Corinthians form and stats

Overall Serie A stats at home this season for Corinthians are 5-5-3 (wins-draw-losses). Hopes of three in a row are alive for Corinthians after consecutive victories at their own ground.

A good away victory last time out for Corinthians, who won 2-0 against Botafogo (placed 19th). Before that game, the 2-1 home victory against Goias.

The Corinthians fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 16 in 13 matches. Corinthians have conceded 17 in these home matches. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 1 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.
