Coritiba take on the visitors Corinthians at “Couto Pereira” in the round eight of the Brazilian Serie A. The game will be played in Curitiba on Sunday, June 18th.
Coritiba, which almost relegated from the elite division last season, demonstrate outstanding football in this season. The side got only one loss in 10 recent clashes in all tournaments alongside with six triumphs and three draws. The undefeated streak of “Coxa-Branca” counts for five encounters and has been lasting since the 28th of May. After seven matchdays Coritiba occupy the third position in the table with 14 points taken and 9-4 goal difference. Pachequinho’s team recorded 10 points earned, six goals for and one goal against in four games at the home ground. Coritiba have not been beaten in front of their supporters since the 24th of February across 11 clashes in a row.

Corinthians have not been defeated across 20 consecutive encounters in all competitions since the 19th of March. The winning run of “Alvinegrodo Parque Sao Jorge” consists of six matches and has been lasting since 21st of May. At the moment this is Fabio Carille’s side which takes the lead in the Serie A standings with 19 points gained in seven games. Corinthians won all three clashes on the road in the elite division recording seven goals for and two goals against. The unbeaten away run of “Timao” counts for nine encounters and has been lasting since the 26th of March.
Corinthians have not been beaten by Coritiba since the 4th of September 2011 across 10 games in a row resulting in six victories of “Timao” and four draws. Both rivals come up to their head-to-head in the great competitive form. The opponents conceded goals very rarely in this season’s Serie A, thus I believe that a number of goals will not be combined by the teams on Sunday.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 scored goals.
