There haven't been much time to rest for the hosts, as they played a Serie A match only three days ago. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at Palmeiras.

Everyone involved with the away team has to get their travel gear ready for this match as there's a whopping 1200 kilometers to cover before arriving at the match.

Atlético are staying put; they can neither be promoted or relegated this season and are fighting only for positions. For Coritiba it's their last days at this level as relegation is a fact.
