Flamengo vs Gremio
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 10 August 2019
Kick-off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Maracana (Rio de Janeiro).
Gremio may be unbeaten in their last five matches, but the team is struggling to get into the playoff mix. Right now, the squad is placed 13th in the table, with just 17 points from their total 13 league appearances.
Their away form might be a big enough reason for the squad’s low placing in the points-table, as they have managed just a single win on the road so far.
Flamengo fans will happily welcome this incoming contingent and coupling the form of the hosts at this venue, they will expect nothing short of a dominating win, which could put them back into the race for the top-most position.
Flamengo vs Gremio Head-to-head (h2h)
- Flamengo won the last two matches.
- Gremio failed to score in the last two meetings.
- Nine of the last ten wins went to home sides.
- 12 of the last 15 wins at this stadium went to Flamengo.
Flamengo vs Gremio Prediction
Do not let the unbeaten matches of Gremio fool you into a false sense of security. Despite their streak, the number of wins is surprisingly low, and especially so on the road. In fact, their last fourteen road trips could fetch them just four wins, and against a mighty home side like that of Flamengo, this return would certainly not be enough.
The hosts of the day are unbeaten in their last 13 home ties on the trot, and impressively, 12 of them were wins. The squad had also scored two or more goals in nine of their last eleven such encounters.
In addition, nine of the last ten h2h wins went to the sides with the home advantage, and at this venue, Flamengo recorded 12 of the last 15 wins.
All these stats point towards a comfortable evening for the home team.
