Corinthians vs Coritiba
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 20 August 2020
Kick-off at 1:30 UK/ 2:30 CET
Venue: Arena Corinthians (Sao Paulo).
Corinthians started the season on the wrong foot and they have a loss and a draw each from their two appearances in the campaign so far.
The 0-0 draw on the road with Gremio was a better result when compared to their 3-2 loss on the road against Atletico MG in the opening league clash.
With both their opening matches away from home, returning home will shred off some weight off their shoulders as they haven’t lost at home for the past six fixtures in their overall schedule.
Coritiba is on a five-game losing streak in the schedule across all major competitions. They have scored no goal in the campaign so far, but they have restricted their losses to the same 1-0 scoreline.
They will visit on the back of a 0-1 loss at home against Flamengo in the league.
Corinthians vs Coritiba Head-to-head (h2h)
- The host has been unbeaten in their last 12 meetings.
- Two of their recent three fixtures have ended in a draw.
- Their previous encounter gave a 3-1 home win for the Timao.
- Both teams have scored in four of their recent five clashes.
- The visitor has recorded only three of the overall 18 wins.
Corinthians vs Coritiba Prediction
More than their return to the top tier as a promoted team this season, Coritiba has considerable injury issues in their camp that will be a headache for Eduardo Barroca while picking his playing eleven for the game.
The Timao has not won in the league yet but they have picked up a point in the last clash unlike the Coxa with no points after three appearances in the table. The draw no bet over Corinthians will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter, but the odds are too low and therefore we go for an outright home win priced at 1.60 odd.
Since the recent fixtures of the promoted team have seen them lose by small goal margins, the tip for under 2.5 goals will probably be the safest bet from the goals area to yield decent returns in ninety minutes.
