Chapecoense vs Santos Predictions: Draw
Chapecoense vs Santos Prediction:Draw 1-1
Chapecoense have Santos in Monday’s Brazilian Serie An action. An even game is anticipated.
Chape hope to have hit shape at quite recently the perfect time, arriving off the back of a 5 game match unbeaten run that has seen them pull 5 points clear of the drop zone. Gilson Kleina, the side’s fourth manager of the year, has made a decent showing with regards to since coming in and his men can afford to turn upward rather than down now with a Copa Sudamericana spot only 2 points away with 5 games left to play.
Regardless, in the event that they are to breach the continental places they’ll have to come back to winning ways soon, having now drawn three on the ricochet, the latter of which a 2-2 draw st Sao Paulo last time out, with Verdão throwing away 2 points having lead 2-0. Any reasonable person would agree performances at the Arena Conda have been far from sparkling this campaign, having posted a larger number of misfortunes than wins before the home group, yet with certainty still high in the camp, fans are confident of seeing their men win.
Chape will certainly have to be at their best to see of Santos, regardless of the relatively poor shape the guests arrive in. Peixe have been on the edges of the summit all campaign yet basically haven’t assembled enough wins to ever really challenge, and their push was all yet finished by a poor 2-1 home defeat to Vasco midweek under the watch of caretaker manager Elano.
Santos right now lie third, however with 9 points separating themselves and leaders Corinthians, any reasonable person would agree the side won’t lift the crown come season’s end and all attention should now go towards avoiding implosion and at least securing Copa Libertadores football for one year from now with a best 6 wrap up. On the road, Santos have been hard to beat more than anything, having drawn half of their 16 league excursions on going by soil however supporters will expect nothing under 3 points against a Chape side they’ve saw their team win the last 4 fixtures against.
Ultimately this looks a genuine cliffhanger. Santos, clearly, have been the better of the two this campaign, reflected in the 15 point gap between the two, yet Chape arrive with spirits high and have the advantage of playing before a passionate home group.
Backing the draw looks the way to play at more than reasonable chances. As specified, the hosts have now drawn their last 3, while Santos arrive having drawn 4 of their last 7 away games 1-1, and that’s a scoreline we fancy coming up by and by here.
