Red Bull Bragantino have had a tough start to the new season
“The Lions have been most disappointing in the Copa Libertadores. A member of an international, respected franchise and a finalist in the Copa Sudamericana 2021, the Brazilians picked up only 5 points in their group of the most prestigious continental tournament, ending up last in the quartet there. There was also a setback in the Cup, where, after a narrow victory away to Goias in the penalty shoot-out, they were beaten on penalties. And in the championship, too, many people expected more from the Bragantinu after last year’s 6th place. Mauricio Barbieri’s side have been almost evenly matched in wins and losses so far. They managed to break their black streak recently with a 1-0 win against Flamengo. But then with Cuiabá, even after opening the scoring, were restricted to a 1-1 away draw.
Coritiba were able to start above most expectations
The Glorioso have been relegated four times in the last decade and a half. And it’s just great that they’ve managed to get back up in a year, two at the most. The last time they were in Serie B was one season ago. The 3rd place taken there was enough for the climb back to Brasileirao. But everyone expected the team to fight for survival again, and not necessarily successfully. Instead, Coritiba, thanks to a fairly efficient start, managed to break into the group of leaders in the championship. And with the density of the table, it was enough to play well at home, showing 100% statistics there for a long time. But with Sao Paulo it was only a 1-1 draw, and Palmeiras spoiled the statistics with a 2-0 win the day before. At the same time, the division newcomer has 3 defeats and 2 draws in 5 away matches.
A total of 7 matches have been played and Coritiba have not lost a single one so far. 4 times it has even won, another three times, including in the last meeting in December 2020, recorded a draw.
Coritiba are slowly being deflated and this should be taken advantage of. Red Bull Bragantino are far from perfect, but we still recommend betting on their home win (odds – 1.77).
