In the last five games that the Gremio played in their stadium, for several competitions, in all they were scored more than 1.5 goals. We believe that in this confrontation the Guild will make a more offensive game and with several goals, considering that it has an effective attack, but suffers goals regularly.

In the current season, the team has been doing a very irregular campaign in the national championship and that is why it continues to fight against the relegation, being currently the first team in the relegation zone, one point behind the 16th-ranked Ceará. In the last eight games that the Chapecoense played as a visitor, all for the national championship, in six of them they scored more than 1.5 goals. We believe that in this confrontation, the Chapecoense, which needs a victory, will make a very offensive game with several goals.
