Flamengo vs Gremio
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 13th July 2017
Kick off at 23:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Luso-Brasilieiro.
Brazilians will have the chance to enjoy two super derbies in the Matchday No 13.
Flamengo and Gremio are set to take on each other just a day after the derby between Palmeiras and Corinthians.
This is going to be equally entertaining game with sky-high stakes as the winner gets the second position and a major confidence boost ahead of the rest of the season.
Nothing could have announced a strong challenge for the very top of the table for Flamengo after the first couple of games in the new Serie A campaign.
Urubu, however, managed to find the wanted shape and claim six wins on the trot to join the top of the standings.
The latest of the successes came at the weekend when the team led by Ze Ricardo picked up a 0-1 win over Vasco da Gama at Estadio Club de Regatas.
Gremio, on the other side, seem to be losing the grip as they were even involved in the battle for the first place with Corinthians earlier.
Timao are now ten points off at the top as Renato Gaucho’s side experienced yet another embarrassing loss at the weekend when the league’s newcomers Avai took the full pray from Porto Alegre.
Flamengo vs Gremio: Head to head
Gremio lead the head to head tie by three wins, but Urubu have been much more successful in most recent head to head encounters winning back-to-back games on the home patch.
Flamengo vs Gremio: Prediction
We can easily see Flamengo making it three wins in a row over Imortal Tricolor at acceptable odds of 3/4.
Gremio failed to find the back of the net in three of their last fixtures and we would not be surprised to see them off target this Thursday as well.
