Venue: Arena Corinthians (Sao Paulo).
Corinthians are sitting comfortably at the top of Serie A table with an 8 point cushion over second placed Santos. But they need to pick themselves up to avoid a dramatic slump with results in past few matches not going in their way as expected. They are coming on the back of consecutive draws and managed just 1 win from the last five.
It will be also interesting to note that they lost 2 home games in the space of 3 games, which ended their 10 match unbeaten run.
Coritiba are a team in trouble as they sit inside the bottom 2 of the table. They current run of form is terrible with no wins coming in the last 7 games. This is the second time that the team is going on a similar barren run.
