In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Guarani, by (0-2). In the last match, they lost in an away match against San Bento, by (5-2).

In their home league matches the most frequent result at half-time was the 0-0 (6 out of 17 matches). The team has conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, so it has not presented great defensive solidity, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 13 of the last 17 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals.

The Coritiba is a club that has two titles of Serie B of the Brazilian Championship, titles won in 2007 and 2010, in addition to having a title of the Serie A of the Brazilian Championship and two finals of the Brazilian Cup. In the current season, the team has been doing a quite irregular campaign in the B Series of the Brazilian Championship, winning 46 of the points they played so far, thus being in the middle of the table, far from the first classified and the area of descent and without further possibilities of being among the first classified. In the last seven games that Coritiba played in their stadium for the Serie B of the Brazilian Championship, five of them scored more than 1.5 goals. We believe that in this match the Coritiba will play a pretty offensive game.
After 17 wins, 6 draws and 12 losses, the away team is currently in the 3 rd position, with 57 points won. In the last match, they have won at home against Sampaio Corrêa by (1-0), after in the previous match they have tied tied in an away match against Criciuma, by (2-2).

In the current season, the team continues to make a good campaign within the B Series of the Brazilian Championship, conquering 57 of the points he played so far, being thus among the first classified of the competition, seven points ahead of the third. In the last eight games that the Goiás played as a visitor, all for the Serie B of the Brazilian Championship, in seven of them they were scored more than 1.5 goals and in five of them the team scored goals. We believe that in this match the Goiás will again score goals and make another game quite open.
