Gremio vs America Mineiro
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 10 June 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Arena do Gremio, Porto Alegre.
Gremio’s fine thread of five consecutive clean sheets in all competitions came to an end on Wednesday evening when they fell 0-2 at home to last term’s runners-up Palmeiras. The defeat was a hard blow to team’s title aspirations and it will be interesting to see if Renato Gaucho will be able to find the way to motivate his lads to bounce back on Sunday against league newcomers America Mineiro.
The visitors seem to be enjoying their time in the elite after earning the immediate promotion into the Serie A football last year. They’ve been a tough nut to crack to all teams in the opening nine rounds and Gremio will have to be at their best if they are to clinch the result here.

- Imortal Tricolor completely dominated the match-up over the course of history.

Gremio vs America Mineiro Predictions
There are several reasons why we fancy Gremio here. Obviously, the first one is the super impressive H2H record they have in matches against America Mineiro who have never been a tricky opposition to the Imortal Tricolor, especially when it comes to affairs at Arena do Gremio.
Moving forward, Coelho took most of their points in front of the home crowd this season and they’ll head into this after winning just 1 out of possible 12 in four away games in Serie A. Finally, Renato Gaucho should be able to count on services of three super important first team regulars once again here (Luan, Arthur and Leo Moura).
The home win can thus be regarded as a banker at 1.80 odds, whiel we will also back the hosts to keep things tight at the back at 2.30.
