Coritiba vs Internacional
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 8 August 2020
Kick-off at 23:30 UK/ 00:30 CET
Venue: Estádio Couto Pereira.
The People’s Club were one of the best teams in the competition the last season, and expectedly they had qualified for the Copa Libertadores Qualifiers.
They did miss out on getting a direct ticket to the Group Stage of the continental extravaganza, and will be determined to make an even better effort this time around.
And they have got themselves a great opportunity to begin their campaign on the right note. They are pitted against Glorioso for the opening match-day, who have been promoted to this top flight just this season – and are about to begin their run with the big boys.
To pile on even more, Eduardo Barroca’s men are not only inexperienced – but they have a terrible h2h record against this opponent as well.
By all means, expect Internacional to post a win this weekend.

Coritiba vs Internacional: Prediction
Eduardo Coudet’s men have been one of the usual contenders for a top-tier finish in the Serie A for the past several years, and they are also determined to finish even higher in the table this season, after narrowly missing out on a direct-qualification ticket to the Libertadores the last campaign.
On the other hand, their opposite number are about to play their first top-flight-game in many years, and are obviously rusty as well as under pressure. Moreover, they have an abysmal h2h record over the years against this rival as well.
Likely, expect Internacional to post a win easily this weekend.
