Internacional form and stats

Internacional have collected 9 points from their Serie A home games so far after 2-3-1.

The Internacional supporters got no joy from their last match, also played here at Estádio José Pinheiro Borda: A 2-3 defeat against Botafogo (placed 7th). A disaster for the home team in their last match (vs Botafogo) as a comfortable lead 2-0 was completely ruined into a loss 2-3. Heartbreak for Internacional in their last match as Botafogo's Hugo scored the winning goal deep into overtime. Midfield player Pena got a match rating of 7.74 in that game, the max score being 10. Pena hit two key passes, dribled past the opponent 1 of 1 times and had 84 successful passes (of 98 total).

In the game before, an away victory match versus Goias with a 2-1 scoreline.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Internacional as they are travelling to their away game against Colo-Colo in the Copa Sudamericana. That match is four days after this one.

Internacional have proved capable of finding the net in their games here at Estádio José Pinheiro Borda with 10 goals in 6 league matches. Internacional have conceded 8 in these home matches.

Coritiba form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Coritiba so far with only 2 points returning home. The records show 0-2-4 (win-draw-lose). It's a growing despair in Coritiba as they have recorded three consecutive losses.

Coritiba might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. Atletico PR proved too strong as Coritiba slumped to a 0-1 defeat in front of their own fans at Estádio Major Antônio Couto Pereira. Coritiba were so close to getting something from the game against Atletico PR, but ended up with egg all over their face after conceding the deciding goal eight minutes into overtime. Midfield player Anderson was the top player of the team with a match rating of 8.22/10. Anderson hit three key passes and dribled past the opponent 3 of 3 times.

It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Bragantino wasn't a success with a 2-4 loss.

The visiting Coritiba have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 7 goals from 6 games. The Coritiba manager Vázquez has some worries about the defense as 13 goals have been conceded in these travels.

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last ten meetings: five - five - zero (Internacional wins - draws - Coritiba wins). As for goals, two matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), eight had two or less.
