It was very surprising that Coritiba lost at home on 27th May against Botafogo 2-3 as this was the first after 10 month undefeated record. They started by Lincoln’s very early goal and leaded the match but unnecessary mistakes in their defense they were behind 1-2 at the minute of 26 already. Mendes scored the equalizing goal in 50th minute but the attacks Coritiba wasted by especially Lincoln in second half and another mistake of defense they lost 2-3 at home. It was a lesson to learn that Coritiba may loose against teams who have quality talent offense line. Because Coritiba make important mistakes in defense. They are facing with Portuguesa who have the style of defending at away matches. Thus Coritiba will not have to worry of their weak defense as such teams like Portuguesa who consider defense in priority are an advantage for them. They should somehow hit the nets as playing at home is another big advantage here.
Portuguesa is one of defensive team in the league. They lost on 27th May against Vasco da Gama 0-1. The goal was created of Portuguesa’s unexpected mistake. That was the only wrong thing they did in the match and they did not deserve the defeat. Portuguesa will improve as they are giving good signals for the future. They only need time to establish what they want to play.
Coritiba will not repeat the same mistake.
