Coritiba form and stats

The story so far in the Serie A for Coritiba, who have the fewest scored goals (7) in Serie A, at their home stadium (Estádio Major Antônio Couto Pereira) is 1 win, 0 draws and 3 defeats.

No payout for Coritiba in their previous match, an away game at Atletico PR that ended in defeat 0-1. 3-3 away at Goias before that.

This is expected to be a close game, with Coritiba perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Coritiba as a small favourite), we find four games. Coritiba has won three of these, drawn one and lost zero.

Coritiba has huge difficulties finding the net and are scoring on average only once per two home matches in the league: 1 goal from 4 games. From these home matches, Coritiba have conceded only 3 goals.

Vasco da Gama form and stats

Playing away, Vasco da Gama have won 2 games, drawn 1 and suffered 1 defeat in the Serie A this season.

Vasco play their second away game in a row, but can be confident going into this one after the 3-2 victory visiting Botafogo (placed 17th). A loss against Atlético GO was the result prior to that, in a home game.

Vasco goalie Fernando Miguel was high and low in the Botafogo game, contributing seven saves towards the victory. Ygor Catatau came off the bench to score the winning goal in the match against Botafogo last time out, making the manager R. Menezes Hubner feel like a tactical genius.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Vasco da Gama playing away and similar expectations, we found six relevant matches. Results were three Vasco da Gama wins, two draws and one defeat.

Vasco have scored more than twice on average per away game (in the league), an impressive attacking display. They have 9 goals from 4 away matches. Defensive performances away have varied in quality as Vasco have conceded 6 goals on the road. For more goal statistics, check out the Statistics tab above.
