Team News: Chapecoense
The Chapecoense boss Claudinei Oliveira has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash with a completely healthy group available for selection.
Team News: Vitoria
With a fully injury-free group available to select from, the Vitoria boss Leo Condé has zero fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game.
Our thinking is that Chapecoense will, in all likelihood, stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
Conversely, Vitoria might well find it a difficult task getting goals but do we see them scoring.
We reckon that it will be a pretty comfortable 3-1 win for Chapecoense at the end of the 90 minutes.
