Chapecoense will welcome Criciúma to Arena Condá for a matchday 12 fixture in Brazil Serie B. The last meeting on 14th March 2021 ended in a Chapecoense 1-0 win. Both sides have met ten times in the most recent seasons. Chapecoense has won 6 matches, and Criciúma triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 1.70 goals, while both teams score 30% of the time.
Chapecoense’s latest fixture against CSA ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were very dangerous in front positions, so one point was the least they deserved. Chapecoense was more dominant in the second half and scored in injury time.
Criciúma’s recent game against Sampaio Corrêa ended in a home 3-1 win. Although Tigre didn’t match their opponent’s intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Criciúma had good chances in both halves and scored in the 5th, 7th and 52nd minute.
So far, Chape plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.67 points per away game on average compared to 0.50 points at home. Although Chapecoense is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 25% home clean sheets.
Criciúma has picked up 7 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Criciúma wins 0.40 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Criciúma kept a clean sheet in just 20% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Chapecoense or Draw.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 1.43 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 10% of Chapecoense’s home and Criciúma’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 33% of Chapecoense’s home and Criciúma’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
