CSA vs Chapecoense for the Brazilian Serie A championship match on Sunday at Rei Pelé Stadium.
Here we have the CSA vs Chapecoense prediction for the 18th round of the Serie A Brazilian Championship. The match takes place this Sunday at the Estádio Rei Pelé, home of CSA.
The meeting brings together two teams that are in the relegation zone of the competition. So we can expect a game where both sides need a victory to try to re-establish themselves in the championship.
It will be a game of low technical quality because we can not expect much from these teams since they make a terrible Brasileirão.
In fact, the team last year achieved its first rise to the national football elite since the competition is disputed for running points. It was expected that the team would fight not to return to Serie B.
Thus, occupying the penultimate position at the beginning of the round, won only two matches in the championship. In fact, the team has a small budget and still needs time to establish itself in football’s elite.
Their last win was a surprise, as they beat Fluminense away from home by 1 × 0. However, in recent matches, the team has shown that they cannot maintain possession and have a weak defence.
Thus, the team adds 12 points in the championship with 2 wins, 6 draw and 9 losses.
During the last years of the competition, Chapecoense always had the risk of relegation during the tournament, but still managed to recover and remain in Serie A Brasileirão. However, this year will need an excellent campaign going forward so as not to be demoted.
However, the team is 4 points behind Cruzeiro, the first team outside the relegation zone, so it will not be in this round that the team will be able to breathe. They only got 3 wins in the competition, of which it was just an away win.
Thus, the team has weaknesses in all sectors of the group. In fact, it does not have good finishes with clear chances of goal and can not execute the tactical scheme of the team.
We can’t expect a good match between the teams, so we probably won’t see a lot of goals happen. Thus, the game must be locked in midfield without the creation of many attacking moves.
A draw will be of a suitable size for Chapecoense, as it is in a direct dispute with CSA not to fall. The home team will have to go for the attack, but this will not be a big problem since Chapecoense’s counterattacking power is small.
