely get the win and a possible clean sheet against Chapecoense, who could well struggle to score themselves.
We can therefore see a comfortable 2-0 margin for Internacional at the conclusion of the game.
