But they did well in home games so far by picking two wins from the three games so far. Traditionally, they do well at home and will be eyeing an improved performance against a side like Gremio.
The Monday’s visitors are on a real run of form. They picked up their fourth consecutive by beating Fluminese in the away game last week. They also kept three clean sheets during the period. They have a 100% win record at home this season by winning all three games with clean sheets.

Cruzeiro vs Gremio: Prediction
We must expect another cagey affair when the teams took the field on Monday evening. Cruzeiro are a traditionally good home side, which has been carried on to this season. While, Gremio are a team in confidence with some excellent results both home and away.
Both sides are built on the basement of strong defensive units. Therefore, there is a big chance of this game to end in a goal-less draw or it will be a lone goal that separates them at the end of 90 minutes. We will go with the under goal markets, which we believe is the best option for this game with teams in excellent form.
