Coach Gilson Kleina praised the team’s stance, giving indications it must maintain to face Atlético-MG the same base that defeated Flamengo. There is doubt, however, about the command of the attack. Wellington Paulista, who had been starting, was out of the game against Rio de Janeiro-based blacks to finish suspension due to the accumulation of yellow cards. Leandro Pereira, who got in his place, scored a goal. It can, in this way, be kept on the team.

Soccer Prediction of the Day Chapecoense vs Atlético-MG
Even playing at home, Chapecoense should not leave for Atlético-MG in search of the classification. It is not the style of the team, which adopts a reactive stance leaving the possession of ball in the control of the rival and seeking to put speed in the counterattacks.
That’s what Atlético-MG likes. Thus, alvinegro trades passes until he gets a chance to finish or receive fouls in the vicinity of the area either for the direct collection of Otero or even for crossings in order to take advantage of the efficiency of his athletes in the aerial game.
So, even if you play away from home, the Rooster should be considered the best guessing option in the showdown.
