Chapecoense vs Palmeiras Match Preview
Palmeiras travel to Chapeco for their Matchday 7 clash as Serie A pace-setters with a game in hand to the chasers and on the back of a six-match winning streak across competitions, where they bagged nine points as well as Copa Libertadores win over San Lorenzo (1-0) and Copa do Brasil wins over Sampaio Correa (0-1 and 2-0) over the course of two legs.
Sao Paulo’s Verdao have been rock-solid at the back and primarily based their success on such performances lately, which should have them very motivated for a similar display at Arena Conda. They’ve struggled on many occasions against the rivals, though, and Scolari will have to warn against complacency.
Chapecoense have just ended their four-match winless streak with a 1-2 win at Cruzeiro where Diego Torres found the late winner, now sitting three points clear of the league’s top 6. They’ve been scoring and conceding goals on the regular and struggled to capitalize beforehand, which still promises thrills now.
Ney Franco’s men have thus been unable to really earn pick-me-ups at this ground, seeing a 1-1 draw against Athletico PR and a 1-3 loss to Fortaleza in their last two outings – which makes it hard to make a case for them to shut down the in-form visitors now.
We will thus stick with Palmeiras to secure all three points as we go for an Away win at 4/7 with William Hill, which feels like a safe approach to the fixture as the visitors boast great team spirits lately.
We should be in for goals, though, and we now see Chapecoense can dent Palmeiras’ perfect defensive tally of recent. We’ll thus also go for a Yes on Both teams to score, which comes at 11/8 with bet365 and could prove overpriced at this point.
