    Can Chapecoense get a big victory against Sao Paulo?

    Chapecoense head to Sao Paulo in desperate need of points. Chapecoense are stuck in the relegation zone with just eight points from 30.

    A win on Tuesday over Sao Paulo would send Chapecoense out of the relegation zone and could send them on their way to survival. If they want out of the bottom four, however, they must beat a Sao Paulo team that has drawn four straight matches.

    Sao Paulo have collected 15 points from a possible 30 this term. The Tricolour lead the Serie A in draws with six. Despite dropping points through drawn fixtures, Sao Paulo have lost just once this season. That loss came against Corinthians, 1-0.

    Neither team has been very good in their last six matches. Sao Paulo and Chapecoense both sit in the lower half of the form table. Sao Paulo have collected five points from 18 possible with five draws and a loss.

    Chapecoense have obtained four points from 18 possible. They are winless in their last four matches which includes three losses. Chapecoense have hemorrhaged goals in their last six games with five of those matches seeing over 2.5 goals scored.

    The Western Hurricane have conceded an average of 2.0 goals per match in their last six games. All six of their most recent fixtures saw both teams score.

    In contrast, Sao Paulo’s last six matches did not see many goals. The Tricolour scored just three times while allowing four strikes against them. Their last six matches all ended with under 2.5 goals scored. Sao Paulo averaged 0.5 goals per game during their last six matches.

    Chapecoense have recorded a 3W-2D-1L record against Sao Paulo in their last six meetings. Four of their six games saw under 2.5 goals scored and only one team find the back of the net.

    The last three matches between Sao Paulo and Chapecoense played at the Estadio do Morumbi in Sao Paulo have seen the Tricolour go undefeated. All three of those matches finished with over 1.5 goals scored.

    Chapecoense forward Everaldo is second in Serie A in goals with six. He is the only player for Chapecoense who has been able to consistently find the back of the net. Everaldo has scored 55% of Chapecoense’s goals.

    He could be good value to score yet again on Tuesday when Chapecoense meet Sao Paulo away from home.

    Sao Paulo are the draw masters of Serie A and will once again finish in a stalemate against Chapecoense. The fixture should see under 2.5 goals as Sao Paulo’s defence and lack of scoring prevents goals from being tallied.
