Atletico PR will be visiting Estádio Major Antônio Couto Pereira on Sunday for the Serie A fixture with home side Coritiba.
Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Coritiba v Atletico PR are shown on this page including the latest game odds.
Coritiba won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 4-2 Serie A defeat last time out to Red Bull Bragantino.
In that game, Coritiba had 48% possession and 16 shots at goal with 5 on target. For Coritiba, goals were scored by Igor Paixão (51') and Adrián Martínez (92'). At the other end, Red Bull Bragantino had 19 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Hyoran (7', 36'), Artur (34') and Natan (75') scored for Red Bull Bragantino.
It’s not been often in recent times that Coritiba haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Coritiba have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 10 goals during that time. That trend won’t necessarily be sustained into this next game, of course.
Pre-game facts show that Coritiba:
- have not registered a win against Atletico PR in their last 3 league matches.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 matches in the league.
In the game prior to this, Atletico PR drew 1-1 in the Serie A tie with Corinthians.
In that match, Atletico PR had 44% possession and 21 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Atletico PR was David Terans (82'). At the other end, Corinthians had 11 attempts on goal with 6 on target. Róger Guedes (5') was the scorer for Corinthians.
In the course of their six most recent matches, Luiz Scolari's Atletico PR have found the net a total of 12 times thus giving them the goals scored per game average of 2.
Their previous form shows that Atletico PR:
- have not beaten Coritiba when having played them away from home in the previous 9 league games. An awful away record.
- have not been beaten in their last 3 league matches away from home.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head duels going back to 30/06/2016, there has been little between the sides with Coritiba winning 2 of those games, Atletico PR 2 and 2 being draws in normal time.

Team News: Coritiba
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the sole fitness concern for the Coritiba boss Gustavo Morínigo to be concerned with thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Neílton (Arthroscopie) is out of contention.
We are thinking that Coxa will possibly kick off with a 4-2-3-1 system for this game, handing starts to Rafael William, Natanael, G. de los, Luciano Castan, Diego Porfirio, Bernardo Lemes, Matías Galarza, Fabrício Daniel, Régis, Clayton and Neilton.
Team News: Atletico PR
Owing to an otherwise available group, there’s only a single fitness issue for the Atletico PR gaffer Luiz Scolari to be concerned about. Agustín Canobbio (Knock) misses out for this game.
We are inclined to think that Furação seem likely to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 system, going with Bento, Khellven, Pedro Henrique, Nicolás Hernández, Pedrinho, Matheus Fernandes, Erick Carvalho, Marcelo Cirino, David Terans, Tomás Cuello and Pablo.
We’re envisaging that Atletico PR will need to put in a solid display to be putting a goal past this Coritiba outfit who should do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
We’re therefore seeing a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 win for Coritiba when the full-time whistle blows.
