Brazil Serie A
(18 Oct 2017)
Coritiba – Cruzeiro
Coritiba meets Cruzeiro in a match of the 29th round of the Serie A.
Coritiba: After 7 wins, 7 draws and 14 losses, the home team is holding the 19th position. They have won 28 points so far and that is not enough to be out of the relegation zone. Furthermore, Coritiba is still going through a very bad moment in the league. Their team have failed to win any of their last 9 matches. Seems like things are not looking good in terms of being able to secure their status in the Serie A before the campaign ends.
Cruzeiro: The away team is in the 5th position of the league. They managed to win 47 points after 13 wins, 8 draws and 7 losses. Most noteworthy, they have already promoted to a group stage of the Copa Libertadores next season thanks to their Copa do Brasil title. Also, team’s spirit is great as they are undefeated in their last 8 matches. When playing away from home, the team shows a very good defensive performance.
Conclusion: There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 8 of Coritiba’s last 10 matches. Although Cruzeiro should be able to dominate in front, still Coritiba must focus on defence and get out the relegation zone. Therefore, this game should be hard fought with the low-scoring result.
