Team News: Coritiba
The Coritiba boss Thiago Kosloski will be happy not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game thanks to a fully healthy group available to choose from.
Team News: Bahia
Bahia boss Renato Paiva has not got a full squad to pick from. Kayky (Ruptured knee ligament) and Caio Roque (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are those who can’t be considered.
In this match, Bahia should get enough chances to get a goal against this Coritiba team, but that may not prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 2-1 winning score for Coritiba at the end of this one. It really should be an interesting one.
