Athletico Paranaense snatched all three points from Coritiba in a 1-0 victory on Sunday, at Estadio Couto Pereira. Coritiba were hoping to get something from this game after losing their last match 4-2 to Red Bull Bragantino. Paranaense, on the other hand, are struggling for form following a draw in their last match. Following today’s result, Coritiba are in 14th place in the table and have 15 points while Paranaense sit in 3rd with 21 points after 13 matches.

After a goalless first half, Paranaense continued to pile on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, when Khellven gave Paranaense the lead just before the final whistle, sealing a 1-0 victory for the home side.

Substitutions for Coritiba included Leo Gamalho, Guilherme Biro and Warley for Thonny Anderson, Adrian Martinez and Alef Manga, repectively. Paranaense brought on Leo Cittadini, Vitor Ferreira, Matheus Babi and Vitor Bueno for Marcelo Cirino, Pablo Felipe, David Terans and Pablo Siles.

The referee booked Diego Porfirio da Silva, Neilton, Adrian Martinez and Rafael William Dias Pinheiro from Coritiba and Diego Porfirio da Silva (2 yellow cards) went off with a red card, while Paranaense’s Pablo Felipe, Pablo Siles, Leo Cittadini, Pedro Henrique, Matheus Babi and Nicolas Hernandez also received a yellow.

Coritiba will next play Internacional away, with Paranaense facing Red Bull Bragantino at home.
