In this post tips and previews of the 12th round of brazilian Serie A. Match clou is Atletico Mineiro-Sport Recife.
CHAPECOENSE - GREMIO
Gremio occupies the first position along with Atletico Mineiro and Recife: it has collected 5 wins in a row obtained vs Atletico Paranaense, Palmeiras, Avaì, Cruzeiro and Santos.
In the next match a very important player will be missing: the midfielder Wallace, who assures a good balance to his team and we expect Gremio will have some defensive trouble vs Chapecoense which has scored in 3 of the last 4 matches played.
CHAPECOENSE: Danilo, Apodi, Rafael Lima, Neto, Dener Assunçao, Elicarlos, Bruno Silva, Cleber Santana, Hyoran, Camilo, Bruno Rangel.
GREMIO: Marcelo Grohe, Galhardo, Geromel, Rhodolfo, Marcelo Oliveira, Edinho, Maicon, Douglas, Giuliano, Pedro Rocha, Luan.
CHAPECOENSE TO SCORE (1.40, Betfair)
FIGUEIRENSE - JOINVILLE
Joinville is the last team on league tables and its away trend is really awful: 5 losses in 6 matches.
Figueirense when playing home is a tough team and mainly has a good defensive solidity.
We expect the home win.
FIGUEIRENSE: Alex Muralha, Leandro Silva, Thiago Heleno, Marquinhos, Roberto Cereceda, Paulo Roberto, Fabinho, Ricardinho, Rafael Bastos, Everaldo, Thiago Santana.
JOINVILLE: Agenor, Mario Sergio, Dankler, Douglas Silva, Diego, Naldo, Fabrício, Anselmo, Lucas Crispim, Marion, Kempes.
HOME WIN (1.85, 10Bet)
PALMEIRAS - AVAI'
Palmeiras has collected 3 wins in a row after having defeated Sao Paulo, Chapecoense and Ponte Petra and now occupies the 7th position 5 points below the first teams.
Avaì is not on a good shape: only 3 points obtained in the last 5 matches and when playing away is rarely impressive.
PALMEIRAS: Fernando Prass, Lucas, Victor Ramos, Vitor Hugo, Egidio, Gabriel, Arouca, Zé Roberto, Dudu, Rafael Marques, Leandro Pereira.
AVAÍ: Vagner, Nino Paraiba, Jeci, Emerson, Romario, Renan, Claudinei, Tinga, Romulo, Anderson Lopes, William.
