Chapecoense vs Corinthians Betting Tip and Prediction

Chapecoense vs Corinthians – Copa do Brasil : After suffering a 1-0 defeat on the first match at the Arena Corinthians
Chapecoense hosts Corinthians needing to win by a 2-goals differential to advance onto the semi-finals of the Copa do Brasil. In case they just win, the decision will go to penalties.
Chape is coming off a victory on their last league match precisely against Corinthians, although they were facing the reserve squad,
but Chape was also utilizing a mixed squad and still got the victory, despite being a man down since the first half, the team managed to turn the scoreline around on the last minutes and gained a huge morale for this decisive match.
Guto Ferreira will make his 2nd match ahead of the team, having practically all of his players available. Chapecoense is coming off 10 unbeaten matches at the Arena Condá.
Corinthians suffered a surprising comeback on their last match, precisely against Chape, where their reserves didn’t have balance
and maturity to maintain the advantage on the scoreline and on the number of players, allowing Chapecoense to mount an incredible comeback. Osmar Loss has Jadson as doubtful, since the player is still recovering from muscular pain,
but I believe that won’t be a concern and that he will play. Besides that,
the team should be the same that has been playing on the main encounters.
Chapecoense vs Corinthians – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I don’t expect anything less than a Chapecoense playing on the attack, looking for the goal that would at least take the match to penalties.
The team is a tough opponent to beat at home, where they take the initiative throughout the 90 minutes of the match and really look to go on the attack with the help and support of their fans that turn their stadium into a cauldron.
I see a lot, but really a lot of difficulties for the visiting side to hold off this motivated Chapecoense.
The team can’t just stay on defence like they usually do on their matches away from home, I believe that would be suicidal, and that they would be taking a lot of risks.
This is a complicated match to find a favourite, but I see this being a very exciting match, where we have everything to bet on the goals’ market, since this is a decisive match,
where the teams will play and risk it all, leaving a lot of spaces open, which is a completely different scenario from the first match where we’ve seen more cautious teams.
That way, I see value in goals for this match, and a “Over 2 Goals” ends up being a good option for me here.
