Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Vitoria v Chapecoense - plus the latest betting odds.
Vitoria will play in this match coming off the back of a 2-2 Serie B stalemate against Avaí.
It has been seldom in recent times that Vitoria have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Leão da Barra have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 12 goals along the way.
Taking a look at their past results, Vitoria:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Chapecoense in their last 3 matches.
- are undefeated in their last 2 home league matches.
Chapecoense come into this match following on from a 2-1 Serie B win in the defeat of Figueirense in their last match.
During their 6 most recent matches, Umberto Louzer's Chapecoense have seen their goal attempts be successful a total of 6 times therefore earning them the goals per game average of 1.
Coming into this fixture, Chapecoense haven’t won away from home in the past 2 matches in the league.
Head to head
Inspecting their most recent head-to-head clashes stretching back to 01/10/2016 tells us that Vitoria have won 3 of them and Chapecoense 2, with the number of drawn matches standing at 1.
An aggregate of 15 goals were yielded between them in this period, with 9 of them for Leão da Barra and 6 belonging to Verdão. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.5.
Team News: Vitoria
Vitoria manager Eugênio Geninho will be thankful to have no fitness concerns at all ahead of this game owing to a fully injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Chapecoense
Due to a mostly available group, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Chapecoense manager Umberto Louzer to be concerned with. Vagner (Ruptured knee ligament) won’t be playing here.
We believe that Chapecoense will have a tough ask to find the net against this Vitoria side who will likely score at least once to put them ahead.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a good battle with a 1-0 victory for Vitoria at the end of the 90.
It should be a good one.
