Coritiba vs Atlético-GO for the Brazilian Serie B championship match on Sunday at Couto Pereira Stadium.
The prediction for Coritiba vs Atlético-GO has two teams that are in the first places of the Brazilian Serie B Championship. The match takes place this Sunday at Estádio Couto Pereira for the 21st round of the competition.
Thus, both teams will have to maintain consistency to move up to Serie A. After an excellent first round, it will be necessary to win, especially the direct confrontations to open distance from immediate opponents.
Thus, we have a slight favouritism of Coritiba for playing at home. However, in recent matches the teams have not been presenting the same performance of the beginning of the championship, distancing themselves from Bragantino, in the first place.
Coritiba is in the second position of the Brazilian Championship Series B with 34 points. When playing at home, the team won 7 matches, tied 2 and lost only one. Thus, the numbers are compatible with those of a group wishing to return to Serie A.
Striker Rodrigão is the top scorer of the competition with 11 goals but has not scored in two games. In this sense, Coritiba hopes that the player can return to swing the nets. Since the team has not won in the last 3 matches.
The sides of the team need more attention, as the team concentrates too much play in midfield, making it easier to score for the opponent.
However, playing at home, the team’s performance shows that Coritiba knows how to enjoy the encouragement of the fans.
It has become a tradition for Atletico-GO access to the elite of Brazilian football followed by a fall the following year. Therefore, the team is always a candidate to be in the first place of the competition.
This year, they won more than they lost playing away from home, there were 3 wins and only two losses, besides, they were 4 draws, totalling 13 points in 27 matches. That is, this means a nearly 50% improvement.
Thus, the team occupies the 3rd position in the championship with 34 points, being 9 wins, 7 draws and 4 losses.
For the game, the team will play more advanced on the wings, thus seeking to impose speed on the counterattacks. It also means a possible team retreat in midfield.
Both teams are tied with the same points in the table, with the difference in the balance of only 2 goals. That is a balance that can only be influenced by external factors such as playing at home. And that seems to be the difference between the teams
A fast goal-scoring game is expected for both teams. However, contrary to what one might think, in the 20 games that played only 5 times the score totalled more than 3 goals.
Despite the quality and possible chances of scoring, this trend is likely to continue, given the balance of the game and caution of the teams.
