Cruzeiro vs Gremio Predictions & Match Preview

Cruzeiro vs Gremio
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 8 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Mineirão (Belo Horizonte).

The loss that Cruzeiro faced in Copa do Brazil has put a damp cloth on their unbeaten run of four in the league. The team will try to bounce back in this upcoming tie, particularly so since they enjoy the home status this Sunday.

But one thing they definitely will have to keep an eye on would be their cyclical run of good performances coupled with bad ones that severely limit their achievements.

Visiting contingent Gremio will count on the inconsistency of their hosts very much. They absolutely need to, as the team is currently struggling to make a foray into the top tier at the moment. And on top of that, their away stats are not that impressive either.

Cruzeiro vs Gremio Prediction

First things first – Cruzeiro has the home advantage, and they have been using it effectively against this opponent for quite some time. To quote a stat, 13 of the previous 16 h2h wins at this venue went to the hosts. Also, Gremio has been struggling this season to perform well on the road. They have so far registered a sole win in away ties in league fixtures.

As such, count on the hosts to avoid a loss.

Going on, despite the home team coming out marginally better, both are struggling in fact at the moment, and this will reflect for sure in terms of goals scored.

While the hosts for the day have failed to post an average of one goal per home fixture, their counterparts have done the same on the road. Moreover, this has been a prevalent trend in h2h clashes too, and this makes Under 2.5 Goals a viable option.
