Coritiba x Corinthians – Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips 06/12/2023
Coritiba and Corinthians face off at the Couto Pereira stadium, in the city of Curitiba, Paraná, in a game valid for the 38th and final round of Série A of the Brazilian Championship. The clash will be played on the night of this Wednesday, December 6, 2023, starting at 9:30 pm BRT.
Considered a big underdog, the Coritiba team will have the advantage of playing at home in this round, but it is only enough to complete the table in the competition, considering that it no longer has a chance of escaping relegation to the second national division.
However, even with the field command in their favor, Coxa will have to deal with the climate of a neutral field, considering that the team received a punishment of four games without fans in the stadium after the widespread fight that took place between organized fans in Coritiba vs Cruzeiro at the Vila Capanema stadium recently.
Without winning for three consecutive rounds, the Alviverde team is trying to say goodbye to the competition in the most honorable way possible and knows that a triumph over Corinthians could be a light at the end of the tunnel for a club that will need to undergo restructuring in order to compete for Serie B next season.
Their most recent duel was a narrow 1-0 defeat to Red Bull Bragantino at the Nabi Abi Chedid stadium, failing to pose as much danger to the opposing defense.
In their 5 previous clashes they recorded 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats, beating América-MG and Cruzeiro, in addition to drawing with Botafogo and losing to Fluminense and also to Red Bull Bragantino.
At the moment, the club is in 19th and penultimate position on the Brasileirão leaderboard, with 30 points achieved so far, being 12 away from the first team outside the Z-4 and six ahead of the last placed team in the competition.
Furthermore, the team still has the second worst defense, conceding 71 goals in the 37 games played.
Owner of the worst campaign as home team in this edition of the Brasileirão, Coritiba recorded just 4 wins, 4 draws and 10 defeats in the 18 times they entered the field in this condition, recording 17 goals scored and 26 conceded.
And on the visitors’ side there is the Corinthians squad, which in turn has been alternating between good and bad performances in the competition and has already defeated Coritiba itself in the first round in a resounding manner, 3-1, at the Neo Química Arena.
Now, Timão will try to repeat its good performance on Paraná soil, but the absence of fans in the stands ends up benefiting it by reducing part of the power of its rival’s home field advantage.
However, the São Paulo team suffered a defeat at home in the last round, when they faced Internacional and lost by a score of 2-1, but they counted on luck to guarantee not only their permanence in the national elite but also their place in the next edition of the Copa Sudamericana and, therefore, no longer has any great ambitions for this final round.
There were 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats in the last 5 officially played matches of the season, beating Grêmio and Vasco, in addition to drawing with Atlético-MG and losing to Bahia and also to Internacional.
At the moment, the club from the capital of São Paulo occupies 13th place in the Brasileirão league table with 47 points achieved so far, six behind Bahia, which opens the relegation zone.
There were 5 wins, 4 draws and 9 defeats in the 18 times the Corinthians team entered the field as visitors in the competition, totaling 19 goals scored and 25 conceded.
As they have a more experienced and technically more qualified team than their opponents, it is expected that Corinthians will be able to stand out even playing at Couto Pereira, home of Coritiba, who will not be able to count on their fans in the stands, being yet another interesting argument for a bet in favor of Corinthians victory.
