The team comes to this match after a home win against Flamengo by (3-2). The home team comes to this return match after a goalless draw as a visitor, so in case of victory will confirm the qualification to the next phase. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 8 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 11 goals scored and 12 conceded; against 11 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 24 goals scored and 11 conceded. There is 1 period that stands out in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (76-90 ). In the last 10 home matches for all competitions, La Chapecoense won 7, tied 2 and lost 1. The team allowed goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for the opponent, so his defense needs to improve, but his attack has scored regularly, since he scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches.
Atletico MG were solid on the road so far. After four games played on the road, they registered only one defeat in addition to two draws and the aforementioned victory.
In their latest match, they suffered the most difficult defeat of the season as Flamengo RJ outclassed them by scoring five. In the last five games, they suffered 4 defeats while winning only one game. Alarms are now ringing in Chapeco. The hosts even have the negative goal difference on the home turf after conceding 9 while scoring 8 goals. The hosts are in awful form.
Chape is without a win against Atletico MG since 2015. In current seasons meeting, the two sides settled for a 2-2 stalemate. In the previous games between the two sides, a visiting side failed to win each time.
But a clean sheet might be out of the question though. As such, expect Fortaleza to shake off their bad form in the last few games, which was on the road, and show their mettle at home.
Atletico MGs form is in incline and they could stun another Serie A team with an unanticipated performance. Head-to-head meetings restrict Atletico MGs victory, but could they break the tradition? There is the possibility as Chapecoense are severely struggling, even in front of their own crowd.
