Corinthians Team News
Corinthians is in a hot and cold form right now. In the last 10 games, they have four wins, three defeats, and three draws, too. They suffered back-to-back defeats in the last two games against Santos in Copa do Brasil and against Ceara in Brasil Serie A.
Besides that not-so-good run in the last couple of games, Corinthians is still in a very good position on the table. They are 3rd in Serie A with 29 points and only two points behind Atletico MG, and four points behind the current leader Palmeiras. Vitor Pereira’s players still can dream about a title. The last time that Corinthians was the champion of Brazil was in 2017.
The major strength of Corinthians is their results at home. At their Neo Quimica Arena, they didn’t taste defeat yet this season in eight games and conceded only two goals. Neither team has won more points at home than Corinthians. They have six clean sheets at home and also failed to score in only one game.
One of the problems for Vitor Pereira is a large number of injured players and that is one of the reasons for their ups and downs in recent weeks. But if they want to be in the title hunt they must win games like this.
Coritiba Team News
Coritiba was promoted from Serie B last season and they are in the relegation fight this season in Serie A. After 17 rounds Coritiba is 16th on the table with 19 points, only one point above the America-MG in the relegation zone.
Coritiba is in terrible form with only five points won from the last eight games. Almost all points this season Coritiba has won at home – 17 from 19 points. When playing away from home Coritiba is a totally different team. They are the only team without a win this season and collect only two points from eight games. They conceded 18 goals, which is 2.25 per game, and failed to keep a clean sheet.
Coritiba’s defence record is one of the worst in the league with 27 goals conceded and only Juventude conceded more (28).
Corinthians is without a defeat against Coritiba in their last 14 meetings. Coritiba’s last win was in 2011. Seven from the last 14 games were finished with over 2.5 goals and nine with BTTS.

Corinthians vs. Coritiba Prediction
Corinthians is a much stronger team even with some injury issues. They need three points here to keep the step with Atletico-MG and Palmeiras and to stay in the title fight. They are very good at home and their h2h history with Coritiba is also great. We can say that Coritiba is one of the Corinthians’ favourite rivals.
We mention how much Coritiba is struggling with results away from home and that is another thing that makes Corinthians an even bigger favourite for three points.
Prediction: Corinthians to win and to score over 1.5 goals
