Competition: Brazil Serie B
Market: Coritiba win
Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport
Looking to widen their buffer at the top of the Serie B table this weekend, Coritiba will welcome Vila Nova to the Estádio Couto Pereira late on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, managing to lay down what was another marker last weekend, Coritiba appear to be a side cruising their way to a Serie A return. Holding onto a three-point buffer at the top of the table and with the mood in their camp likely to be at a red-hot high, Head Coach Gustavo Morinigo last saw his side land a thumping 4-0 win against Brusque on home soil. With it appearing that their 1-0 defeat against Botafogo last month was just a minor blip, Glorioso have mustered nine points from their last four second-tier contests. With that run highlighted by a 2-1 victory against Avai on August 20th, Coritiba have also continued to shine with their performances in the final third. More impressive, last seen at the Estádio Couto Pereira landing that thumping 4-0 win against Brusque, it’s worth highlighting that Friday’s hosts have lost just a single home fixture all season.
As for the visitors, managing to muster seven points from their last three Serie B matchups, Vila Nova have found a welcomed boost at a crucial time. Finding a way out of the drop zone, Higo Magalhães’s side simply have their sights set on maintaining their second-tier status this season. However, knowing that they face a stern test on their travels this weekend, Tigrão have gained a reputation for their rather glaring issues on the road. Including an action-packed 3-2 defeat away at Botafogo last month, Vila Nova have collected just a single point from their last four contests away from the Estádio Onésio Brasileiro Alvarenga. Suffering a 2-0 loss when Friday’s opponents last faced off back in June, we’re backing a similar home victory here at attractive odds.
Bet: Coritiba 10/11 to beat Vila Nova in Friday’s Brazil Serie B matchup @ 888sport
