Coritiba Football Club - Has Lost Four of the Last Five Matches Played (LDLLL)
Going in the matchup, Coritiba Football Club is coming off a defeat against Bahia (3-1) and a draw previously against Sao Paulo (1-1). Against Bahia, Coritiba were taken to the cleaners and couldn’t find the momentum back in the match. Coach Antonio Zago will be looking forward to making couple of changes to the lineup, however, Manga is likely to stay in charge of the attack. In the last two home matches, Coritiba has conceded 4 and scored just 1 goal. Hence, it’s quite evident that the club is failing to even maximize the home advantage. About the overall scoring, Coritiba has scored just two goals in the last five matches played, averaging 0.40 goals per game. Hence, Coritiba is likely to keep struggling against formidable teams in the competition.
Expected Opening Lineup for Coritiba
Gabriel, Natanael, Bruno Viana, Henrique, Victor Luis, Jamerson, Willian Farias, Bruno Gomes, Kaio, Alef Manga and Rodrigo Pinho.

Going in the matchup, Vasco da Gama is coming off a challenging draw against Fluminense (1-1), in which Pedro Raul set the high tone by scoring a goal in the 2nd minute of play with the assist made by Alex Teixeira. Vasco da Gama will be very positive considering the attack and defense with the presence of Leo, Bambu, and Santos in the lineup. Though Vasco da Gama has secured just a win in the last five matches played, it has better record then Coritiba. In the last two away matches, Vasco has secured a win and draw, scoring three and conceding just two goals. Talking about the overall goal scoring, Vasco da Gama has scored 6 and conceded 8 goals in the last five matches played.
