Coritiba vs Vasco da Gama
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 2nd July 2017
Kick-off at 23:00 UK / 00:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Couto Pereira, Curitiba.
After the memorable start in the opening rounds of Brasileiro, Coritiba fell all the way to the middle of the table after five games of drought. Vasco remain strong on the home turf with severe struggles on the road.
After the latest 2-0 defeat by Cruzeiro, Coritiba have now failed to score in the last four games. They are certainly disappointed after dropping fast from the upper third of the table, and it’s visible they are craving motivation.
Despite their horrible run, Coritiba are without a home defeat in Serie A since November 2011. They kept a clean sheet in 6 out of last 8 games in Serie A.
Vasco da Gama
The visitors are the worst away team in Brasileiro. After 4 Serie A visits, they scored only two goals while conceding eleven; they were beaten in all four games. Nevertheless, they are finishing the job on the home turf, so they occupy the sixth place that leads into Copa Libertadores qualification stages.
Vasco de Gama allowed at least two goals in the last four games on the road.
Luís Fabiano’s suspension could be a big blow for Vasco. Ex-Sevilla striker accumulated three yellow cards already so he has to sit this one out.
Coritiba vs Vasco da Gama: Head-to-head
The two sides haven’t been colliding since 2015 when they shared the prey in the goalless draw. In the last three games in Curitiba, Vasco snatched two victories and a draw.
Coritiba vs Vasco da Gama: Prediction
Vasco’s away woes will probably continue after Curitiba visits. Since Vasco just started to score on the road, but without Luis Fabiano they will lose a lot of firepower up front.
