Eduardo Barroca's Avaí have hit the target a sum total of 6 times in their last 6 outings. Conversely, the number of goals that they have conceded in those games is 8.
Looking at their past form shows that Avaí:
- have not registered a win against Coritiba in their previous 5 league games.

Coritiba go into this match after a 3-2 Serie A win in the defeat of Fluminense in their most recent game.
In that match, Coritiba managed 55% possession and 20 attempts on goal with 8 on target. For Coritiba, goals were scored by Léo Gamalho (53', 95') and Andrey (61'). For their opponents, Fluminense got 7 shots at goal with 4 on target. Ganso (19', 36') scored for Fluminense.

Coming into this fixture, Coritiba are without an away win for the past 9 league matches. Who knows how long it might last, too.

Team News: Avaí
There is just the lone fitness concern for the Avaí gaffer Eduardo Barroca to be concerned with from a near full-strength group of players. Jean Pyerre (Testicular Cancer) is sidelined.
In our view, Leão da Ilha may well use the 4-3-3 system this time featuring Douglas Friedrich, Kevin, Bressan, Arthur Chaves, Bruno Cortez, Raniele, Eduardo Biasi, Bruno Silva, Jonathan Copete, Guilherme Bissoli and Marcinho.
Team News: Coritiba
Thanks to a largely available group, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Coritiba boss Gustavo Morínigo to be concerned with. Neílton (Arthroscopie) won’t be playing here.
We reckon that Coxa appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation, giving starts to Alex Muralha, Matheus Alexandre, Henrique, Luciano Castan, Guilherme Biro, Willian Farias, Andrey, Alef Manga, Régis, Igor Paixão and Clayton.
Our thinking is that Coritiba and Avaí may well find themselves both scoring in what promises to be a very even battle here.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. We’re therefore tipping a very even match with a score draw when the full-time whistle blows.
