Match: Chapecoense vs Ceara
Competition: Brazil – Serie A
Time / Date: 03:00h / 31 May 2018
Venue: Arena Conda
This Thursday, two teams from the bottom of the table face up against each other, can anyone escape the red zone.
Chape recorded two losses as guests from the Internacional and Fluminense in May. But now they have a chance to fill the holes by taking on their ground team at the bottom of the table.
Newcomers from the Serie B Ceara are still without a win from seven games. They have only three points recorded, and this is two times less than today’s opponent. Matches far from their stadium are awful and no one can’t be proud of 3 games with just 1 draw and two losses, having scored just two goals and five conceded.

These two teams have four matches facing each other. Two of them are in 2013 in Serie B where Ceara wins as a host with 3: 1 and record 1-1 draw as a guest. In 2014 they play again but this time for Copa do Brasil here Ceara wins as a guest with 2: 1 and makes a draw as a host again 1:1.
In this four matches, the two teams scored at least one goal as Ceara are without a loss.
Both teams to score are the best choice at this match, the hosts of their Arena Conda have scored and allowed in 100% of the matches, while the visitors have done the same in 67% of their matches on travel. Looking at the history of these two teams where we see the same outcome in four out of four, we can safely bet on that.
Still, the hosts perform quite well in front of their fans as they still do not have a loss (1W, 2D) and here they meet really poor guest, I expect a victory for Chappe.
