The Couto Pereira stadium will be the stage for the great duel between Coritiba and Atlético Mineiro. The host team will try to recover the trust of the supporters that were lost in the last game against Santos, in which they ended up losing with a 1-2 score.
Atlético Mineiro also has a few problems that they need to fix, to come back to the path of victories. They are not performing as well as they were a few weeks ago, and they are missing great chances to get closer to the top teams in the league.
This Brasileirão match will be super relevant for these clubs as they are coming from bad results and handling tons of pressure from their supporters.

Why Bet on Coritiba?
The last game played by Coritiba in the league was last Monday against Santos. The 1-2 result was an awful result for the home team, as they are only one point ahead of the relegation zone and Fortaleza won the last game and has 21 points now.
Coritiba also lost the talented winger Igor Paixão – sold to Feyenoord for 9 million euros -, which means they don’t have the best player on the team anymore. Paixão was one of the reasons that made the opponents hold back the fullbacks to be ready for Paixão’s speed and ability.
Besides all of those bad events, Coritiba is still a team that plays much better at home and pushes the opponents back, supported by the chants of the fans. They still have Léo Gamalho and Alef Manga upfront, two strikers with a good capacity for scoring goals.
Why Bet on Atlético Mineiro?
Atlético did not win any of their six last games. A sequence like that is not usual for a team the size of them and that’s what is making all the supporters worried about the team’s recent momentum.
Striker Hulk is not scoring as many goals as he used to a few months ago; midfielder Nacho isn’t giving that beautiful assists anymore; left defender Guilherme Arana is not being the surprise, moving up the field to score and assist.
A few things have changed for the players of Atlético, but nobody can tell precisely what it is. The directors have changed the coach, and striker Keno came back from injury, but the win didn’t show up again.
Atlético is out of Copa do Brasil and Copa Libertadores, and this game against Coritiba is the chance to start fixing everything that is going wrong recently.
Final Betting Analysis: Coritiba vs. Atlético Mineiro
Without Igor Paixão, Coritiba continues to test some options to replace the young winger. On the other side, Atlético will come thirsty for a win, as they have the best players out of injuries and a coach that didn’t win any game at this point.
Our pick for this game is a 2-1 win for Atlético Mineiro.
