Coritiba vs Corinthians
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: 18th June 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Major Antonio Couto Pereira.
Corinthians’ impressive six-win streak will face a serious challenge this Sunday when Timao will be travelling to Estadio Major Antonio Couto Pereira to tackle the third-placed Coritiba in the eighth round of the competition.
The hosts have ended their streak of three straight victories, but Pachequinho can be happy with a 2-2 draw with Botafogo on the road.
Coxa Branca had the lead on two occasions in Wednesday’s clash through penalties from Kleber and Henrique Almeida, but Botafogo managed to fight her way to a 2-2 draw at the end.
Coritiba have been impeccable so far on the home ground where they still hold on to a perfect score of three wins in three matches.
Fabio Carille could have hardly imagined a better start top the new season in the top flight of the Brazilian football.
Corinthians played phenomenal football, while their main rivals struggle a lot to find their best form.
Corinthians escaped to a four-point gap at the top of the standings thanks to a narrow 1-0 win in the derby with Cruzeiro on Wednesday.
Coritiba vs Corinthians: Head to head
Timao have completely dominated this match-up winning 14 out of 25 meetings with Coritiba.
The last victory for the host came back in September 2011 as Corinthians are undefeated in ten previous encounters with Coxa Branca.
It is important to mention that each of the last five H2H clashes between the two sides saw both teams on the scoreline.
Coritiba vs Corinthians: Prediction
It is very hard to predict a winner here because both teams have been enjoying a superb form in the recent period.
The best shout would be backing goals since the hosts also showed plenty of holes at the back against a top quality team like Botafogo in mid-week, while the visitors have been playing the most attractive football in Brazil since the start of the season.
