Coritiba vs Chapecoense
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 6th August 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Major Antonio Couto Pereira.
Coritiba finally managed to end the horrendous run by beating Sao Paulo on the road in mid-week.
Can Coxa Branca build on this display to beat Chapecoense and move on towards the top half of Serie A standings this Sunday?
The hosts have had a turbulent period in the last couple of months. The owners decided to make a change on the bench due to a series of poor results after a promising kick off to the campaign, but Marcelo Oliveira appointing did not bring anything new.
This was actually the case all up until Wednesday evening and the visit to Sao Paulo where Thiago Carleto and Yilmar Filigrana bagged goals to end Coritiba’s four-defeat streak.
Chanecoense have also had ht-and-cold campaign in this term of Serie A.
The team also made the change of the bench halfway through the season, but Vinicus Eutropio’s appointment is yet to bring the results on consistency terms as Chapeco just fail to produce consecutive inspiring displays.
Coritiba vs Chapecoense: Head to head
The visitors took the lead in the head to head tie between the two teams thanks to subsequent wins in the last season, but Coritiba have previously been more successful on the home patch where they now have two wins and a loss in three encounters with Copa Sudamericana holders.
Coritiba vs Chapecoense: Prediction
The hosts should be able to back up the fine mid-week’s performance as Chapecoense’s visit is the perfect occasion for them to finally make it two wins on the trot.
Moreover, Chapeco’s defensive line has been quite easy to break down recently which is why we are going to back the hosts to bag two or more goals in Sunday as well.
