Bragantino SP - Coritiba:
Great value for the Asian +0.75 in favor of Coritiba, here we have two very different teams in front of us, let's not look at the ranking, first Bragantino and second Coritiba.
Newly promoted by the Serie C, Bragantino was helped by the great sponsor Red Bull in a future stadium enlargement project in the case Bragantino reaches the promotion and much more, a lot of money has been invested to make the squadron, the Paulista team is succeeding in the big business.
On the other hand, Coritiba is not a suitable team for this category, it has a great history in Brasilerao A, they are in their second year in Serie B, they have a strong reinforced team and they offer the best football of Brasilerao B.
Coritiba wants to win the championship and has all the credentials to do so.
Undefeated from eight games, as they said they have surprised their fans with their great game, Rodrigao (Attacker 13/10) is in a state of grace, the team is experiencing a great moment of form, first away match, now they have learned to winning, given the previous round against Oeste, beaten 0-2, now with high morale the battleship Coritiba is ready to face the leaders Bragantino.
Bragantino and Coritiba direct confrontation can decide the champion of the first part of the tournament.
Bragantino leads from the seventh round and can be overtaken by Coritiba in the event of a defeat.
Leading for almost four months, after beating Sao Bento 2-0 on June 4 for the seventh round, Bragantino has 34 points and an unbeaten record of three games, two consecutive victories on Operário and Criciúma, we remember that their opponents have done even better, unbeaten in eight rounds.
But the team led by Antonio Carlos Zago will face a very difficult opponent, who has won the last three games and has not lost in eight rounds.
The positive evolution of Coritiba saw him climb up the rankings and leave the center of the table and rise to the vice-leadership, with 32 points.
Coach Antonio Carlos Zago will not have his best team, he has two certain changes with respect to the team that beat Criciúma.
Suspended for the third yellow card, right-back Aderlan (Defender 12/0) gives way to Lucas Ramon.
He returns from the injury to Edmar and resumes his position on the left.
Rafael Carioca returns to the bench.
There is also possibility that Bragantino coach will make another change.,
Ytalo ( Foward 17/8), has left the game against Criciuma is injured, is in strong doubt, can be saved to avoid the risk that he gets hurt.
Bruno Tubarão and Morato could be his substitutes.
Coritiba went to Sao Paolo looking to go first alone and overtake Bragantino, he will do it with his best men, except for the only absent, the suspended Diogo Mateus (Defender 12/0), but the biggest news is that Felipe Mattioni, (Midfielder), who does not play a game from the 13th round, is fine and would like to play this match.
Mattioni, a very important comeback, says in a press conference that it would be special for him to play tonight, because he has often not played at his best.
The leaders must be afraid because they face the best team in the tournament unbeaten for eight rounds, Coritiba never stopped and now he is determined to steal his leadership, he will do it with his best players, certainly he will not stop in the most important exam of the season.
In a challenge to the last blood I believe that Coritiba can come out with a good result.
