Coritiba boss Eduardo Barroca will be thankful to have no fitness concerns at all coming into this clash owing to a completely healthy squad to pick from.

Team News: Vasco da Gama
Due to a completely healthy squad to pick from, Vasco da Gama boss Ramon Menezes doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all coming into this clash.
We believe Vascão will likely begin the game with a 4-3-3 lineup, settling for Fernando Miguel, Yago Pikachu, Marcelo Alves, Leandro Castán, Henrique, Martin Nicolas Benitez, Marcos Júnior, Fellipe Bastos, Kaio Magno, Germán Cano and Ribamar.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Vasco da Gama and Coritiba could both find goals hard to come by here.
It’s looking like it could well end up as a draw. Our tip is therefore for a 0-0 scoreline when the referee blows the final whistle.
