São Paulo vs Chapecoense: São Paulo hosts Chapecoense at the Pacaembu this Thursday on a Brazilian Serie A match…
Who would have thought? São Paulo, who was fighting to avoid relegation up until some rounds ago and were living a seemingly endless crisis, are now thinking about qualifying for the Copa Libertadores.
On that period, the team reacted, winning the derby against Santos and definitely joining the fight for the Libertadores’ spots after their victory over Atlético Goianiense on the last round.
With the chance of the top 6 spots (that would ensure qualification for the Copa Libertadores) turning into a top 9, São Paulo has the right to dream of playing in the Copa Libertadores in 2018.
At the moment the team occupies the 9th place with 43 points and has 4 wins on their last 5 matches.
Playing at home, São Paulo has 9 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses, having scored 26 goals and conceded 15 so far. I should remind you that this match will not be at the Morumbi but at the Pacaembu instead.

The draw against Sport at home was frustrating for Chapecoense and stopped the team from getting closer to the fight for the Copa Libertadores’ spot.
Still, the team was able to keep a safe distance from the relegation zone.
Chapecoense has 40 points conquered and sit in 14th place. Playing away from home, Chape has 5 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses, having scored 19 goals and conceded 25.
For this encounter, the manager Gilson Kleina has the absences of Jandrei and Douglas.
São Paulo vs Chapecoense – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Not as much for the last match but against Santos, São Paulo left a completely different impression.
I believe on this São Paulo’s momentum. Chape haven’t looked too promising and I believe that the home advantage will make the difference is.
Goals can also be an interesting option here.
