Palmeiras hosts Coritiba at the Pacaembu this Monday, on the 22nd round of the Brazilian Serie A…..
On this final stretch of the competition the two teams have different objectives on the league. Palmeiras is already considering this 2017 as a failure.
The team has failed in every competition they played on and now their only chance of redemption is ensuring a spot on next season’s Copa Libertadores.
Coritiba on the other hand, is fighting to stay away from the relegation zone.
At the moment, they are on a negative streak. They haven’t won in 4 matches and they are barely above the relegation zone.
The team is in 16th place, and they are the first one above the relegation zone, with 27 points gained.
Marcelo Oliveira’s team has a lot of problems, since Kleber, Alecssandro, Matheus, Werley and Léo will be absent.

Brazilian Serie A – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Palmeiras has once again trained the entire week and this time we expect a better outcome than the one they had against Atlético Mineiro.
The team had 2 players sent off and they were able to hold on and leave Minas Gerais with the draw.
They have been very questioned about their recent performances, which have been below the level expected considering the investment they made coming into this season.
For this match, they also have some absences, since Luan and William are suspended due to their sending-off. The good news is the return of Dudu who should already be available to play on the attack.
It’s obvious that Palmeiras doesn’t convince anyone at this point, but neither does Coritiba.
At such an inconsistent moment for both sides, I’m going to believe that Palmeiras’ firepower and available quality will be decisive.
