Coritiba comes from a narrow 0-1 loss in the visit to Internacional last Thursday, but the hosts played well in that game (especially in the second half) and deserved to win at least one point (Juan missed a penalty in the 77th minute).
In the matter of fact, the hosts have important match against Atletico Nacional next Wednesday (quarter-final in Copa Sudamericana), but the league is also a priority for Coritiba, especially in a moment when this team has just three-point advantage over the teams in the relegation zone.
Like most of the teams in this league, the hosts rely mostly on their games at Estadio Couto Pereira, where they’ve recorded four wins and one draw in five games since the beginning of August (3-1 vs. Ponte Preta, 2-1 vs. Santos, 4-0 vs. Gremio, 1-1 vs. Corinthians and 3-0 vs. America Mineiro).
Alan Santos (m / 14+1), Neto Berola (f / 7+1) and top scorer Kleber (f / 19+7) are out due to injuries, but Kleber is unavailable since August.
Figueirense continues to struggle, as this team managed to win just three points from the last four rounds (1-0-3 3/5) and suffered a painful defeat at home against Botafogo last Sunday (0-1).
The guests have obvious problems away from home, having recorded just one win in fourteen away games this season (1-3-10 9/24).In addition to that, Figueirense failed to win a single point from the last four visits to Fluminense (2-3), Sao Paulo (1-3), Flamengo (0-2) and Internacional (0-1).
Bady (m / 18+2), Elicarlos (m / 18+0), Michael Ortega (m / 6+0) and Jackson Caucaia (m / 13+0) will miss this match due to injuries.
Coritiba looks in better shape than Figueirense and I think that the home team will manage to win three points from this match.
