Coritiba vs Sport Recife
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Couto Pereira.
Both teams have just made it into the Serie A, and as expected have been struggling to show any kind of spark in this top flight. Contrary to what’s happening now, these two squads were tearing it up in the Serie B the last year.
At present, either are placed bottom-most in the table, and realize that the opportunities to secure three points this season will be extremely rare.
This weekend will be one of those rare days, as these two teams are familiar with each other, and have come from the Serie B.
As such, we can count on them to give their 100% on the pitch this Sunday to go after the win. Coupling this desperation along with their problems in defense – expect a goal-fest at the Estádio Couto Pereira.
Coritiba vs Sport Recife: Head-to-head (h2h)

- Five of the last nine games at this stadium had three or more goals.
Coritiba vs Sport Recife: Prediction
These two teams are amongst the weakest and least experienced in the Brazilian league. They are also deservedly placed in the relegation zone (18th and dead-last spots to be exact), and have a total of two wins between the two in their combined ten fixtures.
On top of that, they will be desperate for the win – considering their position in the league table and the fact that they would not have many opportunities like this Sunday as the season progresses (where they are not massive underdogs).
In addition, they also have glaring lapses in their defense, and this high-pressure scenario will only make it worse. And to quote some stats, Glorioso have kept a single clean sheet in nine of their last ten overall fixtures, while their counterparts have two from their past ten road trips.
Taking into account these observations, expect a high-scoring thriller this Sunday.
