Gremio vs Coritiba
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Friday, 23rd June 2017
Kick off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Arena do Gremio.
Gremio will host Coritiba in the most interesting game of the Matchday No 9 on Thursday evening at Arena do Gremio.
Whereas we could have expected to see the hosts among the top teams after eight rounds of the competition, Coritiba are certainly one of the most pleasant surprised of the first part of the season.
Importal Tricolor have been the most attractive team in Brazil at the start of the new Serie A campaign.
The team led by Renato Gaucho claimed four wins in last five matches netting the total of 14 goals along the way.
The weekend saw them ending the four-win run with a 3-3 draw against Cruzeiro at Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto.
Coritiba favour a completely opposite style. Pachequinho certainly does not have such predators in the final third which is why he put the main focus on building a rock-solid defensive line.
It has been functioning so far so good for Coxa Branca who kept back-to-back clean sheets in matches with Coritiba and Corinthians in last two rounds.
Gremio vs Coritiba: Head to head
The head to head stats is all tied at 12 wins for each of the teams. However, Gremio’s fans can certainly still remember the embarrassing 4-0 defeat Immortal Tricolors suffered in September last year.
Gremio vs Coritiba: Prediction
It will be very interesting to see how the best attack of the league will cope with the best defense in the competition.
We’ll skip the home win bets at 4/7 odds knowing that the visitor are undefeated in last six matches.
