Corinthians form and stats

The story so far in the Serie A for Corinthians at their home stadium (Arena Corinthians) is 2 wins, 4 draws and 1 defeat. Corinthians have played two draws in a row on their own stadium.

Happy days for Corinthians in their previous game, a Serie A match away at Atletico PR (placed 18th) that ended with a 1-0 victory. Prior to that was the away defeat visiting Ceara (1-2).

Walter loved the game against Atletico PR. With a stunning nine saves the goalkeeper played a huge part in the 1-0 victory. Corinthians made it very difficult for themselves, when Bruno Méndez got a red card in the 78th minute. The match was still a draw at this point. But even with this card, Corinthians won the match 1-0! World class coaching! That was the thoughts of D. Rocha Coelho when Everaldo scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 62nd minute. Some amazing scenes last match, when Everaldo scored the winning goal five minutes into stoppage time.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Corinthians as they are travelling to their away game against Vasco da Gama in the Serie A. That match is three days after this one.

Corinthians has scored 10 league goals at home this season, in 7 matches. On the other hand, Corinthians have conceded 9 goals.
