Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Chapecoense v Palmeiras can be found here - plus the latest match odds.
Chapecoense, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 1-2 Serie A success vs Red Bull Bragantino.
In that match, Chapecoense had 45% possession and 22 attempts on goal with 6 on target. For Chapecoense, the goalscorers were Mike (78') and Anselmo Ramón (95'). Red Bull Bragantino had 12 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Artur (38') was the scorer for Red Bull Bragantino.
It’s been seldom in recent games where Chapecoense have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Chapecoense have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 7 goals on the way.
Taking a look at their past results, Chapecoense:
- have not emerged victorious against Palmeiras when playing them at home in the previous 2 league matches.
- have not won against Palmeiras in their last 5 league matches.
- are without a win at home for the past 9 league games. Such a poor run.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Flamengo in Serie A action, Palmeiras will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that game, Palmeiras managed 58% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. The only player to score for Palmeiras was Wesley (15'). Flamengo got 11 shots at goal with 4 on target. Michael (17', 81') and Pedro (57') scored for Flamengo.
The numbers tell their own story, and Palmeiras have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 9 goals in all. Defensively, Palmeiras could really do with shoring things up. That kind of trend might not be continued into this next game, of course.

Looking at these two teams, we feel that Chapecoense will need to apply a lot of pressure to score against this Palmeiras team who we think should end up scoring and staying ahead.
Therefore, we predict a hard-fought 0-1 winning margin for Palmeiras at full-time.
