Cruzeiro vs Coritiba
Brasileiro Serie A
Sunday, 25th June 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto.
Coritiba were off to a strong start to the new Serie A season, but they will travel to Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto with a streak of four consecutive games without a victory.
The hosts have not been much better either since they are winless in last three outings.
Cruzeiro have been playing hot and cold throughout the course of the season.
The team led by Mano Menezes struggles a lot to find the back of the net when they play on the road (only one goal in five away games in all competitions).
The story is somewhat different when they play in front of their fans where they claimed three wins in five matches.
The visitors have also had huge troubles with the efficiency in the final third as they failed to score a single goal in last three league fixtures.
The latest of the failures for Pachequinho and his men came on Thursday evening when they lost the away outing to Gremio 2-0.
However, Coxa Branca still holds the sky-high fifth position after a promising kick off to the new campaign and it will be very interesting to see if they can bounce back this Sunday against Cruzeiro.
Cruzeiro vs Coritiba: Head to head
Raposa leads the head to head tie by three wins ahead of 28th meeting with Coritiba.
The visitors managed to claim only a single win in 12 games at Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto.
The last encounter played in mid-August last year saw a 2-2 draw.
Cruzeiro vs Coritiba: Prediction
We don’t see such high-scoring affair happening this weekend since none of the two teams can be proud of their attacking form.
Braver punters can even chase a goalless draw longshot at 8/1 as it will be very hard to make the difference between the two sides.
