Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 15th June 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Major Antonio Couto Pereira.
Pachequinho could not have imagined a better start to the new season with Coritiba.
Vovo Coxa are enjoying a terrific run of three wins and a draw in last four fixtures and they hold the second position after six opening rounds of Serie A.
The hosts will have a nice opportunity to continue their fine shape this Thursday when they are about to take on the league’s newcomers Bahia.
Vovo Coxa have been terrific at the back since they kept three consecutive clean sheets in wins over Vitoria, Atletico PR and Palmeiras,
This statistics has been slightly damages at the weekend when Pachequinho’s men played a 2-2 draw with Botafogo on the home court.
The league’s newcomers do not seem to have problems adjusting to the elite class football.
They currently hold the eighth position being super impressive in the defense as they allowed no more than two goals in last five fixtures in all competitions.
Jorginho’s men have, however, been much better on the home pitch where they collected each of their nine points.
