Gremio vs Athletico Paranaense
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 24 August 2019
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Arena do Gremio (Porto Alegre).
Gremio is not all having a good season. They are struggling to even make it to the Sudamericana spots and embarrassingly is winless in their last five matches in the league.
Meanwhile, PR is flying high right now, with registering four wins from the last five match-ups. They have a match in hand, and a considerable jump higher up the table is easily on the cards for them.
While the home advantage for Gremio could provide some shelter, the sheer form the visitors are in right now might be able to trump that obstacle.

Gremio vs Athletico Paranaense Prediction
While Gremio is struggling right now, they seem to raise their level once they are in front of the home crowd. On the same note, despite the form PR is in, they appear to forget all about that once they take a hike to Porto Alegre.
Their inability to find a goal at this stadium is touching alarming rates. In fact, Athletico has scored just two goals so far from the last eleven straight games at this stadium combined.
Combining the recent struggles of Gremio and their home form, along with with with the shortcomings of PR at this venue, and their overall form at present – the deduction is for the match to be played to an evenly footed draw.
Moreover, goals will be scarce to come in this fixture taking into account the historical struggle of these sets of visitors, and the recent hardships of Gremio.
