Chapecoense Prediction – Can Chapecoense break out of poor run?

Bottom placed Chapecoense will be desperate to pull themselves off the bottom of Serie A with a win in this crucial relegation clash against Cruzeiro but the hosts will have to put an end to a poor sequence of 9 league matches without a win if they’re to do so.

Having lost 7 of these last 9 matches overall, the odds look to be firmly against Chapecoense here while they look to avoid a fifth defeat on the trot on home turf at their Arena Condá following losses to Santos, Vasco da Gama, Corinthians and Flamengo.

An overall home record of 2-3-7 9/14 doesn’t look too promising either with their two successes to date being against Internacional and Avai, but they do have reasonable hope of getting something from this important encounter as they’ve won 2 of the last 3 meetings against Cruzeiro.

A 2-1 win away from home in the last meeting followed a previous 2-0 home win for Sunday’s hosts, so they’ll be hoping they can repeat this result here on Sunday evening.

Cruzeiro Prediction – Can Cruzeiro claim important victory?

The visitors have also experienced something of a lean period in the Brazilian top flight as Cruzeiro have now gone 7 league matches without a win, a run of results which include 4 defeats and 3 draws.

Defeats to Gremio, Palmeiras, Flamengo and Goias have prevented Cruzeiro from lifting themselves out of the bottom four and the relegation zone, and although they’ve picked up points in draws with Ceara 0-0, Internacional 1-1 and Fluminense 0-0, they still remain in trouble down near the bottom of Serie A.

Within this recent poor 7-match sequence, Cruzeiro have failed to score in 4 of these 7 matches, so the visitors are by no means guaranteed of getting anything out of this encounter, especially as the visitors have failed to win any of their last 15 away matches in Serie A.

The bigger picture shows that Cruzeiro have managed just 1 away win out of their last 26 matches on their travels in the Brazilian top flight, so this will also give Chapecoense plenty of encouragement ahead of this clash.


Key-Facts – Chapecoense v Cruzeiro

  • Chapecoense have lost 7 of their last 9 matches overall in Serie A
  • Cruzeiro have won just 1 of their last 26 away matches in Serie A
  • Chapecoense have won 2 of the last 3 meetings against Cruzeiro


Betting Tips Verdict

Chapecoense have a decent chance of picking up something from this encounter considering Cruzeiro’s woeful away record.
